Rated1out of5byfspandorffromProof is in the usingI purchased these boots to walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain. All kinds of terrain up and down mountains on dirt, roads and slippery rocky paths.The boots begain by feeling great. They broke in quickly and felt worthy of taking on this almost 500 mile adventure. Within 100 miles they began to seriously streatch out. They streached to the point of no longer offering any ankle support. In addition I found a boot that started out not letting my toes touch the front going down hill to causing my feet to ache from direct force on my toes in contact with the boot toe. If I knew where to get new boots along the way I would have thrown these out.
DO NOT BUY for SEROIUS HIKES!!!

Rated5out of5byNaive NovicefromGreat BootI am a novice hiker who used this boot on a first-time forray into the Grand Canyon; down South Kaibab and up Bright Angel. The boot did not disappoint. It is lightweight and comfortable. I wore a liner sock along with a medium weight wool hiking sock and had no foot problems at all, not even any hot spots, during two very long and very hot days on the trail. I do not have much experience on which to base a thorough comparison. But I like this boot a lot and highly recommend it.

Rated4out of5byGrand Canyon HikerfromLoved these bootsHiked into and out of the Grand Canyon for the first time, and got these boots for the trip. Did about 30 miles over 3 days carrying about 30 pounds. The boots were outstanding. Not too heavy but plenty of ankle and foot support.

Rated5out of5byhaleskfromGreat BootsBoth my boyfriend and my brother just bought a pair of these. We went on a 15 mile hike the day after purchasing these, and there was absolutely no break-in necessary. They are amazing. Comfortable, light-weight, water-proof, solid boots. I can't wait for my old boots to kick the can so I can buy the women's version.

Rated4out of5byOld Schoolfromso far, so goodRecently retired and intend to hike much more of the AT - considered more expensive boots (Asolo) but bought these on sale at REI - replaced an old pair of Hi-Teks - sized up 1/2 size - comfortable out of the box - walked through every puddle I could find and also a small stream - feet stayed dry - next day 10 miles on AT - very comfortable.
