I bought these boots because I wanted an inexpensive hiking boot that would be warm to wear in the fall and winter.
First of all, I love the rubber toe guard. They look like Keen boots, but at 1/4th of the price!
I put a different insole in the boot that really helps to give it more cushion. I also found that these boots run a 1/2 size large. I normally wear an 11, but opted for a 10.5.
The forefoot is wide enough to accommodate a thicker sock for hiking, or just for warmth when it gets chilly outside. But, it will cinch right down on the foot in thinner socks.
My only minor complaint is the insole was pretty thin, and opting for a beefier insole will probably make you like these boots much better. If they had Thinsulate, they would rock even harder!
I paid about $25 for these, after taxes. I love these boots. They are my go to footwear this winter for just going to and from places. You could probably even wear them if you're scooping snow, provided it isn't too deep.
You will be hard pressed to find a better boot for the money.
