Sorry for the delay....back on this:
I really like the Adventures. They are not like anything else we offer; they're more supportive at the ankle, and softer in the midsole (the exact opposite of the Gaerne Balance Oiled...). They have good ankle protection but are still easy to walk in. Of course they sacrifice frontal impact protection, but this is primarily a concern in the narrow stuff. You can see the molded ankle support:
They are also taller than other ADV boots we have, at 13.25". Weight is 2.86 lbs for size 11s.
They also have plastic toe protectors on BOTH sides.
Soles are molded on. They are MUCH grippier than most ADV boots, easier to walk on wet stuff, etc.
Under pants, they almost look like hiking boots:
In this pic is a pair that I have had for 2+ years. They have about 2k of good offroad miles on them, and plenty of walking. They show hardly any wear.
I've worn them a bunch, and like 'em.
