Kind of Weird Fit and Squeak Like Crazy

Verified Buyer Reviewed by BigJon from Marietta GA on Saturday, February 16, 2013
Only Time will tell. The longest pair of shoes/boots I've ever worn. I wear an 11 1/2, these are 1/2" longer than any pair of running shoes I own and almost a full inch longer than a pair of Raichle boots I have. A narrow last, my foot is just barely D width and low volume (read boney), if you have a wide foot or a full figured foot you probably don't want these boots. The lacing system is one of the cable pull type, I have that on my snowboard boots but it can be tightened on the forefoot and then going up the boot. These only have one point for tightening. This sounds crazy but these boots squeak like no boots I've ever worn before. I wore them around the house for several days trying o make up my mind whether or not to keep them - but on soft surfaces they don't squeak. Wearing them on a hard surface like sidewalk, makes them squeak so loud that I could hear my own echo. Never quite experienced that before. I was looking for a pair of waterproof lightweight hiking boots, the jury is still out on these but I would try another brand/model if I had it to do over.
