Two major issues I had with these boots. First and foremost, I concur with an earlier review that claimed it was like walking in Ski Boots. Way too stiff for hiking boots. Secondly, they ran a little small. I normally wear a 10.5. I ordered an 11 for thicker socks, but even wearing thin socks, they are too short. I didn't really get to test them in the woods, but I don't think that I would have the patience to break them in properly, if they would break in at all.
