I really like STP, but they dropped the ball on this one. The boots looked good, but the shoe lace eye on the left boot was defective. I returned them, and they sent the same pair back, or there are a number of boots with the exact same defect. Then they charged me shipping on the second return. I complained and they gave me a $10 gift card. The tried to use the gift card, but there was no credit on it. I guess once you fall into the black hole there is no way out!!

I really had high hopes for an American made hiking boot, but these are easily outclassed by any european manufacturers hiker. After wearing them on a 30 mile, 2day backpacking trip (with a previous month of break-in time), I finally gave up on these. They may have a place on the farm or for work, but they lack in basic support/comfort/breathabilty you need on the trail. Worst of all, the absence of speed laces and a locking lace stud, made for frequent, time consuming re-adjusting.
Thankfully, Sierra has the best return program I've ever used. So, Now do I go Lowa or Asolo for my replacement pair?

I was disappointed in the fit the top 3 or 4 eyelets should have been hooks for easy lace-up...I would bet I have bought 15 pair of boots from STP... I never return anything, but, I did return these boots.. Great service from STP, I will be making future orders, sometimes things just dont work out

I thought I would try this brand but the quality was very poor. Knowing these were 2nd's I expected an appearance problem, but appearance was good. When I first tried them on and tightened the laces the top row of D rings came away from the clasp and found the 2nd row were loose. If not for the D ring issues these would be a good hiking boot for the price.
