This is exactly what I wanted in a hiking boot -- super-comfortable and supportive right out of the box, and not so goofy looking that I feel compelled to change footwear before being seen in public. Let's face it, most hiking boots are hideous. I bought these boots in gray, and they look similar to my old New Balance sneakers. No problem wearing them anywhere. I'm also not someone who can buy a big, stiff, heavy boot and then follow the advice that the boots will "break in" over time. Sorry, but I'm just not that dedicated to hiking. These come just over the ankle for support without immobilizing the whole lower leg like some boots. I usually wear an 8D but bought an 8EE based on reviews. The extra width is a treat. A+

I really loved these boots...at first! I was coming out of foot surgery and also trying to adjust to my first pair of orthotics and these were very comfy right out of the box. They were waterproof yet my feet stayed relatively cool even as Texas heated up this summer. I wore them for work (search & rescue for lost pets)about twice a week for 3-4 hours each time. It was all happiness until the waterproofing failed. I'd been wearing them for about 7 months when my feet started getting wet. At first I thought it might just be a buildup of moisture from sweaty feet. But yesterday I brought them into the house and ran some water over the toe box. Within seconds, my hand (inside the shoe) was wet. When I contacted Zappos today (less than 9 months after buying the boots) the rep gave me a guilt trip about returning something that's really only meant to "last for 6-9 months." Really? 6-9 months for sturdy boots that cost this much? He did ultimately offer a refund or exchange, but I'm not one to take something that the company feels I'm not entitled to, so I'll just keep them for dry walks I guess. Bottom line: if you need waterproof boots, try something else...maybe Keens.

I really like these boots. It has a "rocking" motion (similar to Dansko shoes) that took a bit of getting used to. My orthotics fit in the Wide Width with room to spare. My only quibble is that the fabric of the tongue has to bunch up when laces are tightened. It's not uncomfortable but it makes it a little harder to get the laces around the top set of speed lugs.

This shoe is very stiff over the forefront and the vertical room for toes is not nearly enough for my comfort. I am still searching for a light-weight trail shoe with ankle support that will fit narrow feet, but my Lowa boots are far superior. Compared to my Brooks running shoes, these are shorter and wider.

The toe box has way too much room. I am very fussy about my shoe/boot fit and generally don't write a review because I have such a hard time with a fit, but these are just too uncomfortable. I also had a hard time lacing the top of the boot so I could tie it.
