"These shoes are by far the best hiking boots I could have ever come across!"
I have tried out several different kind of boots for hiking, and my biggest problem is weight, waterproof capability and snugness. These shoes fit all three. They fit like an awesome snug tennis shoe, but they have all the capability for a great hike. I feel completely safe in them and can go on some pretty dangerous terrain and feel comfortable and supported. They have saved my ankles from rolling or twisting several times. Also, they are trendy enough to wear on campus or around town, and are also comfortable enough! My feet never get swollen! All in all an awesome hiking shoe that doesn't look like the typical boot, but works like one.
Shoes to fit are a problem for me because of wide forefoot and NARROW instep. This boot has it all. I tried it around the house for a few hours to be sure I should try a hike. That passed and I walked over 3 miles with two dogs in tow and my feet, and knee (missing ACL) were so happy even at the end of this long day in a new pair of boots. Now I just pray they last very many miles as they are just perfect. Agressive but not too much sole to go along with the good looks and comfort. Takes a minute to lace them appropriately. DKW
