    All the OTB boots are running with the NB logo now…however after killing my desertlites NB needs to take a look at the dual-density insole. It’s utter trash, I believe it is the same insole in almost all of the OTB line. The boot Desertlites by themselves with the addition of a good insole are top notch for almost anything.

    It is my recommendation that if anyone purchases this or any other OTB that they go for the SofSole air orthotic, I had SpenCo full support insoles in my OTBs but I killed those as well.

    New Balance purchased a great line…they just need to rework the insoles and some of the other engineering involved to make them more comfortable.
