Fantastic Boot - One flaw

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

These are the most comfortable shoes/boots I have ever worn. The only negative I can think of is that the laces are elastic, which make them a little difficult to crank down. With that said, the level of comfort far makes up for the annoying laces to maintain 5 stars.

Cool Boot

I really like these boots. From how they fit to how they look. Overall, a good versatile boot for most occasions. One problem is with the elastic opening, which makes getting the boot on more snug than I would like. Also the elastic laces are an interesting feature. I'm not a fan of those, so I replaced with regular laces. Other than those two features, I'm very pleased with these boots.

Great Boot, But..

The boot itself is absolutely wonderful. It is a little hard to get into it the first time (especially if you have a high instep) but after that is awesome! the grip on it is great for the trail, but the style is still on point for the office. However, there a couple things that I think are pretty weird/wrong. First, it the back tabs of the shoe. On the second use, one of them pulled off the back of the shoe. Couple months late, the back one pulled off too. So now I have two boots that have the back tabs hanging off, looks like they are hanging on for deal life. Second, the shoelaces are a little odd. They are elastic (which I admit I didn't read about before I bought) which, even after a couple months of use, if still weird. They definitely keep the shoe closed and don't interfere with anything, but its just weird feeling, ya know?
In conclusion, they are a great stylish shoe. But definitely be a little easy on the back tabs, and make sure you know the laces as elastic!

I absolutely love these boots. They are extremely comfortable. I can walk all day long in them with no pain in my feet or legs. They are a rugged, tough boot that are completely waterproof. I expect them to wear very well and last a very long time.

So Fresh and So Clean Clean

Such a clean boot. Love them. Fit is a bit snug up in the ankle so be careful putting them on to not rip the finger loop. Also, not so sure about the elastic shoe strings you get. Makes it a bit hard to actually tighten the shoes, but they have such a great fit I have found you really don't need to use them.

Great everyday boot that is great around town, but is also at home on the trail. These boots are comfortable with a nice, wide toe box--the boot runs a little large. The elastic boot inner is comfortable, and allows for slip-on convenience (at the cost of ankle support). I've worn these boots for almost a year and they are going strong. Well made upper, durable sole, comfy footbed. The water resistance is also surprisingly good, these boots did very well in knee deep snow drifts and kept my feet dry! I just bought a spare pair for when my original boots are done, because they are that good.

Casual Ruggedness

These are great boots, they are a perfect mix of ruggedness with casual flair... the blue elastic laces are sharp looking.
