If you have really wide, hard to fit feet, this is your hiking boot. It is simply the only hiking boot I can find that fits without crushing my little toe. Stiff enough support to use with a 50lb. pack.

I use mine with SuperStep insoles, so I cannot vouch for the cheap insoles they come with.

They seem to run shorter than normal sizes, so I went up a full size.

They are advertised as "waterproof," but that just means they are made of leather with some oil on it. Mine have never leaked in just rain or stream crossings, but walking through snow with them will saturate the leather and overwhelm any waterproofing.

I have run mine into the ground in about 4 years of hiking, so I'm looking to buy another pair. Durability is not their strong suit, but they are so cheap you can afford to replace them several times over.

Materials: leather
Use: wide feet
Break-in Period: not bad
Weight: 3lbs, 2 oz (for size 11.5)
Price Paid: Not much

The boots fit my wide feet and felt cushy enough but after a few miles down hills around Mt. Rainier I could feel my toes going against the toe of the boots. This is due to the boot having too much volume in that area (probably could be remedied with some proper insoles) but you get what you pay for.
