Pros

  • Poor

Cons

  • The whole bottom of both boots came off

The poorest pair of boots I ever got or bought.

Summary

Perhaps the most NON-durable shoe I've ever purchased.

Pros

  • "Inexpensive" if you don't mind wasting money

Cons

  • Incredibly poor materials that do NOT hold up at all

Didn't realize that such poor and UN-durable quality shoes would be sold at a "reputable" store like Wal-Mart.  I bought them some time back but have hardly used them and the waffle like cushion under the heel totally deteriorated and the sole of the heel split. The uppers look like new but the material used is so sub-standard.  It will be my last pair of Ozark shoes as well.

Summary

Total junk.

Pros

  • Cheap

Cons

  • Cheaply made
  • Lasts a month or two at most
  • Poor rubber quality for soles

They last about 2 months if you're lucky and then the heels split and wear through and the soles crack. I have owned multiple pairs and they never last more than a few months. I'll NEVER buy this brand again....EVER.

Do yourself a favor and steer clear of this brand, unless you like buying shoes every few months.

Summary

Owned my shoes for 9 years. Wear them every day. Best and most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever owned.

Pros

  • Very comfortable
  • Long lasting
  • Reasonable price

Cons

  • No complaints

Have owned my Ozark Trail slip on shoes for at least 9 years, yeah they have finally worn out. On here looking for another pair and saw these reviews, guess I just got a good pair. I have been completely happy with mine and couldn't have ask for anything better, especially for the price.

Wore my shoes everyday while I was at home, sitting around or working around the house. Sure hope I can find another pair just like them.

Summary

The metal string guides continue to fray strings causing them to break. Eyelets would have been a great alternative. Otherwise, shoes are terrific, good fit, water proof and long lasting.

Pros

  • Comfort
  • Waterproof
  • Good support

Cons

  • Metal shoestring guides fray strings and cause them to break

Summary

I bought my boots 4 weeks ago from Walmart, and they split along the bottom on the side. Tried finding reciept and couldn't, Walmart refused to do anything for me. I paid 40 dollars for these boots and might as well just threw my money out the window.

Cracked along the bottom and support fell out only after 4 weeks. Walmart refuses to do anything to replace them.

Summary

A $50 price tag and an easy return policy doesn't do you any good in the middle of the White Mountains. The pair of Ozark Trail boots I bought at Walmart are worse than useless. I wouldn't get another pair if they paid me.

Pros

  • Quick break-in
  • Lace loops are solid

Cons

  • Sole might as well been made of styrofoam

After only one month of occasional wear, and one pass over a mountain, the sole separated from the toe. Also, the sole split and the arch supports fell out. If the hostel I stopped at didn't have used shoes for the taking, I would have had to get a ride 25 miles into town for another pair.

If you're looking for something reliable, I wouldn't recommend getting anything from Walmart. If you want to buy a pair of shoes and trade them in every two weeks, then I would recommend Walmart. However my impression of the quality of products at Walmart and from Ozark Trail has been tainted.

Summary

I bought these shoes for $48 thinking they would get me at least a year's worth of hiking, but found out they would only last me 5 days. Both shoes were cracked down the middle.

Pros

  • nothing

Cons

  • expensive in price but cheap in quality.

I don't recommend these shoes to anyone! For the same price I have gotten army hiking boots which have lasted me over a year since.

I used to rave about Ozark Trail's products but sence I bought the last pair of boot's that I will

ever buy from Ozark Trail . I didn't have these boots 10dy's when Ihad to glue the sole of the

left boot back on, and in less then 1mo. later that same sole the rubber has worn off.

Now  I wouldn't mind so much but I am not the only one getting ripped off . If I were a rich man

I'd be buying the best, but I'm not. This is why I shop at stores that I can afford to shop.

Living on Social Security disablity it is hard to just go pay top quality prises for top of the line

products . I can't say for sure what the problem is, but I remember that Ozark Trail at one time

was a top of the line product with affordable pricing, now it seems that it has gotten like

everything else in this country, they want more money for a cheeper quality product.

Just so you know I am not the only one having problems with this product.

Not even worth rating this product. No quality to rate.

I purchased a pair of Ozark men's water shoes July 3, 2011 from their exclusive marketeer, WAL-MART. Wore them three times and then the whole shoe fell apart resulting in me taking a fall to the ground. Could hardly walk the next day from the pain and discomfort.

Contacted WAL-MART customer service this morning, did a little fishing first and was informed that I am not the first to report a total failure of Ozark shoes sold exclusively at WAL-MART.

Cannot believe that a real business would continue to sell these poor quality products after what appears to be numerous issues with failure over many years.

Anyone listening at WAL-MART?

I bought these shoes while on vacation. At the time they looked great, but now I realize they are a complete piece of sh*t. I had these pieces of sh*t for two weeks before they broke! They broke where the material meets the sole.

These screwed me over. Worst shoe ever, I will never buy these crappy shoes again. Don't buy this piece of crap! $12 gone to waste. I can only imagine Jesus' review.

This is my husband's 2nd pair of Ozark's. We are very dissatisfied with the product as both pairs have split apart.

The 1st pair broke apart after 3 weeks and the 2nd pair have lasted just about 2 weeks. Soles are splitting in half.

Do not buy this product. Wal-mart needs to find a better product to promote.

I fully understand the complaints, My husband and I both bought a pair I started wearing mine first in the first week I could feel then bottom of the shoe, in the next 2 weeks the sole on the bottom and the heal began to split. I though it was just one bad pair his did the same thing.

I will never buy not only the Ozark Trail shoes but any shoe from Walmart period. As far as I am concerned they can sell their China crap in China.

Rating: rated 0 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $50 ?

Gee, Folks

I bought my Ozark Trail slip-on "hikers" about 6 years ago, and only now are the soles wearing-through, with slight separation from the suede upper on one shoe. During duty time I do, of course, wear combat boots, but my Ozarks are my only "civie" pair of shoes, and they have been exposed to some pretty harsh environments ranging from Alaska to Iraq, though I do try to avoid getting them wet.

I cannot recall which "model" of shoe these Ozarks are (most of the tags and labels have worn unreadable, except "Made In China"), but I thought I'd look for another pair to replace these. After reading all the current reviews, maybe not ...

Brought these boots from Walmart just over a month ago and you would think I've had them for 2 years! The back sole is ripped half off, the inside sole you can see right through. Use to buying boots once a year not once a month! Now thanks to this miserable boot I must wear these unprotected boots until I can save up some extra money. I'm not rich, hope I don't get hurt at work.

I got a pair of these at WalMart. Looked solid, waterproof, etc. They didn't last through 20 days of wear! Crappy cardboard layer between inside lining and sole of the shoe crumbled, and the shoe's rubber sole cracked in multiple locations! Thankfully, WalMart did refund my money! These were not subjected to heavy wear, and I'm a skinny guy so my weight wasn't a problem. They are just pure JUNK!

Wish I had looked at the reviews before paying fore this boot, guess Ozark gear and Wal-mart think that the consumer don't matter. If this is the quality of Ozark gear they will be out of business soon.

The boot did not last thirty days before the side split open from becoming wet. If this is the type of products they sell it will not be long before they go out of business. You can count on me not buying another product with their name on it.

Complete junk and should never have been placed on the market. Trash like this is making you (Ozark Trail) look bad. Wal-mart won't even take em back. Sending them back to (Ozark Trail) costs more than they are worth. Even if they sent me a new pair they would only last 2 weeks if I was lucky, then I'd be disappointed again.

Okay, the shoe at first looked tempting to buy. It was comfortable for the first 3 months I had it, and I use it for everything, outdoor hiking, going on trips. I even wore them to the beach. But ALREADY, the shoe bottom is worn down to nothing and peeling off! Yeah, WAL-MART would sell these for sure.
