I’ve had these boots for over a week now and have worn them in a variety of terrains and conditions in the Blue Mountains. I can offer these observations: Traction: fine on wet and muddy trails and wet tarmac. Not so good on smooth rock surfaces and wet grass. The soles really need deeper and wider spaced lugs and maybe grippier rubber for the soles. Then they would be perfectly capable hiking boots. Quality: Good durable boots will go a long way. Comfort: There’s not a lot of ‘ground feel’ with the moderately cushioned innersole but the boots are more comfortable than more minimalist shoes and great for long walks. Sizing: I initially followed Lems sizing guide and ordered a half a US size up. Too small. Better to follow bprimal’s advice and get a full size up. Overall, I’d recommend these boots.
I have worn these around the house as they are my wedding shoes (thank god for big white dresses hiding shoes! You can bet I'll have no sore feet from the dance floor!) But they are heavenly!
Great boots and even better service from bprimal. I had some good old redwing boots which I loved the look of but they weighed a tonne and killed my feet. Switched out to these Boulder boots and I'm wearing them all day from day one, no problems
I love these boots. They are lightweight and very comfortable. I wore these for the first time on our last camping trip and they were fantastic.
Reasonable Disappointed a boot so expensive was made in China Top of tongue hurts ankle, very comfortable. Interested how it wears
