Comfortable, supportive, and lightweight.
At 15oz, these are some the lightest hiking boots you will find that are leather and waterproof. They also have excellent arch support, I have never worn a any shoe that has had good arch support until I wore these. If you are like me and usually get arch pains after hiking for a long time, then you will appreciate these boots. These boots are also wider in the forefoot, like all Chacos, which is nice because you can layer warm socks in the winter when the temperature drops and not pinch your toes. I found that these boots fit true to size, I normally wear a 9-9.5 and either size fit me great, but I went with the 9.5 so I could layer socks. Chaco sandals are a whole size too big though, I have the Z2 sandals in a size 8.
