Felt a bit tight when my husband first tried them on, which is why I rated them as "feeling narrower than marked". But...after just a few minutes walking in them, they felt so comfortable he knew he'd keep them instantly. DH uses orthotics, so can't comment on arch support. Used primarily for snowshoeing. They're typical GTX near-100% waterproof, lightweight (despite 'heavy,clunky' appearance). DH takes 12Xwide and size was right on. Side zip makes boot feel extra secure, too.

I'd also recommend: Merrell, North Face, Nike, Fila

Overall, I was very pleased with these boots. Durable, great for long shifts, and easy to get on and off quickly. The only negative is that they do seem to run a bit narrow!

Not for wide feet if your feet swell. Size is true. Not very insulated for Chicago winters. If your feet sweat consider other options. This boot isn't a true winter/cold weather boot. Outside of that it's a great everyday boot for temps above 40 to 70 degrees.

Great boot. I work in the Auto Repair business & they have kept my feet warm & dry this winter. They are a higher boot than I normally wear but I wanted to keep the snow out. They are light & like the side zippers. Still have to untie the top, but makes them easy to put on & take off. I wear a 14 wide & can never find my size in stores. Plan on using Zappos again.

I ordered these boots and had to send them back because they did not have the composite toe. While other versions of the GX-8 is sold as a composite toe, this version is not. Just reviewing to make sure someone does not make the same mistake I did.
