Just to qualify my statements; I have spent the last 20+ years in the military (infantry based), law enforcement and private security (currently in Afghanistan). That being said, I have also hiked the Rockies (both the Canadian and US), Appalachians and mountains in Asia. I have owned Lowas, Meindls, Asolos, Salomons, Keens, Merrills, and several other boot and shoe makes. Pros: extremely light weight, stiff ankle support for such a light weighted boot; nice non-marking sole with good traction; nice bump-kick toe lip,fully gusseted tongue; good looks Cons: foot bed is a bit stiff/flat and feels abit like wearing flat dress shoes with leather soles. the eyelets and lace material don't afford easy lacing or tightening/cinching of the boot. Comments: the boot is exactly 1/2 size smaller in size than what the tag reads. Size 10 US in these boots fit exactly like a 9.5 US in Salomon, Merrill, Keen, New Balance etc... I will most likely replace the insole with a more supportive one as I can tell from my short time wearing these that any walks over 1-2 kms would begin to become a bit uncomfortable (especially wearing any amount of kit). For standing about for short periods or for short jaunts they are adequate. I love Lowas, but sense they spent a bit more on the outside of this boot than they did the inside and the result somewhat impairs the feel of the fit. For how much they look and feel in hand like a pair of high-top sneakers, they are surprisingly lacking the corresponding comfort. I still love the boot and will work on making it more comfortable -hopefully replacement soles will do just that.

I'd also recommend: Meindl, Asolo, Salomon, Keen

I am currently in military service in Afghanistan. These are too expensive for me to purchase, but I am deeply in love with them.

Very cool boot. Fits snugly and comfortably. Whatever size you wear in a dress shoe, order a full size up these boots. They run a half size larger than Ecco shoes.

I followed the advice of earlier reviewers and ordered a size larger (normally 11, ordered 12). It fit well. I wear a medium weight sock and it fit comfortably in both length and D width. Given the type of boot (semi-rigid, molded foot) and the batch at hand, the advice was sound. A very high quality boot. Perhaps one of the most comfortable I have owned in this class. Tread not too aggressive. Very tasteful, muted colors prevent you from looking like a carnival on the move. No regrets.
