Verified Buyer Reviewed by Edward Abbey from New York on Thursday, February 16, 2017I've had these "shoots" (shoe/boots) for about 3 weeks. I'll update stars and information as I get it. I feel like you can't really give a thorough review of any footwear until you've put it through a year of solid work. Here are my first impressions.
Good fit. Hint: Figure out your European size (mine is a 44) and use that instead of the U.S. size. It's way more accurate. I've had boots and shoes that said they were 9 to 10.5 US, but all said 44 EUR and they all fit. Why is this? Because we're the last holdout that doesn't use the metric system I'd guess. So look at all your best shoes and check the EUR size. Stick with that. None of your shoes are made in the States.
I bought a US 10.5 EUR 44 and it's a solid fit. I have low volume feet and there is enough spacing so I'm not cinching the shoot laces flush: I can tighten with thin socks and it fits my foot with a heavy smartwool sock. If you have very big round feet, I might suggest going up a half size. If you are average volume to low volume, you should get a true fit.
The "shoots" are heavy. This is, as my name for it implies, not a running shoe or house shoe (even though the title calls it a "shoe"). These are boots with a shoe cut. Due to this, a little break-in has been required. I had some soreness around the front of my ankles, but that's dissipating now. The traction is excellent. It's even good on wet ceramic floors. It's very aggressive so not ideal for city walking, but very good for snow, mud, wet grass, and dirt. A little slippery on ice (go figure), but not horrible.
The waterproofing is excellent. They've kept my feet dry. They are quite warm, even with all the poly mesh ventilation between the leather. They have very good support. My feet have been comfortable with a daily walk to and from work of about 3 miles, and then a workday on my feet most of it. The inner removable insoles are thick and mold nicely to the foot, adding excellent cushioning to the stiff Morlin outsole. Heel to toe flex is boot stiff (Can't turn it into a "U" easily). Torsion flex is boot stiff (Hold heel and toe, try to twist the "shoot". It won't flex easily). Again, don't confuse these for shoes. Pricey to acceptable at $160, but not a must-have at $100 if you find it on sale.
That's all for now. I've thus far used them on steep terrain in snowstorms, hard rain, ice, mud, slick pavement, working deliveries for kitchens, and a hike now that they've broken in a bit. I would certainly recommend them so long as you understand what you're getting into...not shoes! That's exactly why I bought them and they are working out thus far. Three stars now as I don't know how they will hold up durability-wise. I'll update later. Could be a 4 star boot.
If you want something higher-end, go with the Lowa Renegade II GTX Lo. It's all-around better by a little bit.
If you want something lower-end, go with the Men’s Terrebonne OutDry Extreme Shoe. It flexes more like a shoe.
I hope that helps.
