Sometimes I hesitate to order shoes without being able to try them on first, but faced with an impending snow storm and deep freeze I decided to give these a shot. These exceeded all of my hopes and expectations. Normally I'm a sneaker kind of guy so it was a little weird having real arch support at first. Now I'm not sure if I can go back. Speaking of backs, mine doesn't hurt anymore, which was an unexpected surprise. I would call the fit somewhere between medium and narrow. If you don't lace them up super tight they are comfortable enough that you don't even notice them.
For the past week I've worn them for about 10 hours a day with no issues or discomfort. They are fairly warm and water proof but I don't think they are intended to be a snow boot. That said, hours outside in 0 degree and below was no big deal in these boots and a decent pair of wool socks. On top of all of this, they are light and flexible enough that you can drive in them. I've had boots in the past that were so stiff and clunky that driving a car with a manual transmission was almost impossible. These have a similar footprint to a pair of sneakers so they don't get hung up on the under-dash pieces. Excellent boot in every way for me.
Updated review: They broke in just fine and fit nicely now. Wore them in deep snow & heavy rain, they kept my feet dry and warm. I recommend using foot powder w/ these if your feet sweat much as the waterproofing makes them not so breathable.
I got the black leather version.. Keep in mind that I haven't worn them in yet at all, BUT I feel that process might be a bit painful. (will later update after they're broken in) I'm mainly reviewing to point out that these don't run slightly large, despite almost everything I've read about Timberlands. According to Their website, a 9 should have been a little big.. Well, these run average in length but fit very tight from about the arch of my foot, to the toe-cap. it's pretty damn uncomfortable. (Though this can actually be fixed to some extent before you use them more) I even have really skinny feet to begin with, so beware if your feet run on the wider side. Otherwise, they're a really nice looking boot, but will have to be stretched out manually before I can ever put them to use hiking. Boot socks are currently out of the question, so I hope these are warm.
Everything you love about the non Wp Gt Scrambles, and a couple things you won't like so much.
The durability seems on par as of now. The fit is very good. The waterproofing works well. They are very comfortable if the weather is cool. When it warms up past 50 my feet start sweating in these very badly. I have worked in 95-105 heat for hours in the non wp version and never had sweaty feet.
