    REI Members get back an estimated $ 13.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Rated5out of5byfromAwesome Hiking BootsI bought these boots one week before backpacking the Grand Canyon. They broke in in no time, and they were amazing during my trip. Highly recommended.

    Rated5out of5byfromLike walking on a cloudI generally wear another brand of hikers and originally intended to buy the other brand, but when I tried on this pair of Patagonia hikers I didn't want to take them off! I did try on a pair of the other brand as well, and they just didn't have the same level of comfort. This is the first pair of hikers I've had that were trail ready right at purchase . . . no breaking in period! I love them!

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat show, but...I love Patagonia's business ethics so want to support them whenever possible. However, I have boxy feet and have an extremely hard time finding shoes that fit well. And true to form these hikers were still too narrow in the toe box, rubbing my little toes immediately. In the short time I wore them, however, they felt firm, supportive and durable. I give them a 4 because the issue is with the shape of my foot, not the shoe.

    Rated5out of5byfromMost comfortable hiking shoesI need a wide, rounded toe box and narrow heel and these shoes fit the bill perfectly. I did substitute a pair of SuperFeet for the original insoles to get more arch support and ensure the middle of foot was snug in shoe. They have been super comfortable for me -- lightweight, not hot, and no pressure points at all.

    Rated4out of5byfromCOmfy and lightweightMy only complaint is the stiffness cause my feet to ache later after an entire day working in the desert. But much more comfortable than most hikers. I also like supporting Patagonia

    Rated5out of5byfromComfortable out of the boxI had been hiking in Merrell Moab Ventilators with wool crew socks for years. The Merrells were comfortable, but squishy, and my feet would get very tired. An REI saleswoman suggested that a stiffer sole might help, and my feet said yes (sized up a half size) to these Patagonias. I am old enough to have learned to let my feet choose my shoes, regardless of appearance, price, color, etc. The Patagonias feel similar to my old shoes - wide toe box, lots of padding around the heel, mesh to help heat escape - but they are all-around firmer, in a good way. My feet are very insulated from the trail, but not so much that I can't feel what's underneath me. Considering the amount of boot-like support, they are very light. Traction is excellent on slopes with loose gravel. I took them on a few short hikes with my same wool socks. No problems. Now I'm doing longer hikes. Happy feet. Of course everyone's feet are different, but these shoes are a good match for mine.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat shoes!Recently began hiking as a supplement to my swim workout. Discovered that tennis shoes did not cut it, so went to REI in Saratoga. Great help from Nathan in narrowing it down to two shoes, of which Patagonia won!
