Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jaxhelax from Alabama on Tuesday, August 15, 2017Very comfortable and great workmanship, light, and the price was great for this much quality... Great sole cushion also for hiking, backyard workouts and pounding the pavement, and even running...

Verified Buyer Reviewed by None from Washington on Sunday, June 25, 2017By the second time I put the boots on the top lace hook just popped out. Too dirty to return and desperately in need of these new boots now I have made it work and didn't try to warranty them. But yea, maybe I got a poorly made one. The green "flare" on the side also doesn't do anything except fall off so you might as well just rip it off at home so it doesn't fall off in the woods and further destroy the planet. Not too impressed with Kayland shoes... They are light however. If you are looking for a light boot with good support (until the lace hooks fall off) then look no further.
Great hiking shoe/boot. Although I don't use them for hiking,I work on Cell phone towers and they work even better on the tower. Only one little complaint with the shoe is the pull ring on the back to help when putting on the show. It could be better supported so it don't tear.Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mark (waldo) from Pittsburgh on Tuesday, May 23, 2017Awesome boot and flashy I would definitely buy another pair
Reviewed by pnyhkr from PNW on Saturday, August 13, 2016Boots performed well on a 16 mile overnight backpacking trip. I was carrying a 30 lb pack and hiked w/ ease on these boots. No hot spots and lock lacing is a plus. I love how light they are and has enough sole support to tackle any type of trail as long as you are not carrying too heavy loads. Kayland makes some the of the best boots in the market.
Reviewed by BennyG from Pa on Wednesday, June 29, 2016I wanted to love these boots but I don't. They give me rubs in too many places. On the heal they gave me small blisters and on the toe by sock seam the gortex lining irritates my toes. I have worn them for about a week. The first day I could only do a few hours with them and have been increasingly wearing them longer. I was hoping the toe iriation would go a way but it has not.
I am a horse farmer and horse riding instructor that walks for many miles a day on un even ground and trails and need a sturdy and light boot. These fit bill except for the annoying rubs. These are the first boots in about dozen pairs of Asolo's, Aku, Merrils and Keens that have given me this problem.
The shoe looks great. My feet stay cool. They are water proof. They are very light with good padding and support. They are bit wider then Asolo's and Aku's but pretty true to size.
I am hoping that the rubbing issue improves and if it does I'll give five stars. If not, I will still keep em and I will try another model of Kaylands before I dismiss this brand and go back to Asolo's.
