by HimalafromAnkle bruiserI really like this boot in every respect but one: it is extremely hard and stiff around the ankles. I walked in them for 3 hours in the city. The last hour was so painful that I had to completely untie the laces. The next day my ankles had dark bruises. I will try to give them another chance by walking shorter distances for a while and hope that they become a bit softer.

by NataliyafromI wish they were warmerWell, understand when the description says that the temperature ratings depend on the physical activities, however, assume that it is impossible not to have even a few minutes stop when hiking for 4 hours or so. With all that the Temp was 33F and the hike was a slow pace, after 2 hours my toes got cold and in another hour it was pretty uncomfortable. I have to return these boots. Too bad, for it seems that it was a lot of expensive material used for making them.

by 4MLA4DfromTo be tested soonI'll soon be testing these boots for 10 days in Colorado and hope they'll perform as good as they look and feel. Love the lighter weight combined with all the performance and design features. Looking forward to spending some serious time in them and hope they'll be up to the task.

by Women HunterfromI am very happy with these boots.I purchased these boots to try because I do a lot of winter hiking and bird hunting. I have worn them daily inside and outside since I bought them a month or so ago. My feet have been warm and comfortable in every temperature from 40 F to 0 F.
I have hiked on steep rocky slopes in dry, wet and snowy conditions and they have held me securely on the hills. I am quite happy with them.

by C-RockfromWarm and comfortable.I was up in the Pocono mountains this weekend where the temperature dropped down to about 10 degrees Farenheit most nights. I had on a pair of lightweight wool socks and the only part of my body that was NOT cold, were my feet. The break in period was rough and I was uncomfortable for the first week or so, but now that they are broken in, the are absolutely fantastic. A lot of women go for appearance over performance, which is unfortunate. These boots are awesome.

by chik on wheelsfromExcellent PurchasePurchased these boots as a replacement for a pair of Cabela's Snow Runners that were giving me heel blisters when used for hiking and snowshoeing.
Out of the box these were fairly comfortable but stiff. I bought a 7-1/2 (usual size) and an 8 and decided to keep the 8.
Unsure if they'd need breaking in, I decided the the first time wearing them would be at an cold outdoor sporting event where I did more walking and standing than hiking. They did feel stiff and tight across the ball of my foot but kept my feet warm and dry in 30/40 degree temps and wet grass.
Took them on a long weekend hiking trip to really put them to the test. Hiked on rocks, loose dirt, wet leaves and grass. Temps in the 40s. Kept my feet warm and dry. Grip could have been a bit better on rocks, but I don't believe that's what these were designed for. They seemed to "break in" quickly and after about 40 minutes no longer felt restrictive - no numbness, no blisters.
Look forward to using them in the snow sometime soon.
Fantastic sale price at REI, these are a great investment.

by USHelvetiafromMy "difficult" feet love them!Background: I have problem feet and mostly wear Earth (now Kelso Earth) shoes. Was very reluctant to try another brand, as I do not want my foot pain to return. Usually, I would order one size up with this type of shoe to allow for thick socks. Since Size 10 was no longer available, I went to a REI store in CT and tried a Size 9 1/2. Perfect. Purchased them on the spot and wore tham anywhere from Manhattan to the Lincoln National Forest (New Mexico), where I hike. I like the thick, relatively stiff sole as it protects my tender feet. The temperatures here have not been much lower than 18 degrees this winter. My feet have always been warm and dry, even without warm socks. My ankles are well supported, the soles grip well (alas there is no shoe, which doesn't slip on solid ice). Not a single blister yet. Since the price has been lowered again, I have decided to order a second pair. My feet may never be so comfortable again...
