Boot was comfortable from the start. No break in needed. This is my second pair, still working on my first which I have had for 2 years. Just want a pair to have as back up so I don't have to hunt for them when I wear out the first. My size and width make it harder to find shoes that fit me correctly. I am very hard on my footwear and need it to perform. A little warm in the summer but the low boot style helps with that.

Shoes are very comfy and true to size; however, the eyelets for the laces are very poor quality and low grade to the point than when lacing the shoes and tying the metal eyes fall off. Very cheap quality products used and not built to last. Would not recommend this shoe because of the poor quality and lack of attention to detail on the most important part for keeping your shoe on your foot.

More than I'm used to spending but well worth it. Most comfortable ankle top shoes I've owned, with excellent tread.

By far, the best all around travel boot I have tried in 6 years. The Drew Rockford is extremely comfortable and seems very well built. I haven\'t had them very long, but the only way I see any of the hardware popping off is if you tie your laces with crack-strength. This boot is on a whole other level when compared to Keens. I wish Drew made more non-nursing-home-styled shoes.

My spouse purchased a pair of business casual shoes by Drew to take on a recent vacation to Israel and Turkey; we did lots of walking, and the shoes were very comfortable, durable, and looked great. He wanted a pair of boots to use when hunting (here in Texas he hunts dove and quail) and when exercising our three hunting dogs. He loves the Drew boots; they are wide in the toe bed, accommodate this orthotics, and have a steel shank (something the foot doctor said was helpful for persons who have had painful foot issues). While they are rather expensive, they seem to be very worth the money.

Brands I'd also recommend: My husband also has a pair of Danner boots that have Thinsulate and Gore-tex, making them good for cold and wet hunting situations.

I was looking for a pair or boots that I could use for light hiking and hunting. I have a size 13 extra wide (EEE) foot and also use arch supports in my shoes so I need a full EE or 4E width. I tried to find a high quality major brands like Danner and Asolo, but Zappos doesn't sell Danner and the Asolo brand was not wide enough. So I had to look for another brand that would suit my needs. In terms of these boots, these are not as stiff a boot as a Asolo. They are more of a comfort boot. The soles claim to be made of a slip resistant material that is oil resistant, though I have not had the opportunity to test them. If you are looking for a true hiking boot and don't have an overly wide foot like mine, I would try the Asolo brand over this. I did go hunting with these boots and my feet stayed warm and comfortable. For what I got, I think these boots should be less expensive, but with a wide foot my options were limited.

This is a great boot but overpriced. They lasted me one year before they started to split. Also the shoe lace eyes left rust marks on all my work pants. I'd buy them and do modifications but not for the price set now.

I bought the Rockford because in my size 15EEEE. If the Wolverine Rainier came in this size I would have bought it instead. Neither boot is perfect. Both are supposed to be waterproof and insulated. But the Rainier has Durashock bottom which is softer, whereas the Rockford's soles are stiff. Hitting the pavement isn't a problem but the foot doesn't bend. It is like walking on boards. The ankle is also stiff so it reduces your mobility. One advantage the Rockford has is its straight big toe, so that it doesn't pinch your toes. But with the straight toe you won't need to overcompensate and get a wider size. I could've done with a 15EE.

Boot fit okay, but my legs pain after about 5 minutes of walking. Hopefully it will get better as I break them in. Also the top grommet on the boot has fallen off! Again I am hopeful that the rest will remain fastened. I can't return the boots because Zappos does not have a replacement pair at this time.

Imagine my surprise to find a boot in my actual width! Not only that, but it is available through Zappos, not New Balance, which has been keeping me in freakishly wide shoes for more than a decade. But New Balance doesn't have boots in my true width. Zappos has my business for the rest of my life!

Horrible. They do not breathe whatsoever. By the end of a work day my feet are wrinkled like a prune as if I've been in a bathtub all day. Not real comfortable either. The leather is not durable at all, showing scuff marks immediately. The worst boots I've ever bought, and were as expensive as red wings. Do not buy these! I would buy another different pair of boots if I hadn't spent so much money on these and been broke from it. I just have to suffer now!

If you have a wide foot and toe room is important to you, then these are unquestionably the shoes for you. Expensive? Yes! But what is foot comfort worth to you? The quality of the product is top-notch in very aspect; and the styling is very good for a shoe whose goal is clearly stated (and delivered) as comfort.

This is the second pair that I am wearing for work. The first pair are now my Yard shoes. I just recieved my third pair so I can have them on hand in case I need them. Talk about backing yourself up. These shoes don't have to be broken in and I can go all day in them. They are little warm in the summer. My first pair lasted 2 years and still have life in them for working in the yard.
