Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lynn from North Carolina on Tuesday, July 4, 2017This was a gift so unable to help but fit was as expected. It was received in a very timely way!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cottin from California on Thursday, May 25, 2017This boot is pretty good. I usually wear an 11.5 but I went up a half a size after reading comments that they run a little small. I found that with regular socks they do feel a little loose but thicker socks fills them out nicely. I wore them all weekend working on a steep hill and had no problems with grip. Good boot at a great price
Verified Buyer Reviewed by drjac from az on Saturday, April 22, 2017The length was good, but then it got wide in the weirdest way. They are being shipped back as I write this.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Wayne from New York on Wednesday, April 19, 2017I am in the process of breaking these in. So far I am pleased with the shoe.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by T from Saint Louis on Monday, March 27, 2017So far so good with these boots. Leather design seems good but in a little concerned with where the upper meets the soul.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by oc_desertwalker from Northern New Mexico on Monday, February 13, 2017This is a well built boot, especially in light of the great price. Very good quality single piece main leather body being what I most appreciated. Because I know that makes for a very durable boot. The size runs large which was a relief for me, but there is one fatal flaw. The tongue, at the top end, is insufficiently wide for it to fall under the lacing hook features. This put a painful pressure point on my ankles. This was a show stopper for me so I returned the boots
Verified Buyer Reviewed by TedT from Garfield Hts., Oh. on Thursday, January 12, 2017bought for my grandson. He likes the fit & the fact their waterproof. says there comfortable. seems like good quality.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Paperswimmer from VA on Tuesday, December 27, 2016Not sure how other people walk in hiking boots like this, but the soles are so stiff there was no way my son could have worn them. The best I can do to compare is to imagine dansko clogs if they didn't have the rocking motion. So, if that means comfort for you, great shoes, otherwise not a good choice. Will return.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Charlie from Colorado from Colorado on Thursday, November 24, 2016I have put about 30 or 35 miles on these boots so far. Obviously I like them.
The fit and sizing are spot on. I always order hiking shoes a size up from my street shoe size. These fit exactly as I would expect a size 13 to fit me.
They were comfortable right out of the box, and there was never any pinching, rubbing or hotspots. They feel natural and comfortable and stable while walking in them.
Like any leather boot, you should expect a bit of a break in period. But it was easy with these boots. The ankles felt a bit stiff at first, but they softened up quickly. They never caused any pain or discomfort.
I especially like the roomy and protective toe box. One of the most important elements of a good hiking boot, IMO.
I also like the outsole design. The big wide lugs put a lot of rubber on the road, especially in the all-important heel-strike zone. These soles are clearly designed for long mileage and durability over maximum traction. I'll take that trade-off any time.
One potential weak point is the all-fabric tongue. I know that there is supposed to be a waterproof membrane in there, but there is also a lot of stitching which could -eventually- create an entry point for water. My solution was to apply a generous amount of Nikwax waterproofing paste wax to the fabric tongue and stitching as well as to the leather and other fabric panels on the boot. They are totally waterproof now - we'll see how long it lasts. I expect that they will be fine.
Bottom line: these are comfortable, sturdy, functional, no-nonsense boots at an attractive price. Recommended!
