Great comfort, right out of the box.
I was between these and the Vasque Briza boot for an upcoming trip to South America.. I'll be backpacking and doing some light hiking, so I need an all around boot. I have a wide toe-box and Vasque fit the best out of any boot I tried. Because I have a wider foot, I did order the wide, even though I tried the regular on in a store and they fit ok. Fit is true to size. I decided to go with this boot over the Briza because I felt like these would last longer.. Just a heavier-duty boot -- The briza almost looks anf fits like a high-top tennis shoe. They are SUPER comfortable right out of the box and haven't required much breaking in, but I haven't worn them hiking yet. Pretty light for how durable they appear as well.
