This is the kind of shoe that I'm tempted to buy another pair of to hide in the back of the closet. As an insurance policy against future bad shoe design trends.
EDIT: I've had these boots for more than six months now, and am impressed enough to come back and mention a few things:
1) I abuse my footwear, and these boots stand up to my brutality. I'm marvelously surprised that the soles are so sturdy...I'll push myself until I'm literally dragging my heels, and these are handling it very well. Also, that little sole bit that curls up onto the toe? It's still attached to the toe with some magic wonder-adhesive. This part usually starts to peel off of my hiking boots.
2) I wore them all winter with wool socks, and wore them last summer with lightweight socks. Somehow they fit well both ways, are warm enough when it's twenty degrees, and breathe enough for me to wear well into Teva weather.
3) They only get more comfortable.
EDIT TWO: Okay everybody, I got these boots a year and some months ago, and I can't gush enough about them. They are my go-to utility shoe, I wear them every day that is under 85 degrees. I guess they're broken in now, they fit like a glove.
No more than two days later, I wore these boots practically to the summit of the West Spanish Peak (12,700 ft). The next day, around the crater of Capulin Volcano. The next day, up to the peak of Star Dune in the Great Sand Dunes. THE NEXT DAY, up to the top of the Kashe-Katuwe Tent Rocks. Around the Valles Caldera, Petroglyphs National Monument, and Sandia Crest. The topper - we finished our trip at El Malpais, an a'a' volcanic flow notorious for eating boots (and hands). My boots came out unscathed. By the end of our trip, many of my mates' shoes were wrecked - mine were in fairly pristine shape, with the exception of some staining from stomping in mud puddles and tromping through creeks (which my feet stayed completely dry for).
When my Ahnus die, they will hold a place in my shoe hall of fame. Then I will buy another pair. All around trusty, awesome boots. They're not quite as magenta as they were when my journey started, but hey - if they stayed pretty, I wasn't wearing them to the right places.
I am a size 9.5 - 10 and I found that this boot fit perfectly length-wise. I do have wide feet and these were ever so slightly narrow. To fix this I put on three pairs of hiking socks and heated the boot at the pinch points with my blow dryer. These boots responded really well to heat forming and I am happy to say that they fit me now as though they were custom-molded to the contours of my feet. I have another pair of these in suede. I think this stiffer leather-like finish is better for rougher terrain and gives superior ankle support. They are warm, match all my outdoor clothes and provide a little bit of fashion on the trail as well.
I recently have been wearing these on the way to the corporate office and they have ben really comfortable and warm for the one-mile walk from the train to my desk. I like that these are formal enough to transition from outdoor gear to winter office-wear.
Just this past weekend, I wore these in the white mountains while hiking the Lonesome Lake trail. They performed really well without microspikes on sloped packed snow. They did end up slightly damp by the end of the hike, but overall did great. On the way down I attached some coils for better grip. Check out the pictures.
For the price, these boots are excellent. Thanks for the great product!
