I bought these for my husband for work. We work for a ski resort so he is constantly hiking really steep terrain, climbs lift towers and currently has a painful tendon injury so he really needed a comfortable and sturdy hiking boot. I read all of the great reviews on these boots and decided to buy them for him. I wasn't worried about the sizing issue or buying on line because Sierra Trading Post has such an incredible return policy. My husband is wearing them for the first time today. He said that there really isn't any break in required for him and that the boots are super comfy. I will update my post in a week or two if there is any change in his opinion but for now he is very pleased with the comfort and support of the boots around his ankle injury straight out of the box.
They do run a little big. He could have gone down an entire size but wants to be able to wear thick socks in the winter since we are in the Sierra Nevada mountains. He ended up sizing down a half size.

Guidance on boots states "runs large" order 1/2 size smaller. I wear a U.S. size 8 so ordered 7.5. In fact, 7.5 too small. Returned boots and ordered a size 8.5. Probably could have gone with an 8. Boots fit well with medium cushion sock; might put new insole in boot. Otherwise boots are very comfortable, look good, and are light in weight. Seem to have good support but have not taken a strenuous hiking trip yet.

First thing to know is that these boots run big. I wear size 10 everything and the 9.5 fits perfectly right out of the box with a pair of mid-weight hiking socks.
Secondly, the craftsmanship is supreme and the feel is sturdy but not stiff. I have not taken them out on a long trek yet but despite being brand new, there
is little to "break in."
Third, they seem to breath okay for waterproof, which I would expect from the Gore-Tex and from the retail price tag. They are too nice to get wet yet but I assume the promise holds water.

Look, I went ahead and spent a bit more money than I should, but when these came in and I looked at the double stitching, the quality of boot, I am so glad I did. These are well made. I cant wait to try them out. I bought a whole size larger than normal.

I have tried all the top brand boot makers looking for the perfect boot for my foot, Lowa's, Zamberlan, Kenetrek, Asolo, ect. all are well made boots, but they just didn't fit my feet. There always was some issue that would irritate my feet (either the heel would slip or the toe box was too tight). I bought these with low expectations, but have been pleasantly suprised. These are the most comfortable boots I have ever had on my feet. They are lightweight but stable on uneven ground or side hilling. They are not as stiff as some I have tried but give adequate support with a 40lb pack. I can't wait for this years Archery Elk season with my new Hanwag's. I like them so much I bought a second pair. I also found I needed a 1/2 size bigger than I normally wear.

Loving them right out of the box. The lacing allows me to lace them to hold my foot firm and comfortable, allowing flex in the ankle. Good ankle support. I have always rotated my shoes on a daily basis. I fear these will be my all the time boot/shoe, until I can afford another pair anyway.
