    Used these for a trail day hike (5.5 hours) and got blisters afterwards. Pretty sturdy, needs aftermarket insoles. Could be ok.

    I bought these as casual everyday shoes I could wear to the barn or through mild snow falls and slushy conditions. I took them hunting as 'car/travel' shoes. Ended up wearing them during mostly warm (mid 50-60's day time, mid 20's night) when my regualr all condition boots needed insoles. These worked well in all but the most snowy/muddy conditions. Those are the conditions that only 'round nipple' soles work well in (the kind that the better hunting and pack boots have). Very impressed as the price is good. They may need some corn starch in them occasionally, as they seemed to smell up a bit after a few days of full day wear and hiking in a row.

    I have only worn them a few weeks, so can't comment on wear. They seemed wide in the toe box, and I have high instep. All was well. I have narrow heels, so no issues there for me. Plenty roomy. Light on the legs after wearing all day hiking with a medium pack.

    Hard to find a mid hiker in this price range that is both insulated and waterproof. These boots are comfortable from the beginning.

    Seems like it will be a good hiker for trail and winter walker. The traction is good and the boot is warm. It may be to warm for the summer not sure yet. Good fit from the box, I like 10.5 for hiker, all they had was 10 and it was good. Only complaint so far is when I pulled on the tounge pull strap it came right off clean. My guess is a manufacture stitch point was missed, not enough to go through sending them back ... yet.
