I have a very narrow foot and only order narrow shoes. I ordered one style of Lowa that came in narrow and this style. They both felt the same in the width but this style felt like walking on air! It is extremely lightweight. They fit like a glove, are made very well, and I'm anticipating they wear well. I haven't worn them yet except around the house because I bought them for an upcoming trip to Iceland and Norway where we'll be hiking quite a bit. I'm very happy with the purchase even though they were pricey!

Great Company, comfortable shoe, very well crafted..the wide width available in this shoe sold it. I can adjust for sock thickness and comfort as needed. Boots provide good ankle support. I can also add an orthotic insert. Well worth the price.

I had a broken Fibula fixed (with metal fixation bar) because I wiped out on my scooter, in China. After 8 weeks recovery I talked my doctor (in Ohio) into letting me switch to a soft ankle brace and these boots. They are very comfortable to wear for long periods. I have bought many hiking boots in my life. These seem the most comfortable fit and yet have good support. I will return to China soon and be wearing these boots along side many Chinese workers, riding to work in their sandals. Ha ha ha

For me the 10 felt like a 9.5 and the 10.5 an 11.. It was weird, you could see and feel a huge difference between the two. Odd considering they were only a 1/2 size difference. (and yes I confirmed the size, boot and box) I went with the 10.5 and black Montrail inserts. So far so good. Good ankle support. Good lacing system. No hot spots. I am amazed tho how high end/$ boot makers ship there boots with such crappy insoles. Maybe they assume you are going to immediately upgrade and for them it's not a concern and less of an expense ?

Most comfortable shoes ever! I expected them to be stiff and uncomfortable at first but they were firm yet wearable right away. They're worth every penny- comfortable, durable and waterproof!

This is a solid hiking shoe, well made and sturdy. But I have wide feet and even the wide size ran narrow for me. The toe box is almond shaped, so this shoe will work better for people with narrower feet.

I'm new to hiking but just retired so finally have time to do so many things I've always wanted to do. I read quite a lot online, especially Hiking Lady. Who has quite a bit to say about narrow feet, which I have. I wore these inside my house for one day, decided they did seem to fit, then put them back in the box and debated for 2 months. I finally wore them out of the house on a cold, very rainy day. What fun to be able to slosh through mud and puddles! I've worn them on hikes quite a few times, wearing toe socks plus thick socks. No blisters, no painful spots. In this newbie's opinion, they're great!

Good, sturdy boot. Fits well. Arch, however, is almost flat. I'll have to buy inserts to get proper arch support.

I LOVE this boot! I've hiked for 40 years and this is the best boot I have ever owned. I don't lace the pair of eyelets in the corners (3 from the top) due to chronic sensitivity on my ankle bones. This boot required no break-in time! Great support! I haven't yet used these on a wilderness hike but have hiked lots of city miles which I think can be even harder on my feet due to walking on the pavement. No issues! I do use an additional shoe insert (Goodfeet) Bonus that it is NOT made in China!

I know these are expressive, but I hike a lot and have had five foot surgeries. I'm a disabled veteran. These are the most comfortable boots I have.

LOVE THESE BOOTS. Used these boots on a week long hike on the Appalachian trail. To be honest, I didn't break them in at all (dumb I know) but they worked out perfectly, no blisters or sore feet at all!

Lovely shoe but too large in the toe box and my heel slipped out the back, even with orthotics tucked in.

Runs small. Cloth laces are somewhat difficult to secure to upper hooks when lacing. Shoes squeak when walking.

Great, stylish boot. I had two consecutive pairs of Merrells that had an eyelet rip out while hiking the JMT. Those were 15's and these are 15's. Both fit me well! These seem sturdier than the Merrell's--more durable material and more bulky too. But not bad bulky. The color is on point. I got black and blue laces. All black shoe with bright blue laces, what the heck! Can't say if the black is hot as I've only had in winter conditions. Don't have much experience with these but I've walked around the block and they were very comfortable for that. Boots are always tricky.

So everything that you have read about the boot being small is true. I generally wear an 11D in most shoes, 11.5 in running shoes. I ordered 12 based on reviews. At first sight, fell in love with the boot. Put them on and was immediately disappointed, too tight. Length is about right. Loosened the laces, a little better. Wore around on the carpet. Resolved myself that I would have to send them back and get a refund as there are no widths available. Hated the idea cause they look good. Decided to pull the insole out. Pulled insole out of both boots. They fit perfect. Have worn for several days and they feel great. Great walking the line all day on concrete and grass. Love 'em. For the price just wish they would offer some widths.

Love the look of this shoe, but the 8.5 is too large and the 8 is too tight on the sides of the ball of my foot. Wish they had a wide width in this shoe. Too bad I have to return it.

These run small. Would be very comfortable with the correct size fit.

Nice boots! Great fit once I found the proper insoles to complement them. No break in required. I hiked nearly 11 miles in them up Mt. Leconte in the GSMNP straight out of the box. Can't comment on durability as I've only had them two weeks. Initially I was sent the wrong size but called Zappos incredible customer service department who sent the correct size boots the next day. Truly the great customer service. Thanks Zappos!!

I find this runs a little small, 7.5 too small for my normally 7.5 foot, so got an 8, which I find a tad large, using insert to address issue. I like my hiking boots snug without too much extra toe room. Love these otherwise, good arch support and stylish, warm and have kept me dry. Happy with purchase, anticipate using these for years of birding and hiking, justifying the very high price.

I am a female with a wide foot. I tried the Renegade in a D width and it was not wide enough. I tried the men's EE width and it was perfect. However, the men's version is made with a taller boot and it put the top part of the boot in a very uncomfortable place above my ankle. Returning, but I sure do wish I could have made it work.
