It looks like the angle of the boot will be alright for her, and it is lighter than the Bare's. So I suppose I'll be ordering two of the Epic's in a size (0). If anyone has a size zero that they would like to swap for a size (1) I'll swap you! My Epic one is in pretty good shape. There are a few nicks in the gaiter that do not go all the way through and would "patch" with some clear nail polish to stick it back down. This boot is post 2005. I'm needing a size (0) for a spare boot which I'll carry in my pack. I could probably make do without hinds if I had too, but want a spare for the front in case we'd lose a boot on the trail.
I'm still very intrigued with the B-4 Boots, and part of me wants to order those as the say they absolutely WILL NOT RUB. They are way cheaper too and you can have them re-treaded. The colors were cool too "sparkles." They had red and green, and dark purple. I might call them today.
I ordered the Epics in pre-2005 so that I'd have the rounder shape for better fit. Ordered 3 of them so they better work!
