Great boot

Comfort and quality is super high. Wear with work/business casual, outdoor, or pretty much anything. Sharp look and very good fit on my feet. True to size...I'd get them again.

These are, hands down, the best most comfortable boots I have ever worn out of the box. I have worn Salomon’s for years, until I got these. Amazing stability, grip and one of the most important things to me light and not clunky. Some boots I have worn in the past are very chunky looking and feel like I like the ability to move quickly when needed. With these guys on I feel that my foot is protected and I have great grip, warmth (not too much), and overall comfort. Keep it up, these are majestic!

So good

Incredibly comfortable. Even with a rep of being narrow, the climbing lacing is amazing

Terrible Heel Pain

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
6' 1"

As another reviewer indicated, the fit of this boot is great. The grip is also good on the Vibram soles. However, I used these boots for the first time when my son and I were hiking in Utah and the heel pain was unbearable. There is absolutely no cushion in the heels. I initially thought the boots needed to be broken in, but the pain never got any better. I tried on my son's Keen boots and there was a night and day difference in the impact absorption and cushion of the heel.

Comfortable boot but blistered up on a 3mile hike. Boots are not breathable at all.

Not waterproof

Not waterproof ....unfortunately because they are very comfortable. My first day in rainy weather hiking through wet vegetation, these boots left both socks wet near the toe where the tongue begins. It took over 24 hrs for the inside of the boots to dry out.

Zero cushion

The fit and feel of this boot is awesome. True to size and length. However, their claim of an eva midsole does not show. I’ve never had a boot hurt my heels and forefoot so badly. Wearing these boots on soft ground feels like standing on concrete. More than 2 hours or so and it’s unbearable and my feet hurt the following day. I’ve been wearing these for weeks thinking they need to break in and I even bought a second pair, this is not the case.

Somewhat disappointing

I bought this model end of May and am walking about 10-12 km every day in them on hard underground. The vibram sole is already halfway gone, which I find is not a good result in such a short time. I had the previous model for 5 years and did not see this level of wear on the soles with the same use. Apart from that the shoe is great as other reviews and comments already praise.

Best boot for the job!

I wear these boots for police work, but they are a good all around boot for any job that has you on your feet or out in the elements. They are extremely comfortable with little to no break in period. Great cushion around the ankle, excellent bounce in the soles, and they are sturdy. Last a long time under everyday wear and tear, keep your feet dry, and they look nice as well. Wouldn’t recommend a better boot.
