I'm pleased with these boots in most all respects and particularly the wide toe box. Like most I ordered ½ size larger than normal. Not a big deal but Dark Earth color ordered and received (judging by lace stitching) looks remarkably like Dark Shadow shade, though not as green yet definitely not the lighter tan pictured. Guess thats why its called Dark Earth. Am satisfied with purchase and hoping for longevity of last hiking boot bought back when. BackCountry good to trade with.
