Reviewed by NWHiker from Seattle on Thursday, February 27, 2014I have only worn these a couple of times on short hikes, but so far things have been going pretty good. I ordered a half-size up from normal and they fit just right.
One weird thing is that there was a strange hard spot in the stitching, on the tongue. These boots were almost unwearable at first. I had to take the boots off and kind of smash the spot a little to work it out. It seems that after a little work these boots are starting to break-in just fine, but it has taken a few hikes. I certainly wouldn't recommend wearing these on a long hike, right out of the box though.
I would say it is worth the hassle for the price, the boots seem to be pretty high-quality otherwise.
Reviewed by MichMike from Michigan on Friday, February 7, 2014Yeah. It's on there. Right now (6:59AM, Friday, 7 February 2014), it's the second review shown, just below the review by "Sarah from Boston." But STP wants me to do another review--their email says "We hope you are pleased with your new purchase." By reading my first review, it's pretty easy to understand why I returned the boots, right? Then why is it that the "reason" given on the invoice for the refund to me is "DON'T LIKE FABRIC?" What's the problem with the fabric? I don't know. I thought that it was fine. Apparently, someone at STP has a problem with the boots. You would think that they would want to talk them up to sell them rather than shoot them down! But who knows. Since I sent the boots back, I can't provide an update on how the boots are doing for me, except, I can say that I don't have the pain problem with my shins anymore--so in that regard, they're OK (but they don't provide good traction in the snow, either--since I don't have them to wear out in our Michigan winter). So if you want to waste 16 or 17 bucks for shipping back and forth, and have nothing to show for it other than hurting shins, you can also see how these boots will do for you.
Reviewed by SPM from Boston, MA on Monday, February 3, 2014Bought these for my dh and he loves them! Haven't tried them hiking yet (bought too late in the fall) but he wore them until the snow started to fall, and even after. Loves the fit and the traction. Fits true to size for a 13 from what he's told me. Great buy, thanks!
Reviewed by MichMike from Michigan on Thursday, January 30, 2014These appear to be good, well-constructed boots. They fit true -to-size and fit my narrow feet well. Interior padding is minimal so thicker socks would be preferred with these boots. Unfortunately for me, I was not able to evaluate them in the real world. As soon as I put them on, laced them up and took a few steps on a carpeted floor, I experienced pain in both lower shins from the hard, sharp corners at the fronts of the collars of both boots. Standing still, the boots were comfortable, but walking was not. Although the price was great, it's not worth the pain, so I returned them.
Reviewed by novanation from PA on Wednesday, January 22, 2014I did not like this version of the shoe. Too many changes and the comfort was gone. So many companies keep messing up a perfectly good product.

I usually wear an 11 and I ordered 11.5 in these, and I was happy with the fit. I guess that means they run a bit small. I hope that helps.
I found them true to size in length. They seemed a little narrow upon first wearing but have stretched just a bit and they fit wonderfully now. Love these boots.
I wear size 11D , which is what I ordered and they were perfect. I can not say how other sizes are in regards to being true to size. Great boots!
They are medium width.
The sizing shown is US men's sizes.
