I have wide feet that are prone to plantar fasciitis. I find that men's sizing works better for me feet than women's. I hike 5-8 miles a day in mountain terrain and have not had a recurrence of PF since using these boots. My feet stay dry even after wading through water, and they stay warm during winter snow hiking. They are kind of heavy, but lack of foot pain is worth it. These boots are well-made and last a long time.
Was looking for a water proof "cold / wet weather Hiker and backpacking boot for a Up-coming Trip to the Whites. Whereas this is a Generally comfortable boot , it is wider than I will need for hiking while wearing a medium weight sock. This boot will be "GREAT" for wearing with Heavy Winter socks or Heavy hiking socks . As with the Majority of "HIKERS" this boot has extra room in width and length for those who wear two sock's or a Heavy sock during hiker . But still , this boot isn't uncomfortable while wearing mid-level socks . Really two things preclude me taking it to the whites 1) it is stiff and we are going to be doing some minor rock Scrambling and it won't work for that ! 2) As with "ALL" boots that have speed laces , I can "NEVER" get them truly TIGHT on my feet !! For Non- rock scrambling or for chance rock scrambling and Common Hiking in cold / fowl Weather this boot will be the BOMB !!! Overall , GREAT boot for the money . Keeping it for sure !!!
I bought these boots to use on a motorcycle trip cross-country. These boots are similar to, but not the same as, the Solitude model which is no longer made; I have a soft spot in my heart for the Solitude model as they saved my ankle from some serious road rash when I went down on a previous motorcycle. Hopefully, these will serve as well.
