Chelsea P.wrote a review of Forsake Patch Hiking Boot - Women's on May 15, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have been planning a trip to Iceland and Europe this summer and needed a pair of waterproof hiking boots that were versatile. I originally bought a pair of Keens and was fitted with a men's pair. I went on a hike to test them out and ended up coming home with horribly painful feet. These boots had caught my eye a while ago, but I was concerned with buying online from a brand I have never tried on in person before. I saw these were on sale and decided to just wing it. I read on one of the reviews that these shoes are a full size bigger, but Forsake adjusted their newer shoes to be accurate to size, and some of the shoes at Backcountry are still large. I wear a solid 9.5. I guessed and bought a 9 on here, and it ended up being perfect for me. They felt a little roomy without hiking socks on, but once I put the hiking socks on with them, they felt perfect. They are so much more attractive and versatile than my Keens and they feel better too. Glad I took a risk and ordered them. I still have to go on an actual hike with them, but I don't think I'll have any issues with these... I can already tell they are going to be fine.
