Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Other products we considered,
With the cute color options available in this boot, you can walk through the woods in style. They’re also incredibly comfortable and durable. This boot has a higher shaft than some of the others at 5 inches, which means you’ll have plenty of material to wrap around the ankle and keep it from turning or twisting.
Starting at under $40, these affordable hiking boots offer similar waterproof leather and mesh detailing as pricier picks.
The boots are tight enough to secure the feet and leave enough room for you to put some warm socks. These are long lasting boots and they feel durable as a boot, but look like nice, comfortable tennis shoes. The boots give good arch support and give me confidence when I hike. I also take them daily at work and not even once they gave me blisters or sore feet.

What reviewers didn't like

Few features.
The arch support should be improved. They are too wide for regular feet. They need a break in period. The quality of laces could be better.
