Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mtnbiker from Colorado on Tuesday, March 29, 2016Once again Chaco makes a nice looking, comfortable boot. These run a little small, I normally wear a 7 but needed a 71/2 in these. Love them
Verified Buyer Reviewed by teamorg from California on Tuesday, April 28, 2015Far better than any over the counter insert I've tried in my shoes, Chaco shoes give great arch support. This boot fit a little looser in the heel than my other pair of Chaco shoes, but not bad enough to warrant a return. I wish Chaco would keep making casual shoes.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Riverrun from Oakland on Monday, March 30, 2015I already bought a pair of these and people talked about the high arch. Having somewhat flat feet, I wondered but since Sierra has such an easy return policy, I tried them. The high arch felt weird for some time, but I wore them around all day, walking more than I usually do -- and the next day my feet felt better than usual.
So for people like me, who need arch support, these are perfect.
Also -- have always like the desert boot style, but these are the first ones with the boot cut and the laces set so that they lace up snugly.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Gracie the Gal from Chicago on Monday, February 23, 2015I gave these to my husband for his bday and he really liked them. But they are extremely difficult to get on and once on, they are just not comfortable.
They dont give at all, are very cumbersome and hurt his feet. Too bad, they are nice looking.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by The Great Outdoors from USA on Wednesday, February 18, 2015At first glance and fitment, these boots are deceiving...they seem unusually arch unfriendly and appear to be potentially stiff and uncomfortable. That assessment couldn't be more inaccurate...these boots are incredible straight from the box. They break in almost immediately and the arch support is superior! I wore these all day long and preferred to wear them again in the days that followed...how many boots can you say that about? They are tough, rugged and comfortable, true to size and plenty of room in the toe box...don't let these slip through your fingers. Great boot, great price and STP is the best!
Question & Answer

“Would these hold up and dry quickly if they were used for boundary waters canoe tripping? Would they be good on wet rocks? Are they similar at all to the Chaco Tedhino?”
I don't think so -- really designed for walking -- solid soles, firm toe box...
don;t think they'd be flexible enough -- in a canoe they'd probably be somewhat clunky
I'd think something more like climbing shoes would be closer to what you want.
These are not a waterproof boot like the Tedhino. Since they do not have a gusseted tongue and the exterior is just a canvas material, my personal opinion is that these would not make a good water boot. I have worn them while it was raining and wet outside and they perform very well on concrete and asphalt, I would have to imagine since they are not designed to be a "water-boot", they may not perform as you may need them on rounded, wet and mossy rocks frequently found in riverbeds for canoeing or rafting. I found these Chaco Otis canvas boots to be so perfect for an everyday work boot, that I purchased several pair!
I need something that will hold up to being wet all day, worn in a canoe and when necessary in the water over the boot height, worn over wool socks. Then in relatively humid weather I want it to dry as much as possible overnight while at camp. There is a great deal of up and down portaging over granite rocks and through the brush and also through muskeg ( a boot sucking deep mud patch of marshy muck). Looking for something that will stay on in muskeg, provide ankle support for portaging heavy loads, will drain well and dry as quickly as possible. In the past I used Merrill Moabs which are good for everything but drying. My daughter got a pair of the blue canvas (not waterproof) Tedhinos and thought those worked better but they are not sold for men anywhere that I can find. Thanks for your help.
I'm sure they would hold up but they would not dry quickly. Not really a water sport boot.
According to our fit models this item is running true to size.
A Nikwax product could make them very water resistant.
