Urban Tracks Hiker
I was prepared not to like these shoes thinking they would be to bulky and make my feet look huge or too masculine or too much like I was off to work construction (nothing wrong with that kind of work but I didn't want to look like that was where I was heading when I was out for a hike w my dog). However, when I tentatively opened the shoe box to peek inside - I was overjoyed with what I found. At last...the perfect combination of rugged and stylish! I loved the colors (white, black and yellow!)...and Ioved the rugged lug soul that wraps around the back of the heel and over the toes. But what I really liked...was the comfort from the moment I tried them on. Now I have to say there is a sort of weird 'strap' for lack of anything else to call it that wraps the sides of the shoe and I thought it was an after thought or an add on to keep the overly wide shoe in place and that it would bother the wearer and...would wear out and be more of a problem than an asset. However, what I found was that the elastic strap in there that hugs the outer edge on one side of my foot and the insoul on the other side of the foot...actually is like a snug 'hug' and it keeps the shoe snugged up to my foot in a way that makes it feel secure and "grippy" as I walk around the park or out on a trail...then I find myself wearing them the rest of the day forgetting to take them off ...when normally my feet would be sweaty and aching and begging for flip-flops or no shoes after a hike. I've had them for about a month and I wear them alot! So far, although still young, they look great and I still love em'. They are more expensive then I wanted to pay but I can see they will become my long time favorites and I'm hoping they remain on my feet for years to come! We do alot of hiking during Covid as it keeps us in fresh air and away from people. Highly recommend giving them a try!

great comfort and lightweight. but the sole wore a hole after 5 months of my son wearing them to work each day. He does walk a good bit but still think they should have worked out longer than this.

My only real complaint with this shoe is that it doesn’t really have any airflow. I’m assuming it’s largely due to the stain/scuff resistant material (which I haven’t really put to the test yet), but my feet can’t breathe at all in these. The lack of airflow definitely detracts from the overall comfort of the shoe, but it’s not a dealbreaker for me. I like that these shoes are lightweight and inexpensive compared to many other causal sneakers. If they really do prove to be somewhat stain resistant, then I’ll be even more pleased with this purchase. (For reference, I consistently wear a women’s size 11 and I got these in a 9. They’re okay with slightly thicker socks (I’ve been wearing them with regular Bombas), but think they’ll be a bit too loose if I wear anything thinner.)

Really strong nice looking boots, a little heavy, but to loose at the ankle. Try to walk in thick sticky mud and you loose them stuck in the mud.

Men's sizes are a good idea! Too bad the extra width, EE, was not available for women with really wide feet!

These were a nice pair of shoes, but it didn't have a lot of support. My feet still hurt.

Great shoe. Great price. Exactly what I was looking for.

Excellent light weight work/office shoe

Great hybrid shoe, good for the office but also good to be out on the field.

Very nice shoes but not upper leather!

Liked the boots and would have kept except that the right boot was close to a size narrower than the left! Tag had it marked as a 'M' but it must have been mismarked. Left boot fit fine. I am always square in 11M with Zappos products. First time I have encountered this problem.

Lightweight so I can walk much farther more easily. Excellent tread so great on trails, streets, wherever. Good looking for most occasions. Laces stay tied. All-around excellent boot/shoe. Five stars.

These slip ons are great for a wet climate. They are heavier than your feet expect them to be, and might require a little bit thicker sock since the inside is hard rubber (and unforgiving). But I have enjoyed wearing mine and I would buy them again. They look like they are holding up well also.

Surprisingly light weight. Feels like a good, dress-casual boot that can handle some rain. So lightweight I have trouble believing they'll last more than a year or so, but still a decent value.

My new favorite pair of shoes! Super comfortable. Light but sturdy. Looks great with pretty much anything casual. Very happy with the purchase.

They fit exactly as I expected they would. The length and width were as expected. The arch support could be higher for my taste (like Merrell). The color and style are excellent.

Has a great, classic "work boot" look but modern. Went a half size down and fits perfectly. Seems well made with a very grippy sole.

true to size.... wearing 8.5 on sneakers and ordered the same size on this shoes. Nice Arctic grip... looks really great for traction.

This shoe looks good and the fit is perfect. It was a little tight to start but after wearing for a whole day they fit fine.

"If you are in-between sizes, the brand recommends that you order a half size down." - great advice b/c I did just that and these fit great. Superior casual boot for the price. Does not feel heavy on the feet.

I bought these boots for my husband. After a weeks research, they were exactly what he was looking for- now we just need muddy / snowey weather to try them out. Very pleased with boots and they arrived sooner than expected.

The look and fit were as expected out of the box. They claim the shoes were made to be lightweight, flexible, and comfortable. I haven't had time to wear them much yet, but would say they are definitely very lightweight and as flexible as leather allows at this price. They are requiring some break-in time, but I think they will end up being a very good buy and a favorite casual boot for a long time.

Narrow in the toe bed area. I'm a 13 M width but a little too snug. I may try a wider width

These shows fit perfect! I am in love with the color, they go with all kinds of jeans, pants and shorts. These are definitely my new favorite pair of shoes!
