Runs Large

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 11.5

I got these as a gift and had to immediately return them. They were clonky big. It's a great looking boot and I wish it would have fit. He is typically an 11.5 in shoes but I should have gotten him a 10.5 in this one.

Strap Failure

    On only the third time I had an occasion to wear these boots, the strap used in assisting you pulling them on, broke at the stitching point. Disappointed but still willing to try another pair (they are very comfortable from the get go) I attempted to exchange them. Customer Service (I use term lightly) told me that it could not be done by phone. I explained that there was no return/exchange form with the item or anything I could find to inform me as to what to do and could she possibly help me? " No, you have to Email you problem" she answered. So, I do and several days later no response. I then texted a "Gearhead" and got an apology and what I thought to be a remedy for my situation. However, his response, did not include the UPS Shipping label that was supposed to be attached. More research,
    more time wasted and another Email and then another "Gearhead" exchange and I got my return label. There has got to be a better way!
    Hoping that this was an isolated case as I really like this boot and Backcountry has provided me with some really nice gear in the past.

    Moon Walkin'

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11

    These are so comfortable! I put them on and immediately liked them. The staining looks so good as it darkens towards the toe on the brown pair. The deep brown has stayed very clean. The leather doesn't scratch too easily but I haven't necessarily done any activities that would test that. All around great boot and warm. Love the waterproof and surprisingly breathable as well.
