I wish I got the boots everyone else loves. How do you people love these? On the positive side they are in fact waterproof as tested. After day one of hiking (12km) I thought these are a solid 2.5, mostly because they are WIDE. I have average to maybe narrow feet and these are just too wide, I figure I could put some insoles in to try to snug them up a little and deal. But day two 12 mm in to a 18km hike I wanted to rip them off, throw them at the designer, and hike barefoot. The huge issue (other then the heel not being cushiony enough) was the collar of the boot. It's hard to tell in the pics but the tongue at the collar of the boot is a completely separate piece sewed on. Which means there are some THICK seams on the ankle of the boot which therefore jam into my ankles the entire time. My ankle is bruised badly and I barely ever bruise. I am super disappointed in these, especially since I can't return these now and I can't afford a new pair. I hike for work so it's pretty crucial for me to have a decent pair of boots.
