High Quality Boot

Verified Buyer Reviewed by G Gordon Liddy from Minnesota on Friday, September 4, 2015
I purchased pairs for myself and my wife. We usually wear regular or standard width shoes but, after reading the reviews, we ordered these in wide. My usual size is 12 in most shoes so I ordered 12 wide. When I first tried these on upon their delivery, they seemed a tad big and I began to question whether I should've ordered an 11.5 wide or a 12 regular. They just seemed a bit roomy and clunky. However, they were incredibly comfortable and the quality is amazing. Therefore, I decided to wear my usual system of two pairs of socks -- a synthetic liner and a merino wool top sock (Smartwool). I then laced them up tightly and wore them around the house for a couple hours. There was no more than a quarter inch of lift in my heel on steps. I could not fit a finger behind my heel when my foot was pushed forward. And eventually, the insoles adjusted to my feet so as to prevent any pivoting.

There are several reviews suggesting these run small. That may be the case with respect to width. But size is spot on. Order your usual shoe size in wide. Then, try them on with two socks and break them in by wearing them around the hous. You will find that the toe area is extra roomy to a degree making you think they're too big. But concentrate on the arch and heel. You'll realize they are what they're supposed to be. A very well made, comfortable, and stable hiking/backpacking boot that can handle any terrain or climate. I love them.
