These are my favorite hikers, ever. I've been wearing these for 4 months now. I get out on some serious trails, about 15-20 miles/week with serious elevation gain. When I bought these, I was trying to find a pair of shoes that would work in the AZ desert and in Iceland (where I was going to move, but then, pandemic). I wanted a pair of barefoot boots, but there's not really a good one that exists and is good for many different climates and isn't a kajillion dollars. When I'm hiking in AZ, I need a shoe that can go from 85-90 degrees in lowland desert to 45 degrees in the highlands, and also look stylish. It's a lot to ask from a shoe. These are the closest answer I've found.

First: comfy right out of the box; I broke them in on a 6 mile hike in Joshua Tree in January. Pure gold. Over the last 4 months the leather has gotten really supple, like the best pair of jeans. They're flexible compared to some of Sorel clodhoppers; I love the balance of flexibility and support from these. The longest hike I've had them on was an 18 mile hike with about 5000 feet of elevation gain. No problems.

Size/shape: I have narrow feet, so the toe box was wide enough, certainly not barefoot but great. Basically no arch support, which I wanted--I usually go barefoot so arches feel too intrusive now. Overall supportive. True to size; I wear a 7.5 and these have been great. They have the burrito-style tongue that holds it in place--makes an even better fit.

Durability: I have abused these shoes and they're holding up great. They work as every day shoes and they're cute as hell. Traction is great. Weird pro: the footprint is unique, which is helpful if you get lost on the side of a mountain and need to retrace your steps.

Warmth: they work with thin socks in the lowlands, thick socks in the highlands. I was out this past weekend in 90 degrees and I wished I'd had more room for foot swelling. A few weeks ago I had them up at 8000 feet in snow and they were still great.

Waterproof: I haven't sloshed around and fully submerged them, but they tromp through puddles and low water crossings without a problem.

I wanted to love these so bad! They are so cool looking and I was excited when I opened them. Unfortunately, they were just really uncomfortable on me. I tried loosening the laces, tightening the laces, wearing different socks...nothing worked. They really hurt my left ankle and I couldn't figure out why. I returned them, which was easy and no problem, I just wished they had worked :-( Just FYI, I have very narrow feet and thin ankles if this helps anyone thinking about buying.

My job takes me to some hard-to-trek areas, and I needed something better than my Frye boots. I started searching for hiking boots, but most of them were not my style at all. These are actually sort of cute, and functional too - the dream combination! They have excellent traction and allow to clamber up hillsides with loose debris and rocks/boulders. They are super comfy and required no break-in period. They do run a bit small - I am typically a 9 and went with a 9.5, which fit perfect; they are roomy enough for thick socks, but not so large I can't wear thin socks either. The tongue is the only caveat for me, they are attached to the sides of the boots rather than the typical loose flap-style tongue, and sometimes they don't sit flat enough and are uncomfortable on the top of my feet.

My boots didn't last the season. The seams are coming apart on the heel of one boot, and I've only had them since January 2019. This is also the second pair of Sorel boots that I have had that has come apart. I was able to return the first pair and thought it was a fluke, but now this pair is also falling apart. Worked great when I first got them but they don't last long. I plan to buy Fyre boots next year.

These are very cute, while still being useful for winter in Minnesota. I can walk a long time and they still feel comfortable and don't give me blisters. They're super warm and the benefit of ties at the top means it's super easy to get your feet in and out. Highly recommend!

Love the boots, but definitely order at least a half size up. They are snug through the toe. I typically wear an 8 and needed to size up to 8 1/2. They still felt a little tight in the toe , but wore them around the house and they broke on nicely. I wear them almost everyday!

These are cute and comfortable boots despite an odd fit. Some reviewers suggested sizing up as much as a full size, which I did at first. The boots were too big. Then I tried my size as well as a half size larger. The closest fit for me was a half size larger. But they weren't exactly right. And I finally decided that if it was that hard to decide, I should just return the boots, probably the best decision since these boots are a little clunky for someone who is 4'11 and 80 pounds. Better look on a taller person.

Giving it 2 stars for the way it looks and overall comfort. But I have to say it is not very good quality. The suede/ leather started peeling after just a few wears. Wore them on a trip to Austria in the Fall. Even with wool socks on my feet were cold in 50 degree somewhat wet weather. My shoes didn’t even arrive in its actual package but an amazon box instead. But didn’t think anything of it at the time. Now I am wondering if they are actually a Fake. Very disappointed. Not worth the steep price.

Love these boots, they look good and are comfy to walk in. I have tested them out in puddles and no water came through! As other reviews suggested I went up half a size from 7.5 to an 8 and they fit perfectly.

Ottimo scarponcini da montagna e/o invernali. Li ho utilizzati in ciaspolata e in escursioni in mezzo alla neve/ghiaccio e i miei piedi sono rimasti perfettamente asciutti e caldi! Attenzione solamente alla taglia: io calzo normalmente un 36/36.5 al primo tentativo ho acquista un 37 ma erano molto stretti con calze di lana pertanto ho scelto di cambiare con un 38.
