Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love This Boot My friend, who works for REI, recommended this boot to me before I went on a backpacking trip. I was telling her how I have a hard time with shoes, especially hiking boots due to having a wide foot but very narrow heel. I like a boot that is supportive, but not so stiff it makes me feel like I can't really move my feet. She told me the Ahnu Sugarpine is ridiculously light, fits my foot shape perfectly AND they don't really need a breaking in period. I took her word for it, and I'm so glad I did! Just got back from hiking with these: 50% of the trail was under water and my feet stayed dry. Yay! The only thing I wish they had a little bit more of is a reinforced toe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible from Day One I took these boots to Ireland without much break in. They were a dream! We were doing a couple 2 hour hikes a day in uneven terrain, plus lots of mud, puddles, rain, wind and cold. Even with all these things, they were like wearing tennis shoes in dry weather. I felt invincible. I don't even want to think about how miserable I would have been without them. I have high arches and for most shoes I have to use a slip in support. Amazingly, not with these! They were comfortable from the moment I put them on my feet. I'm an 8.5, but I ordered a 9 and it was perfect. I NEVER love shoes this much because my feet are so picky. But I love these so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Pair of Hiking Boots I didn't own a pair of hiking boots, and I was about to go on a 5 day hike to Machu Picchu. I bought these the week before at my local REI, wore them for the first time on the first day of the hike and abused them with 24 hours of hiking in the next few days. I survived the hike blister free. They were light and as comfortable as my tennis shoes. I walked through muddy, rocky, dusty, and steep trail conditions, and my feet were protected and dry throughout it all. At the end of the day, all my friends were itching to take off their hiking shoes, but I didn't mind wearing mine til we had to go to sleep at night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boots for walks less than 10 miles I bought these boots to wear on the 96 mile West Highland Way in Scotland. I wore them for over a year on short hikes and absolutely loved them. They needed no break-in. They are exceptionally light and comfortable and very grippy on slabs of rock. My only negative is that on this particular hike, with a lot of rough Stoney gravel and small rocks to walk over, the soles of my feet were very sore after a 13 -15 mile walk. I could feel all the stones underneath even though I am carrying only a light daypack. I might buy the next one up, the Montara, in hopes that it will provide more stiff cushion for the soles of the feet. Great ankle support, though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! I bought this product to do a Rim to Rim at the Grand Canyon in summer over 2 days with a 40 lb pack. I did one of those things they tell you never to do, which was to break in the boot. Even not breaking the boots in more than 2 hours, my feet were great 26 miles later. The boots were flexible enough to be super comfortable to hike in, but provide substantial ankle protection and be VERY lightweight. I've since used them in the Argentine Andes where they are a pleasure to be in all day for work. This is an outstanding, durable, comfortable, lightweight and versatile product--my go-to for this type of boot in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved them! I bought these boots for a week long trip to Iceland and only had the chance to break them in during a quick 2 hour hike before my trip. That was all I needed, they were completely comfortable and lightweight for the entire week. It rains a lot in Iceland so I was able to really test how waterproof the boots are. Even after being completely submerged, my feet stayed dry and surprisingly well ventilated.There was one time I got a little too close to the ocean and a wave crashed down on my feet (user error) but even so they dried quickly and I was able to wear them later that day. The traction is also great as I climbed over many slippery rocks and surfaces there was never an issue. I would definitely recommend these boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! Lightweight & flexible. I feel like I'm still in touch with the ground I'm hiking on but my feet are still protected from rocks and uneven surfaces. I had been looking for a ankle high hiking boot for quite a while and these felt great in the store and sure enough, when I took them hiking for the first time I loved them. I have pretty small, narrow feet with a relatively high arch. The problem I had in the past with hiking shoes/boots were either too wide or heel slippage. These boots had none of those problems! Plus great colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love, love, love my Sugarpine boots. They pinched my ankles at first. But I had read a review before ordering and someone else had the same problems and it resolved. So I hung in there and I'm glad I did. They are most comfortable now. I hike every day year round. The pleasant surprise for me is that I can use these boots for all seasons. Lightweight in the summer/fall and especially good traction for ice and snow. I have always had to change boots. Not anymore. I do have high arches, and I use inserts for all my shoes. These boots are above average for support which makes them quite comfortable, although I still use my supports. They are very well made. The colors were a bit paler than I had imagined, but I really don't care.

Do these run true to size?  Also, I have narrow feet and most boots are too wide.  Wondering if these are narrower than most.   Usually wear an 8 unless it's a Nike.. Then 8 1/2.  Thanks for any help..

Asked by: Divegirl
The Sugarpine Boots have been known to run on the narrow side. They will fit true to length.

I'm looking for a boot that I can wear in the winter to hike and maybe closer to fall. I want my feet to be warm would these boots do that? Say for hunting purposes? 

Asked by: Marquee
These are excellent hiking boots, but they are not insulated. If you are looking for something to keep your feet warm we suggest looking for a winter hiking boot that will provide more insulation.

I have a pair of these boots and am wondering if they would be appropriate to wear snowshoeing. I know they are not insulated, so if I like snowshoeing I would buy some winter boots, but would my feet freeze on my first outing if I wore these?

Asked by: RobinD
These boots can be used for snowshoeing. In ideal conditions you may find these boots work great, but in wet snow or really cold conditions you might prefer to wear heavier boots or insulated boots. Wearing gaiters over your boots can certainly add a level of protection.
