Hike on.

The next time you head for cerulean blue glacial lakes and jagged alpine peaks, wrap your feet in the Forsake Patch Hiking Boot for a springy, cushioned trek. Pioneers of the "Sneakerboot," the mountain-loving craftsmen at Forsake create their boots to feel forgiving like your favorite pair of trainers but with subtle support that doesn't feel stiff or unyielding.

You'll still find all of the features of traditional hiking boots on the Patch, including a waterproof leather upper construction and waterproof membrane liner for days when the rain won't stop. The boots also include Forsake's Peak to Pavement outsole: an arrangement of lugs that lend stability and grip on a full range of surfaces. As the hours and miles tick by, the compression EVA midsole delivers a cushy, responsive ride, while the gusseted tongue prevents errant pieces of rock and gravel from interrupting your day.

Super comfortable

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Gave these to my friend as a gift, she wears them hiking in the desert, mountains, and working on a farm. They fit perfectly, offer generous comfort and support, and are cute enough for the city. All around win!

Lovely boots!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Wonderful boots. Comfortable right out of the box. I walked 10+ miles over a few days in them and had no blisters. If you buy the black/tan color, be careful about sizing! Apparently Forsake has made their new inventory TRUE TO SIZE, whereas their old inventory still runs half a size TOO LARGE. The ones I ordered from backcountry.com were half a size large. But once I found the correct size (three pairs later), I was in love with them. Happy Hiking!

Love these shoes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought my Patch boots a year ago and have worn them while traveling all over the world, from hiking in the southwest to in NYC and London. They never cease to catch a person's eye and they are a staple in my life. I just ordered a second pair in a diff color. Love them.

Love, Love, Love

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I’m not usually one to post reviews, but I absolutely love these boots. I looked over reviews for weeks when trying to decide on a pair of hiking boots to buy for a big trip. I settled on these. I’m typically a size 8 and the 7.5 were a perfect fit. I wore them in casual day hikes in Moab and the Grand Canyon and more serious hikes in Iceland. They’re actually the only pair of shoes I wore in Iceland! Super lightweight and so so cute! They are also very durable. And I expect they’ll be warm enough for cold and snowy Kansas City winters. They’re also very comfortable and didn’t take any time to break in.

Girlfriend Loves Them

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these for my girlfriend and she loves them. She likes how comfortable they are right out of the box and how they look. She didn't buy these for a hiking boot, more of a lounging around the fire shoe and they are perfect for that purpose.

Wanted to keep them but too big!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I listened to what other reviewers said and ordered a 1/2 size smaller than my regular; I'm a true 9 and ordered an 8.5. These are still too long in that I have too much room in the toe box and the heel slips a bit. I'm sooooo bummed! I wanted these to be my new nature/urban hikers. Also, the 8.5 even looked big on me. So strange. For reference, I'm 5'6", 125 and have a medium/narrow'ish/flat foot. Based on the reviews, odds are still good they'll work out for most, I'm just terribly sad they weren't for me.

Love Love Love - but HOT!!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these boots to wear in a ski shop where I am on my feet for 12 hours a day. I absolutely love them and they are VERY comfortable; I get compliment after compliment on them, to them point that I have to tell everyone about them! As other reviewers mentioned I sized down 1/2 size and they are perfect. The only thing is that they are absolutely the hottest shoes I have ever owned and I can't imagine actually hiking in them. These would be perfect if Forsake somehow added some ventilation without compromising style!!


  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

These boots are super cute and lightweight, but they are huge and also very wide. I returned them and tried the Patch version as they no longer had any 10.5 in stock. Just got the Patch's in the mail today - they seem even bigger than the ones I just sent back. These will be going back as well and Im giving up on these boots - tired of paying for return shipping. Cute but not worth all this hassle.

lightweight, stylish and versatile

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was worried. They said they ran big in sizes. I hummed and hawed. The closest store that sells them is a 1 hour drive and a 2 hr ferry trip from Vancouver. Off the screen and into a box and onto my feet and they fit like a glove. I usually wear a 7 and the 7 works. Super comfortable with room to wiggle my toe. Lightweight, flexible, good support. Apparently all the snow on the planet is coming to Vancouver in the next few days, so we'll see how they do. A pint of water over each foot rolled off. My only drawback from 5 stars is the "full grain leather" seems a little dubiously like a type of waterproofed fabric. Time will tell.

Sick boots

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Super waterproof in low tide conditions, love the style! Took a day or two to break them in but never had any blisters or problems with the fit. They work great in slick conditions and have a great tread.

Sneakerboots for the win!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I LOVE these boots and get a ton of compliments on them. I wear them in the rain and snow and they always keep my feet warm and dry. On top of that, they are super comfortable! They definitely tend to run a bit large - I'm normally a 10 but sized down to a 9.5, which fit perfectly. I recommend sizing at least a half-size down. These absolutely work for casual hiking, but I don't think I'd use them for strenuous hikes on tough terrain. Overall, a fantastic casual boot for everyday wear.

Absolutely adore these boots!

    I adore these boots! They are super comfortable, didn't even have to break them in! I read some of the other comments about the sizing, some of them say they run small but in my case they run true to size.
    I've hiked on them a few times now and I really love them.

    Comfy out of the box

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I wanted to keep these however was looking for a more all around hiking specific shoe and chose to keep a different pair. But these were extremely comfortable right out of the box. Had I kept these I could see using them as my every day shoe

    Great shoes, they do run large

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I ordered these and after some research on multiple sites, I decided to go a half size down. I'm almost always a 6.5 so I ordered a 6 and I'm sure glad i did!
    These shoes are comfortable, waterproof and I get tons of compliments on them wherever I go. I highly recommended these boots. It's important to note that I'm using them more as everyday cruisers in Montana and NOT for long hikes.

    Sister Loves Em!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Bought these for my sister for her birthday and she loves them. She lives in Colorado and has easy access to RMNP. She loves that these are a solid and supportive hiking boot, but also super stylish. She wears them not only on the mountain, but all over town, especially during the cold seasons. They truly are waterproof and stay really warm even in snow.

    I love these boots!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these before a road trip down the Oregon coast. It rained for about 10 days straight and my feet stayed dry. And they're comfy and stylin.

    Cute but not for hiking

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got these in a size 6.5 to use as a winter hiking boot. I'm a very consistent size 6.5 in most brands. Although my feet tend to be too narrow for most hiking and athletic shoes, these are ridiculously wide. My feet still move around way too much to hike in these even with my thickest socks. I ended up keeping them because they are so cute and I get compliments on them all the time, but they're a bit pricy as a casual around town boot. I'd only recommend these if you have super wide feet or don't plan on hiking in them.

    Stylish & practical

      So many compliments on these boots and very comfortable while hiking. No blisters!!

      Unanswered Question

      How much do these boots weigh?

      Functional and Stylish

        I just got these boots and love wearing them! They look way more fashionable and cute than the other hiking boots on market that are big and clunky. I don't feel awkward running errands or even running to the office with them still on after a hike. The details are great and super unique.
