Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Reviewed by BRS from Montana on Monday, December 5, 2016I've had these boots for 3 years now, and they are one of the best pairs of boots I've ever owned. The most important thing in a hiking boot is the way it fits your foot. Different companies use different lasts. If the last used to build the boot isn't right for your foot then the build quality won't matter, it will still be uncomfortable. A boot shouldn't necessarily be rated poorly just because it doesn't fit your particular foot. That said, the Haglof''s Vertigo is a spot on fit for my foot and the build quality is nothing short of excellent. The high quality sole insert is a plus. It doesn't need to be replaced with an aftermarket insole like most boots. This is a true quality hiking boot, not a high top tennis shoe. The ankle support is great, and the boot needs a break-in period before any serious excursions, but they are amazingly light for the support they provide. I've put them through the ringer in all kinds of weather and mountain terrain and they still look good enough to wear around town without being embarrassed. Sierra Trading Post was great to deal with as always, and I should have bought another pair when they had them in my size to replace if these ever wear out. Highly recommended.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by sf from Indian Trail, NC on Tuesday, February 10, 2015I cannot believe I got these after discount for $85! Very well made boots but very stiff out of the box. Wearing these on a camping trip fresh out of the box is just asking for quarter to half-dollar sized blisters just on the hike to the campsite. Trust me, I know, I wore a pair of Montrail Moraine AT's fresh out of the box on a 3 day camping trip once and wound up with huge open blisters on both heels. The 4 star rating will probably be 5 stars once these boots are sufficiently broken. They are very supportive, great tread, incredible workmanship, and nuke proof when it comes to ankle support. Buy them if you can, especially if you have an additional 40% off and free shipping.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Crippled hiker from Beaver, Utah on Wednesday, February 4, 2015I have only had these boots on one time and that was a day in the office. The fit is terrible. Roomy in the toes and heel but extremely tight across the top of my foot. They are too narrow for my foot shape. I should return them as I don't think that addition wearing time is going to change how they feel. That's what you get buying a product made in China.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Freelander from Denver, CO on Tuesday, February 3, 2015Have been wearing these for a couple of weeks now. This is my first pair of Haglofs. They were quite firm in overall feel initially. Breaking them in like a nice pair of dress shoes. I heated the insoles in the oven according to the instructions. That definitely helped them form fit to your feet. A bit like a ski boot liner. They feel solid...like they are going to last. The construction is very well done and they are quite sharp looking for a hiking boot. I plan on using these for many years to come. Would definitely buy again. Thank you STP for another great deal! :)
Reviewed by Wyoming Badger from wyoming on Saturday, January 17, 2015I order most of my shoes from Sierra Trading Post. Never heard of Haglofs before, but they looked good so I gave them a try. These are the first boots in a long time, that I knew I was keeping as soon as I laced em up. They look great, the fit is stellar, and the price was right where I needed it to be. I have only had them for a few weeks now, but I know these will be my go-to boots as soon as I'm able to get back into the mountains. I wear a size 10, bought a 10 and they are perfect. I also have a wide fore foot...again these fit great. The moldable sole feels good as well.
Question & Answer
“Do all of these boots come with the heat-moldable insoles, and is it better to mold them or just leave them alone. I ask this because I have EXTREMELY flat feet, I am wearing them for the first time now and the arches feel more pronounced than most boots. ”
I agree, they are more pronounced, both shaped and higher---the insoles in most boots are basically just flat foam products. I have medium-high arches, and the SOLE moldable insoles in my Haglofs worked for me from the beginning. On the other hand, I have had heat-moldable soles from the same company (SOLE) that I got from STR a few years ago, and I have found that they don't work in some boots---after using them in a pair of Hanwags for a couple of months, I just removed them and went back to a simple boot insole (plus a 2/3 orthotic) and it is working much better for me. My experiences have taught me to try different shapes, sizes, types, and thicknesses of insoles in my boots until I find the best result.
My wife, on the other hand, has very flat feet and after trying many different products, relies on off-the-shelf from GoodFeet.
I heated them in the oven per the recommendation, and it seemed to work well. I wouldn't call the difference marked, more subtle if anything. I have a few quite a few miles on mine now, mainly short hikes in the foothills here outside of Denver and really like the boots. Hope that helps.
“Are these fairly flexible boots that can be worn for every day use and the trail, or are they stiff and only good for hiking and backpacking?”
They're a little bit stiff at first, but I think after a week or two of wearing them them be perfect for everyday wear. They're pretty great boots and I'm glad I found them.
I travel frequently, and wear them through airports regularly. Very comfortable, and the top issue I had out of box worked itself out in a matter of days.
Good question, one that I spent time on---I wore the boots around the house for several weeks before deciding to keep them and take them out on a trail.
I'm glad I kept them. They are flexible and light, not the traditional backpacking boot. For example, just yesterday I wore them all day---including a 6 mile walk on a paved trail along a river, at a 4 mph clip. They felt great all day, and particularly good on the paved trail---noticeably supportive, and I experienced a bit of a spring in my step. At end of the day, still comfortable on my feet, with no hot spots. I think they are worth trying, since the Sierra return policy is so reasonable.
These are a bit stiff in the package, but should break in with some use.
“In HagLofs official web site, http://www.haglofs.com/en-US/products/footwear/offroad/men/haglofs_crag_hi_ii_en-us.aspx, there is size in UK 8.5, may i know if UK 8.5 is equivalent to size 42 or 43?”
According to the sizing info on the box the Euro 42 is a UK 8 and the Euro 43 is a UK 9.
