Men's Monty Hi - Slate/Gum
It’s true that the Monty is inspired by the light hikers of the 80s, but we wouldn’t go so far as to call it a retro style. We’ve built the Monty on a slim, modern last, we utilize top quality materials, and state of the art manufacturing processes to make them. However, they do have definite analog aesthetic about them. We love the proportions and simplicity of the pattern which mask the real light-hiker abilities we’ve built in. The exposed EVA midsole cushions every step while the TP heel clip keeps you locked in. Our vari-flex lasting board does double duty as a shank to make sure flexion is controlled, but doesn’t sacrifice daily wearability, and it’s also available with a fully waterproof liner. On top of that, did we mention that the Monty comes in both low-top and hi-top (technically more of a mid-top) versions? Talk about versatility.

Adventures With Ridgemont Hikers
these are a pleasant enough fit for my foot, which i consider to be on the narrow side. i typically wear a size 8.5/39 eu and these are perfect for me in a women's 8.5. they work with both thinner and thicker socks. i do have to loosen the laces each time i put them on and find it a chore to get them on and off, which is a small limitation. the color is fading faster than i imagined it might and the loop on the back is quite frayed considering the amount of wear and use they have had, but overall i am pleased with my purchase and will order from Ridgemont again!
I really like the look and feel of these boots, but seriously, they are WAY too difficult to get on your feet.
They do exactly what i hoped by providing ankle support and traction for trail and hill walking. I don’t wear them for runs but can jog for a little while in reasonable comfort. Good for a day outside. Only downside I’ve found is sloppy finish on the loop in the back of heel; the sides are fraying. Great deal!
