not for weak arches
This boot is very lightweight and would be comfy if you have average arches. It lacks enough foot support for those of us with weak arches. Also, the tongue does not come up past the top of the boot in the women's version. My husband has this same boot- he has averages arches- and LOVES them. The tongue on the man's version comes up appropriately past the top of the boot for proper lacing.
Shoe laces fell apart on both of our pairs in under three months of normal wear.
My husband wears his frequently and loves them. Me, not so much. I am already looking for a different lightweight day hiker.
Amazing and really well made

I am a Forester by profession and spend most of my year hiking many miles cross country through the mountains everyday. These boots held up for a year of this abuse, which for a boot this light is really amazing. I will buy these boots again and again!
Disclaimer: I recieved these boots to gear test.
I got these shoes in 2007 for an archaeological field school - and was later employed for nearly two years on a field crew working in rugged outdoor conditions, hiking 70% of the time and these boots survived it all! They are rugged, provide good ankle support, and will keep your feet dry no problem! My only complaint is that they are so rugged and bulky that they weren't always ideal for the environment - I worked often in the middle of the Mojave desert and they were very protective against rocks and spiny things, but my feet got ridiculously hot in the summer. There is not much breathability with these boots. Regardless, they are definitely worth the 90 bucks.

I need these in black. Can I get? I work for postal service and cant find a good black hiking boot.
