    The sizing was good but the comfort was less than I expected. Maybe they have to break-in but out-of-the-box they feel as though there is no arch support.

    As others have noted in their reviews, the shoes were a tad wide but were the correct length for my feet - 9.5 M US sizing, 43 euro size which I ordered. A thick sock was all I needed to take care of the width. The leather was very supple, the orange laces looked good, and Zamberlan included a pair of brown laces to supplement the purchase. During the first wear which was hours of off and on walking in town, I experienced no pinching, no rubbing, and no blisters. I've not yet had the opportunity to take them out for a more vigorous hike, but would be surprised if they gave me any problems.

    The quality of these shoes is truly fantastic, some of the most well-made shoes I've ever owned. They have a great, retro bowling shoe aesthetic, they're build like a tank and are relatively light compared to a traditional hiking boot. They also come with a pair of brown laces, so you don't have to wear the orange ones. That said, the fit is a little odd. I typically wear an 11 to 11 1/2 US, which is, more often than not, a 45 Euro, but not all companies equate US/Euro sizes the same. I tried the 45 in these, but, when I got the box, it said 45/10.5 on the box. I had read that these ran large, but the 45 crunched my toes pretty hard, so I exchanged for 46. That arrived saying 12 on the box, and they swamped me, so I had to exchange again. The 45.5s came, which the box called an 11, and they were definitely the best fit for me. That said, like many Italian shoes, these are fairly tight around the toes, and, if anything, are a little loose around the ankle. It almost seems as if they too the cut for the taller boot and just removed the ankle covering, and the shoes have a little ankle movement without the full boot. When I lace, they are synched all the way town at the top to avoid slippage, and, while I have the perfect length at the toes, they are definitely snug in the width. If you're happiest in something with a wide toe box, like a Keen or Birk, or if you plan to actually use them for hiking, then these might not be the best shoes for you. Also, these have a almost a dress shoe footbed, with just a little padding in the heel, and none under the toes. I find them very comfortable, but, if you like a cushioned footbed, or if you spend a lot of time walking on concrete, you might want to purchase insoles (which might make the toe box even more snug). The other annoying thing is the Zamberlan label on the side of the shoes, which is completely unnecessary. But, other than that, the build quality on these shoes is exceptional. Really, you'll be thrilled to hold them the first time you take them out of the box. The leathers are gorgeous, and are treated with some kind of oil that makes it easy to rub out scuffs. Overall, a really beautiful pair of shoes that I get lots of compliments on.

    Quality hiking shoes (materials and construction) with great heel and arch support and ample space in the toe box for metetarsal spread. Comfortable first wear requiring minimal break in. Waterproof as a bonus. Versatile color won't show the terrain you've traversed. True to size. I wish I had these 40 years ago when I started hiking, my feet are in much better shoes now. Thank you STP aNd Zamberlan for this great pair of shoes
