Rated5out of5bydaggie7fromgreat hiking shoesGetting ready to walk the El Camino in Spain next Spring, bought my hiking boots in Sept.to make sure they fit good,don't give me blisters, and are well broken in. Wearing them now every other day for my early morning walks.

Rated4out of5byPNW PikafromSolved my downhill "toe jam" issueI have tested these boots - I took them on the Wonderland trail - 93 miles, 22,000+ elevation gain with a 25-35lbs pack.
Pros: Going downhill my foot almost always slides into the front of my boots and slams my big toe against the tip of the boot. I tried bigger boots, smaller boots, tighter laces, looser laces, inserts. Finally! These boots keep my foot from sliding!
They are also waterproof. Lots of stream crossings prove this. The water proof part dips further down than you'd think, however, so it is fairly easy to accidently step in water that is too deep and get water inside (over the top).
These boots are super light weight - but that also means they are not as luxe or cushy as you may be used to! I didn't get a single blister during my 93 mile hike (I did tape my heels before we started).
The laces are super fast! This is super nice if when you just need to get out of the tent to pee.
Cons: There is a seam down the center of the heel. Come on Solomon, that is a terrible idea! I got lots of blisters, no matter how many times I wore them. I finally just started putting athletic tape on my heels before starting hiking to take care of the issue.
The included insoles SUCK! They are made from two types of material, and where they meet (around the bottom of the heel) the insole would eat my foot. I replaced them with 10 dollar insoles and the problem was fixed.
The light weightness of this boots means there is less padding. Any backpacking day over 10 miles my feet would ache - this is bound to happen, but happens faster in these boots. However, I think it is totally worth it for the light weight!
Overall: If you have issues with your foot sliding forward in boots, try these! It's worth buying the different insoles and taping the heels each time if my toes are saved from all the pain I've previously experienced! If you don't have this issue, I wouldn't buy these boots.
