I purchased these shoes based on reviews and I really wanted to like them. When they arrived, they looked to be constructed very well and I appreciated the robust traction on the soles. However, I have a wide foot and these were too narrow for me. The ankle support was pretty stiff and it did begin to chaffe after a few hours of just wearing them around the house. Also, they seem quite hard under the forefoot area. I will return these and continue my search for a wide woman's hiking shoe/boot. Dang!

Really love these. Ordered in a few sizes to make sure got the right size and kept two pair--one for regular socks and one for thick socks! Have gotten several compliments which tells you how great they look. The great protection they give makes them a tad stiff but are still fine. I wear them all day for running errands and outdoor work. Very happy with purchase!

Love the look of the shoe, the fit is perfect with a pair of wool hiking socks, the only drawback is they are stiff around the ankle and dig in a bit, although this does not prevent me from wearing them all day. I am a gardener landscaper and these are replacing my worn out Asolos. One other thing I noticed is they carry mud. Would not recommend them for muddy terrain. Overall good shoe for the price and am happy with them.
