I wanted to have a nice sturdy classic hiking boot without a Gore-tex lining for warmer dryer hiking conditions. This boot fit the bill, so I ordered in my usual size 12 wide. The boots feel a little bigger than what I am use to, but with a thick sock and my own insoles, they felt good when I tried them on. Like another reviewer said, the insole that comes with it is [...], like so many insoles that come with boots nowadays. This boot is the stiffest boot out of the box that I have ever purchased. After three weeks of wearing them around the house for many hours, they are now starting to mold to my foot and are becoming more supple every time I wear them. I have treated them a couple times with a leather conditioner and put a good coating of Obenaufs leather preservative, which has helped tremendously. I for see having this boot around for many years to come.
