Sizing was small for me. I ended up going a full size larger. I bought these to trek Kilimanjaro. I didn't want a shoe w/a full ankle as I wouldn't ever wear it again, and this style is more up my alley for non-Kili use. Could not have been happier with the performance of the shoe. It stayed dry in the wet/rain, was comfortable the whole time, and gave great traction up and down. Fellow trekkers gave the open ankle questioning looks, but it worked great for me, just sayin'. The hike really put these through the ringer, and they came out on top (no pun intended)- a big time 5 stars.

I wrote a review earlier and said that these were a size smaller than marked, but after wearing them around the apartment for a little while the insole molded to my foot, and the tightness turned into a great fit.

I'd also recommend: Merrel, Adidas, Innov-8

I am simply amazed with this shoe or rather short hiking boot. I have worn Patagonia hiking socks for years now (an absolutely awesome sock; they also last forever) and after seeing that the Patagonia Drifter A/Cs received the 2010 Outside Gear of the Year Award I decided to give them a try. Wow! Absolutely no break-in period for me; super comfortable; discreet; and well made. These shoes are indeed tough as nails and they do appear to be really holding up to the Afghan environment. As a High-Risk Close Protection Officer I am on my feet constantly. In our trade besides ones eyes one also needs to take very good care of their feet. So I have never skimped on buying the best quality footwear, socks, and sunglasses available. These shoes are definitely worth every penny I spent on them - I will continue to stick with Patagonia for shoes and of course their wonderful socks. I had to return the first pair I ordered and get a size bigger... they ran a little small for me.

I initially ordered a 10.5 which was tight all the way around. The size 11 felt good. The quality of materials and workmanship seem very good. The shoe is very comfortable when walking around all day. I have not carried a load with them yet but plan to use them for day hikes. I would recommend them.

This is a terrific shoe that performs just as advertised. I have been wearing these shoes for about two months now and put over 50 miles on them walking and hiking. They needed only a minimal break-in period and have proven to be very comfortable. They really are water-proof, breathe well and are very comfortable even in hot weather. Some reviews have claimed that they are slippery on wet surfaces - I have not found that to be the case at all, in fact just the opposite. I would highly recommend them to anyone; and as for the Zappos' service, it cannot be beat.
