The shoelace pocket in the tongue was pretty cool discovery since the laces do hang a little bit on to the ground. The laces stuffed in the pocket makes the tongue look funky but neat and novel feature. The foot bed is very supportive. With vibrant soles you can't go wrong.

Shoes looked cute but were too narrow and my little toe stuck out. Also, the worst part, was that the strap that would not adjust hurt the top of my foot. I have a very high instep.

I bought these for my son and they ran a whole size larger. He usually wears a size 10 and had to exchange for a size 9. Zappos has a great and easy return policy. I sent the size 10 back and received the size 9 pair in 2 days. Love Zappos! They make buying shoes simple and easy. It is exciting to receive the shoes in 2 days rather than waiting a week or so with other companies.

I've had these shoes for about a month and so far they're great. I bought them for running and casual hiking. They're quite light, and the top part is mostly mesh, so they breathe well. I would prefer it if the sole had a little more grip to it, but I think unless you were really walking on something slippery it probably wouldn't be a problem. I've been taking them hiking twice a week and they're holding up really well!

These sandals are the bomb. I normally just use them for camping and fishing in Georgia, but most recently was in Maui on an unexpectedly difficult hike in the rain at O'heo gorge up to Waimoku falls. Had to stop and tighten the straps, but they delivered me through some scary (crazy cliffs nearby) trekking straight up the mountain for 2 miles. Just purchased another pair for my daughter in hopes that I can get her to hang with Mom on some adventures! Other than a rock concert. Kudos to hi-tech!

The front straps are not adjustable and are a little wide. I needed sandals quickly for a last minute trip, or I might have returned these because of the wide width. They are fairly comfortable for walking. Bought a different brand while traveling which has all adjustable straps & I like that fit better.

This is a horrible shoe. My husband wore these for less than 3 months and one of the lace holders already ripped off so the boots are useless. Never buying this brand again!

Excellent comfort, support and style. Wore these for 16 days straight right out of the box working music festivals. I estimate these boots walked about 500 miles in mountainous terrain and varying weather conditions within their first two weeks. They owe me nothing and they're still only a few weeks old. Felt snug at first, but wore in to a perfect fit after only a few hours.

Hiking in Grand Tetons and Yellowstone Parks. Boots are very comfortable and good traction for climbing.

Surprisingly too large given that I ordered a very similar sandal from the same company and that one was fine. The toe straps were too loose. Since I'm a 5, I can't size down. Returned.

Returned: The toe strap is sadly way too far towards the toe and cuts diagonally. My smallest toe ends up not being under/past the strap - big problem. The middle crossed straps were too tight (and can't adjust). Otherwise, they were true to size, nice colors, and had arch support.

I love these shoes! They look elegant on top but have a comfortable, sport-type bottom. The two adjustable velcro straps mean you can get them to fit right for your feet. They run wide, which is good for my feet.

These shoes are a godsend for my 9-year old daughter, who has wide feet and a high instep. I can't tell you how many sandals I have tried, to no avail. Not even Tevas or Chacos fit her. So frustrating and sad when you go store to store, website to website, and can not find something to fit your little girl. Thankfully we are at the point where she can wear a size 5 in women's shoes. Even though these ones are not marked as wide width, they fit her perfectly. I can actually buy her true shoe size rather than going up a size or two.

These are great boots, they are light weight enough to not wipe you out wearing them, but tough enough to handle serious hiking. I wore them on a 9 hour trek in Norway and had no problems.

The soles have worn through at about 8 months. Shame as the rest of the boot is still in fine shape and they were very comfortable. I'm not an avid hiker and used them mainly at work with minimal abuse. Purchased in October to replace a pair of Altitudes and was expecting similar durability. I got a couple years out of the Altitudes.

These shoes are fine if you are walking on paved or dirt trails. If you are going to be walking on rocky trails, forget it. You can feel every rock and pebble through the sole. They are lightweight and comfortable enough, but like I said, not for terrain.

I don't know what that WP stands for, but these are definitely not waterproof. Not even close. Good, comfortable boots aside from that.

I've previously had two pair of Hi-Tec Sierra Lites. Each lasted me at least 5 years. I started wearing the Flagstaff WPs in early October 2013, and based on sole wear, I'll be lucky to get much more than 18 months out of these. The waterproofing gave up the ghost after about 6 months, so walking in wet grass results in soggy socks. The soles also have a lot of small grooves and crevices, making it impossible to thoroughly clean mud and gunk off of them. They fit well and are comfortable, just don't seem as long-lasting as other Hi-Tec boots I've worn.

Really like these! I have already hiked in them a couple times, and I did not get blisters. I find them to be comfortable. I also like the brown color because they mask dirt well.

Zappos always ships these very quickly. My husband has rods & screws in his one leg and is on his feet all day, these boots are great for him. We've been buying them for 4 years now and can't complain about the comfort and quality!
