This is a light-duty hiking boot, based on the design of the upper. The sole is stiff, as expected for a good hiking boot. I returned it because it's not what I want. This is an alternative to a Merrel Moab, except it will accommodate a wider foot.

The back of the heel is rock hard, no padding whatsoever. It is not bad for walking around on flat surfaces but if you are going up even a slight incline it will rub you raw. I called and complained and they just said to wear them in. 40 miles later and I am still experiencing the same problem.

I'd also recommend: Keen, Scarpa, Merrell

This boot's a great choice for anyone who has a wide foot in the ball area, but narrower in the heel, as it tapers rather than having the more boxy shape common in American hiking footwear. Boxier shoes may require more cushioning in the hell to approximate a good fit, but in reality that cushioning just gives and rubs, producing blisters on the heels anyway. Due to the great fit the tapered shape allows, excessive cushioning isn't necessary, and I've not experienced any rubbing of my heel from slip, even when traversing quite severe inclines. A pair of good quality light to med weight hiking socks are all the cushioning one needs with these. The sole is stiff, but not annoyingly such that it impedes the natural flex in your foot that helps steady on looser trails and rocks. The upper is designed such that the more flexible material is in the areas where the boot needs to flex with the natural movement while hiking like above the toes.
