Sizing notes

For rock climbing shoes: Choose soft shoes two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size. We recommend you fit your trad shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size. Remember to factor in stretch. Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch about one full size. Lined shoes stretch about a half size. Remember: a well-fit comfortable shoe will work better than an ill-fitting tighter shoe. For boots: Add one half size to your street shoe size. You should be able to slip one finger behind your heel when you are standing up with the boot unlaced and your toes touching the front. If the boot is too short, your toes will get smashed walking downhill. Too long and your heel will slide up and down and give you blisters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots tested on Mighty 5 Utah National Parks I bought these boots last month at the recommendation of an REI associate, and after comparing to multiple other hiking boots. As an avid distance runner used to flat road running shoes, these boots were the most comfortable. When you put them on, you'll feel a "spring" not felt with other boots. I broke in the boots inside my home for two days before hiking the Mighty 5 Utah National Parks. The boots felt SO great on the trails, despite a short "break-in" period. The boots are a little more pricey than some others, but well worth the money. I am typically a size 9 running shoe, and the size 9 hiking boot worked well for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with these... I'm not going to disparage the brand of my prior hiking boots, but, after doing a pretty rigorous 70-mile backpack in Sweden, I left them behind... while I probably won't do that particular backpack again, I don't think I would leave these behind. My others were very sturdy and never left me with a blister, but, they felt "hard" everywhere (don't know how else to explain it). From the moment I put these on my feet, I knew they were my next boot, they feel sturdy (i.e. soles will protect from rocks, etc. when carrying weight) but inside so cushiony (like pillows)... my first trip out on a shorter backpack, I have zero complaints, even a small test through water, liked the grip the soles gave on different terrains (I live in Arizona).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm calling these "approach boots" As a rock climber, I often have to carry 50+ pounds through 2-3 mile hikes, leading to class 5 scrambles to get to the face climbing. With knee problems, I needed approach shoes with enough support to manage the weight of my pack, enough grip to handle the scramble, the ability to go through creeks without weighing down, and a versatile enough shoe to be comfortable in 30-90 degrees Fahrenheit. These do get a little warm in the heat, but not unbearable. As for everything else, these hit the mark! I'm very pleased! I have narrow feet with high arches and I purchased my regular shoe size. They fit perfect and did not need any breaking in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel like I've worn them for ages I was initially attracted to the look of these boots, which are slick and fun, but was instantly blown away by the fit as soon as I put them on. They feel broken in from the start and have amazing traction that held it's grip in sand, snow, and slanting terrains. They look brand new, but feel like an old faithful boot. I have a fairly narrow foot and I get no slip and feel snug in these boots. Run true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't say enough good things! I bought these boots the day before I was hiking the Juan de Fuca trail on Vancouver Island, when I realized I'd left my old hiking boots at home. I was nervous about not having time to break them in - doing such a big hike with a brand new pair of boots isn't a smart plan. But these boots were perfection. I didn't experience a single blister or hot spot on the 4 day trip. They are by far the most comfortable thing I've ever had on my feet. I did the trail mid May, and it was rainy and beyond muddy, and these boots kept my feet dry the whole time. Feel nice and light on, provide great support and have a kind of spring or bounce to them that is awesome. They are dream boots - can't recommend them highly enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable Purchased about three weeks ago. This is a super comfortable boot right out of the box. I purchased 1/2 size larger than usual and fit is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rocky Mountain, Zion, Moab, Canyonlands Tested Feels like pillows on my feet with the grip of frog toes. Seriously amazing boots. Great for the 5 or 20 mile day. No break in time needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Light weight, and yet, support extremely well. Super comfortable from the very first hike on. Highly recommended :)

Is the toebox roomy enough for bunions?

Asked by: Lillian
These boots run true to width and they do not have a particularly wide toe box. If you have a narrow foot this boot may still work, but if you need a wider boot to accommodate your bunions, this boot may not be the best choice.

Is this boot sufficient for longer backpacking expeditions? If not, what brand/boot do you recommend for such extensive use?

Asked by: bethany14
If you are planning to pack light on your backpacking trips these boots will be a fine choice. However if you are planning on carrying more than 30 lbs. we would recommend going for a heavier duty backpacking boot, found on the link below:

Can these shoes be worn in the snow?

Asked by: rosecamille
These boots are waterproof so will keep your feet dry in the snow. However, they are not insulated so they may not be warm enough for hiking in the snow.
