To be fair, I really wanted to like this product. Reading through the description and knowing the specs on these boots, they sound really nice. They look really nice... But... They don't feel good... I tried different socks, I gave them multiple chances on different terrain but in the end, just couldn't keep them.

Cons: Hot spots, tight foot bed

I had the exact same experience. Got through SAC for ridiculous price, but never had a chance to try on in person. Great return policy and super cheap SAC pricing made buying these unseen worth the risk IMO though. These boots look amazing, just didn't fit me. Definitely a narrow build. They were too small a size,but still had heal slip just walking up the stairs. Taking out the insole shim helped but not quite there. Thinking about re-ordering a size up, but still have no way to try on in person. Maybe time to fall back on the trusty Merrells

I had a similar experience with the Salewa Mt Trainer boots. They hurt my feet. After wearing them for just a few hours, my heel would be in excruciating pain. Decided to give the Alp Trainer a chance and I have not been disappointed.
