Good Daily Boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 160 lbs
    Size Purchased: 9.0

I wear this daily in the winter. Great tread for winter slush and snow. I wouldn't wear them in the summer... They are warm in the winter, but not sweating while at a desk or something. Summer I think they would be hot for me.

Fit great, I use a shoehorn and wear them a little on the loose side and can then leave them tied (slip on/off). Leather is a little stiff when new, but breaks in. I classify them as "Smart Casual" because they are dressy enough for formal business shoe, while you can hang on the weekends in the same boot without looking out of place.

I love these boots. They are comfortable, waterproof (but not hot) and hold up well to all the general abuse I put them through over a period of time. They look great too. I've been wearing them for a couple of years now and I highly recommend them.

Durable but flexible

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have been rocking these boots as hunting boots the past few weeks and really digging them. The waterproofing works well, even tromping through the wettest conditions. The traction is great on rock, trail, or slippery grass.

I'm getting a few scuffs, but overall impressed with the build and the materials.

What I like most is that they're durable but allow your foot to flex. I'm used to pretty minimal shoes and my feet doing most of the work, so it's great to have found a pair of boots that allow the same.

Versatile, good looking boots

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I tend to wear these with nice jeans, but they can be dressed up or down. Very comfortable on my hard-to-fit feet. They have the quality I expect from Patagonia and are worth the price.

I've owned two pairs. What I've learned.

These are my favorite shoes. Because of this, I just bought $40 inserts to fix them. The footbeds that comes with them are not adequate, and slide up the back of your ankle as you walk. Unacceptable. I solved this in my first pair with tape. This happens to both pairs that I've owned, so I know that it's definitely an ongoing design problem. On my latest pair, the height of the rim of the opening of the shoe was at the wrong place on the left shoe, wearing a hole in my ankle. Backcountry offered me a refund, which was great, but I chose to just try to fix them with a raised superfeet footbeds instead. Solved the issue, but Patagonia, what the heck? They are great otherwise. I use them for very light hikes, rain, snow, going to bars, interviews, etc. Very versatile.

Warm boot

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I wanted a boot good enough looking to wear to work but also warm. Bingo! This boot looks fine with chinos and keeps my feet warm. Very comfy. Perfect sizing. Worth the money.

Great Boots with Many Uses

I wore them on a short hike and they were very comfortable in every respect. They are warm however so you would have hot feet on a hot day. But I rarely hike in that kind of weather anyway and they do look good for occasions outside of hiking. I was a little disappointed that there was no guidance with the shoes on how to care for them, polish, clean, etc and had to email Patagonia for that info. But overall, very satisfied.

Ranger Smiths

These boots are a great option for lots of different situations. They are dressy enough for my office with a pair of casual dress pants and a nice shirt or they can be casual enough for jeans and a sweatshirt. They have proven to be waterproof and very warm, almost too warm. The traction is amazing. The sizing is true and these are very, very comfortable. My only complaint is that in some light, the brown color can take a purple hue. I'm hoping that they will fade and that will go away over time. But it is not stopping me from wearing them. I highly recommend if you're looking for a 'dressy' yet very functional boot.

I've been waiting to pull the trigger on these boots for some time now, price being the major limiting factor. I've owned them for several weeks and have found them indispensable. Sharp clean appearance that works out on the town yet plenty of support and traction for the trail. These Ranger Smiths get the job done. The sizing is spot on too!

Great shoe/Boot !

Plain n simple talk --Fantastic footwear!!

I'm going on a day hike up a 14er in colorado and my trail shoes are shot. I have some redwing work boots that get me by in winter and nasty rain/mud, but I would never wear them hiking - too heavy. do you have a pair of these patagonia boots? this "day hike" will be at a pretty quick pace - you have to go up at 4 am and be back before storms hit in the mid afternoon.

This would work...but its going to be a pretty warm shoe. Might want to look for something lighter/more breathable.

how will/have these boots held up on fairly intensive mountain hikes? Is this a good option or should I go with a more traditional hiking boot/shoe?

Best Answer Responded on

As for waterproof-ness and material durability they would be fine. My only concern would be how much support you need/are used to while hiking. For day hikes these should work if your used to lightweight boots but I would be a little uneasy about big loads with these. If this helped please Thumbs Up. Thanks.

I was wondering if this boot is made for cold weather since it has fleece and wool lining? I am looking for a nice looking waterproof boot to take to Africa. It will be pretty hot there in July!

Responded on

This boot is great because it's so versatile. I've seen it on the trails and I've seen it in the office. It's just got a classic look. It's not made specifically for winter weather, the polar-tech/merino lining is there primarily for comfort, but it you add a thick wool sock in the winter time, you will definitely be covered for warmth. I would use thin, wool sport socks with these in the summer.

Top notch boot / shoe

Took my new Ranger Smiths out for a true test today having had a easy first outing through Changi airport and Vancouver streets. Today was a full on slush pile in melting snow,puddles and rain in Whistler. Thought there was no way they could be waterproof (as it says on the packet) so proceeded to walk through every puddle, slush pile etc I could find. 4 hours later got home and checked socks etc for any damp. All fine but feeling down the end of the shoe it felt wet. Being a bit of a nerd I stuffed tissue paper down to see if it was wet in the toes but alas not, just cold to the touch rather than wet. Great pair of boots/shoes comfortable, warm and dry. Would buy another pair if they did them in black! Top notch !

Comfy, classy, good materials

Love the boot. I use it in a casual environment. I haven't taken it hiking yet. Not a fan of the inserts, but not a big deal because I use custom orthotics which fit nicely by-the-way. The quality is worth the price. Saw these boots a little cheaper elsewhere, but backcountry service is worth the extra.

I bought these as heavy duty hikers, for southern enviroment. With the Polartec lining, I think they would hold up in any enviroment. I actually changed jobs recently, and I wear them with dress pants, shirt w/tie, and sports coat. I'm never buying anything but Patagonia shoes again.

Excellent multi-purpose boot

Purchased this boot to use during a week of light hiking in the Shenandoah Nat Park, and also be able to use them at casual outings during at wedding in DC that weekend (didn't want to pack a lot of shoes). Served their purpose well.

I have narrow feet, and these fit fairly well, but I have to use a pair of Superfeet to add to the factory inserts to take up the volume. The shank feels like a half shank, but provides good support for light hiking.

The boots are nice enough to wear with a pair of khakis.
