I got 1/2'size bigger than my shoe size and they fit perfectly. They are attractive as gortex boots go and have a sturdy tread on the bottom as well as a thick sole.
they are not.light weight but keep my feet cozy next time I visit Quebec in February.

I've had these now for 5 months. They are my everyday shoes. They still look almost as good as the day I got them. The only issue that I have had is the outer sheath of the lace breaking due to the plastic upper lacing rings. This happens with most of my shoes/boots but happened sooner than I would have expected with these. I bought them in October and am writing this in March so they have been worn through a rough Chicago winter and have held up well. The outsole tread could be more aggressive for better grip but is sufficient. They fit true to size. For what I paid I am very satisfied with them.

I tried to like this shoe, with its unusual color and styling. But I couldn't get over how low the toe box was ... no room to flex or wiggle your toes. Also, the sole is narrow and feels like you're balancing on a surface smaller than your foot itself. The heel counter was comfortable, as were the low-cut ankle sides, and the long lacing area gives lots of room for adjustments. But my toes said no.

The shoe seems well made and comfortable. This is my second pair because the upper lace system on the first pair broke after the 4th time I wore them.
Don't know if it was bad design or bad luck. Sierra TP was very good about standing behind the shoes and exchanged the broken with new.

I went to REI and tried on 10 pairs of hiking boots none of them fit my feet or provided enough ankle support . Kland gives you a lot more quality for your dollar than some of the other big names. I was concerned about how stiff these boots were a boots broken in after five days of use . These boots allow you to fill confident and nimble while navigating rocky trails. Mid-duty support at the weight of a lightweight hiker. I'm very impressed with the EVA midsole . I anticipate getting 500 miles out of these boots.

I ordered this boot twice hoping the replacement would be better. The left boot was made slightly different. The tongue had a bit more material on the right snoide. This caused a hot spot on my ankle.
I returned the boots for credit.

Shoes appear to be well made. Plenty of room for heavier socks, orthotics or a wider foot. However, beware of the sizing. The sizes listed on the order page are apparently men's sizes (even when this page comes up as a woman's shoe). However, I saw no notation of this on the item page.
I ordered size 8.5, expecting that to be a woman's size. The shoe that came was labeled "M 8.5, W 10".
Three star rating reflects the sizing problem. I couldn't evaluate the shoe further because it was way too big, then had to pay for return shipping. The correct equivalent size wasn't available for exchange.
