Not only have I worn them walking up hill to class, but I have put countless miles hiking in the Adirondacks in NY, Green Mountains in VT, White Mountains in NH, desert hills in Baja California and snowy treks in Utah. Plus I have worn them 4-wheeling, mountain biking and fishing (ankle-deep submerged for extended periods of time), all without ever having a problem or wishing I had a different pair!
Last year my parents' and grandparents' houses flooded, and I spent hundreds of hours working in the water, mud, sand, you name it, carrying refrigerators, washer/dryers, kitchen sinks, etc. out of their houses. I never had a leak or rolled an anke, or even felt sore in my feet. They have fabulous support, padded ankles, durable natural leather, and are incredibly lightweight. What more could you need in a boot??!!
I often go out looking for new hiking boots, thinking that a more technical pair would suit my outdoor activities. But after almost 5 years of wearing them, I could not be happier and just bought my second pair. I can't wait to see where they take me!
As a side note, I was on the phone with my Dad the other day, who said he had to go help someone with a new property on top of hill (it's winter). He mentioned that he tore through his last pair and didn't have an real boots, so I told him to look in the back of my closet for a pair of beat up brown Timberlands (the ones I bought in college 5 years ago)... He reported that they were fantastic and asked if he could keep wearing them. So even 5 years old second-hand these things perform like a champ.
The first thing that I noticed was that these boots seem to run a little short. The width was right on, but I would consider ordering a 1/2 size up if you are going to wear heavy socks.
Second, these boot offer NO mid-sole support whatsoever. With every step you feel the mid-sole bend. I would not rate these as even a "light hiker". Maybe a good fashion boot for people that like the outdoorsy look.
Third, is that the lace loops appear to be plastic rings. I would imagine they will get brittle over time or even break.
Finally, like the euro hikers I just sent back, the manner in which the lace hardware was riveted to the boot left most of the backsides of hook rivets with sharp edges exposed to the inside of the boot (and your ankle). You can clearly see the deformed back side of the rivets, but I guess nobody at timberland's overseas sweatshop looked at their work before boxing and shipping.
I rarely if ever review products - but in this case had to make the exception regarding the Timberland boot.
BUY THE SHOES!
