I hike daily in the woods by our home. every season brings it challenges. these boots are for winter and fall.
on the first day I wore them this winter I noticed my feet were much warmer in my new boots. not too heavy, good traction.
so very happy with these all in all......

I got these specifically for my 4-day Inca Trail trek. Previously I preferred to wear trail shoes so this was my first pair of heavier boots with ankle protection. Even though these were heavier than what I'm used to, they were extremely comfortable from the start. I broke them in within a couple of hikes without any issues. These boots became my best friends during the trek since they were so sturdy, giving me peace of mind while hiking over miles of uneven terrain and slippery steps. It also rained pretty hard on a few days of the trek and my feet were completely dry. I recommend these whole-heartedly for hiking over rugged terrain. Maybe not the most feminine style of boots, but they will certainly give you peace of mind. The last thing you want to be doing on a trek is thinking about your feet.

I bought these boots for a multi-day backpacking trip this summer especially since my trusty Vasque Mantra trail shoes are wearing out from several seasons of hiking on rocky slopes. These boots have a nice construction and are very solid. The toe box is roomy and looks like it can take a lot of abuse. I wore them straight out of the box for a 5 mile hike and had no blisters whatsoever.
There is however, a slipperiness problem that was highlighted by previous reviewers. It's very likely due to a layer of wax/varnish at the bottom of the shoe - further confirmed when I ran my fingers over it and felt a white, dusty layer. I rubbed the bottom of the shoe on gravel for a bit and it didn't feel as slippery anymore. Lightly sandpapering the bottom should solve the problem.
DO NOT take this pairs of boots to anywhere with ice on the ground or loose rocks before treating the bottom first!

I just received these boots and wore them once. Are very comfortable with lots of toe room. I have a hammer toe and did not have any discomfort in these. They are top quality. I plan to hike the Grand Canyon in them in the fall .They are true to size. I wear a size 10 and they are right on.
We do not currently have this item in a wide width.

Hard question to answer
My Asolo hiking boots are the most comfortable I've ever owned right out of the box.
I normally wear an 8 or 8.5 US. My boots are UK7 or 8.5US. I never had a reason to measure my feet together at the widest point--they are 8 - 81/4 inches depending on how you hold the tape.
Good luck finding boots

I bought a size 10 which is my normal size, I actually measure a 9 but I have a very wide foot as I get older so I buy a 10 in dress shoes, tennis shoes, boots etc. This hiking boot fit perfectly. Lots of toe box room in front, lots of ankle support and great control when hiking. I have a hammer toe and this does not rub my foot so I would say it would be fine for you.
