I wasn't sure which size to order and decided to go with my typical exact shoe size of 11.5. They fit perfectly! Really nice feel moving around. Tongue is sealed in and nothing too bulky. Easy to tie up and they look great. You can tell they are both solid and light at the same time. Will be taking them on an 8km overnight hike with a pack. Looking forward to putting them to the ultimate test.
This is a high quality medium-duty boot. The sole is a little more flexible than their heavier-duty boots, so these are comfortable with little/no break-in. Only wish they offered a bit more width in the toe box to provide some wiggle room. The lacing is somewhat thinner than usual diameter cord. Hopefully it will hold up over time.
These boots are great! If you use a custom insole use a thin one and you won’t be disappointed! A thick hiking insole takes up too much room and you really don’t need it. Keep it simple!
