Very hard to fit feet. Wide and flat with a skinny heal. Shaped like a slice of pizza (thanks Shannon). Tried several pairs and none were as comfy as these. No kidding, the difference is immense between manufacturers and even models within same manufacturer. These look very much like the Scout model, but when I tried those, somehow they did not fit like a glove even though they were quite comfy. The Sareks are perfect. Very good lateral support, and not too much break in time. No blisters or hot spots either. Even though I have very flat feet that get tired, they did not tire in the boots! Amazing. These boots may be pricey but I really like the fit and comfort.
