Finally! A decent pair of boots.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dr. John from Matamata, New Zealand on Saturday, April 24, 2010
My wife, daughter, and I do day-long hikes at least once per week. After going through several pairs of lower-cost boots and either having poor fit for my extra-wide feet, or having the boots fall apart thru delamiination of the sole or seams coming apart, I bit the bullet and ordered these gems in the EE width. Quality of construction is excellent. Break-in was not bad - a couple of walks around town, plus mowing the lawn in them twice, and I did a 6-hr walk on steep terrain with no probs. I wear a pair of SmartWool hiking socks over a pair of wicking liner socks, and I have happy feet. I did pull out the insoles provided, and replace them with proper full-length orthotics to deal with my high arches and ankle eversion. I'd happily recommend them for anyone. I liked them so much, I bought a pair for my wife as well, in 8.5 Mens (10 Womens). Cheers...
