Liked the looks and quality of these shoes but they ran 1/2 size small and were pretty narrow. Almost traded for a size up but STP had some Patagonia shoes at about the same price so I went for them instead.

Snowbank and cold weather worthy boots. Very comfortable for walking through snow, slush. Order your usual size if you wish to wear thicker socks, but you won't need them since these boots are so well insulated. I didn't find laces an issue and I prefer them actually as this allows for more customization for various situations. Suggest that you pre-spray with silicone to keep the suede protected if you need to deal with salted streets. These boots seem low maintenance and will just need minimal suede care.

I bought a pair of these about a month age. Haven't hiked in them yet, but for day to day wear they are perfect. I have no doubts that they are good for hiking as well, though I can't specifically comment on that yet. I like them so much that I have already bought another pair.

Pay attention to the reviews, these definitely run small, mostly in the toe box. I wear an 11 in dress shoes (Allen Edmonds, Santoni) and most other shoes. Ordered an 11.5 and debated long and hard about returning them for a 12 because the toe box was a bit snug. I decided to stay with the 11.5 and they loosened up after the first day of wear. They are slightly warmer than mesh shoes, but not as warm as the waterproof shoes I have purchased. All and all a nice shoe, just run a bit small, more so in the toe box than length.

Wore these for the first time yesterday on a couple mile jog. Comfortable shoe, right out the box. They run a tad big, but not enough to where I could have gone down a half size... All I all a nice shoe for the price I paid. Hoping they hold up.

I really like these hiking boots, I have been searching for a pair that I like and these are both pleasing to the eye and comfortable. I took the advice of other reviewers and ordered half a size up. If you wear thin socks I would recommend sticking to your normal size, however if you wear thick wool socks like I do I would definitely order that half size up. I normally wear a 7.5 in Nike running shoes and ordered an 8 in these boots.

Great winter hiking shoes. Can be used just for walking in the city in cold weather, and stay warm. Also, even on the most slippery surface, ice, black ice, they don't skid. Tried them during freezing cold winter hike to Mt. Algonquin- have no complains! Shoes stayed warm even in -20F and very comfortable for a full day hike.

Like always, lowa shoes and boots are comfy from the first time you wear them. No break in time. I am a true 7 .5 and these felt too roomy so I thru in another footbed and works! Gortex is always a bonus

Wore them on a 12 days hike in Patagonia, thought it was not winter but it was rather cold! Went through rough trails, rocks, dirt, snow, rain, shallow river, mud.... never got wet inside! Tough and sturdy, fits very well, the best hiking boots I've had.
