OK, an old fashioned hiker.

I ordered these because they were leather- its hard to find a full grain leather boot these days. They fit ok- if I hadn't ordered another boot that was just blissful, I would have kept them, because I got sick of shopping for boots. However, the quality of these is not as good as another pair of leather boots I tried on from STP. not horrible quality, just not excellent- a C, not an A or an F. The heel is an actual heel, cut in at an angle, which I would not prefer for backpacking- I could see it causing me to trip. I prefer the rounded heel/ arch on the sole of modern style boots. I also guessed from looking at them that they would need waterproofing pretty quickly- did not look like the original treatment would hold long. As another reviewer said, these were decent width- they pretty much fit my very wide toes.
