Fairly lightweight hiking boots. They won't need much break-in time. Be aware they ran pretty much a full size small- I wear a 10.5, and finally settled on an 11.5. Sturdy lug sole.

The material used was lighter than I expected and durability will be a question for me. I used them on two 3 hour hikes so far and they performed very well. I would buy again.

Cool stylish boot. Very comfortable. Waterproof. Pretty warm even in -20F weather. I wouldn't wear them to Pluto but these boots are all you need for everything on Earth except the Poles maybe.

Great boots so far! They are comfortable, lightweight, flexible, and keep my feet warm. I will say that they run a true full size small. I read the reviews of others stating this and ordered a half and full size bigger. I usually wear a 10.5 and went with a 11.5.

Looks great, feels great. Ordered them to my size and they were snug for the first few day but broke in perfectly. I usually buy insoles for all my shoes but with these there's no need to. Great buy.

These boots offer excellent flexibility in the ankle while maintaining a sturdy fit within the foot bed. I just walked and jogged five miles through up to 10 inches of snow and they remained dry and warm. This is the best combination of a sport shoe and a hiking boot that I've worn. It somehow combines an athletic feel with the warmth and support of a hiking boot. The out sole tread provides excellent grip on ice/slush/snow within the city and through city parks. One of the best design aspects of these boots is that they're not too tight in the forefoot. Many boots I've worn are too tight in this area and my feet have become cold quickly in boots with a tight fore foot design. Essentially, if you're looking for light, flexible, warm boots that offer excellent tread on snow and ice then these are a sweet choice. I've worn them for one week, every day, so I can't speak yet to their long-term durability but I've inspected them carefully and they appear to be well-made throughout.

I get compliments from this shoe. They are very soft and warm. Super cool looking. They are slightly overpriced and I don't expect them to last longer than a few seasons. But they are really cool. I wear 9 in Vans and got 9 in these, they fit great.

Brands I'd also recommend: Clarks, vans

Lighter than I would have expected. I have taken them on one short hiking expedition (5 miles) and they held up great. The material looks a little light too.

Looks great but too small. I wear a 12, ordered a 12.5, and have to return it for a 13!

I have had these boots for a year and while I love the look, fit and feel I was disappointed with the quality. The sole in the rear started separating in a couple months with just light outdoor use. I used some goop to glue it back together and it is holding up okay, but now the other sole is coming apart. I will be gooping that one soon. I expected a little more out of such expensive boots. They do look sharp though, especially love the red laces. And they are warm and cozy as well. I just wish they were better made.

Pluses: Great style, waterproof, good traction (at first), really warm. Minuses: Not sturdy enough for hard terrain or long miles, soles wear out quickly, not breathable and really warm - so your feet can get pretty sweaty in there. Overall: Great style for kicking around town, and very comfy in cold weather. They're just not hiking boots, so wearing them when it's warm out is a bad idea, and the wear out pretty quickly.
