Comfortable right out of the box!
Reviewed in Canada on January 27, 2020
I never trust reviews that say the shoe is comfortable right out of the box but these really are! A first for me. I didn't need any break in period. I purchased these hiking boots for the purpose of hiking. I had purchased another pair that over time turned out just to be too narrow for my feet. I have flat feet and after a long hike, the sides of my feet are crammed against the sides so I thought maybe going with a wide shoe was the way to go. These are perfect. They are not too wide, they give me just enough extra room to keep my feet comfortable. I went on a five day hike throughout Zion averaging 15 miles a day, hiking 7-8 hours a day over snow, mud, ice and rocky terrain and these hikers were fantastic -- really are very comfortable. Was waterproof for the most part on my trip. I've read countless reviews these shoes do not wear well and I'm okay with that... planning to use mink oil on them and hopefully I can squeeze a few years out of them. So if you are like me and normally wear a regular sized hiker but need just a bit more room to keep things comfortable without scarificing angle support and traction, these are a good pair to consider in the wide.
