New Favorite Hiking/Walking Shoes!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Karen4 from New Hampshire on Monday, December 19, 2016
Ever since I discovered this San Francisco-based company Ahnu, I am in love with their products. This is my second pair of Montara II hiking shoes. They do run pretty true to size, but I order up a ½ size to allow for thicker socks. I am typically a size 8M in shoes and an 8 ½ in sneakers. My first pair is a size 8 and I've been wearing them everywhere with no issues (while wearing a medium weight Smartwool sock). These ordered are an 8 ½. They give just that tiny bit of room for a heavier sock if needed. They are also waterproof, which makes them perfect for walking outside when there's just a little bit of snow. I also own the Sugarpine style hiking boot. Those, too, are great. Super warm and waterproof, even though they are not meant to be a winter boot. They are good when the temps are in the 20's. Some people might have an issue with the way these Montara are cut in the back--they do come up pretty high on the back of the foot. Sizing up that ½ size might alleviate any potential problem with that, but it depends on your foot!
