Ozark Trail Tyrell

rated 2.0 of 5 stars

I bought Kayak II Ozark Trails Tennis Shoes in 2008 - just discarded them today after 4 years, 8 countries, and 4 continents of wearing them! They were awesome.


  • See above


  • none

I wish I could find another pair identical to them, but sadly Walmart doesn't know when they have a good thing. Note all the best reviews above have been on discontinued shoes.  

I loved the style as well — so what's wrong with Walmart??? I suppose they want to sell shoes that fall apart faster so we can buy more. They're wrong — I won't buy them!

The insoles disintegrate in a very short time.


  • Decent value at first
  • Decent traction


  • Very poor craftsmanship
  • Insoles cave in on themselves

I bought a pair of these and a pair of Ozark Trail Judd hiking boots at the same time and they both have the same problem, the insoles are so far gone that I can see the inside of the outer sole from looking inside through shoe and not moving anything.

I have only owned them for about 2 1/2wks. The craftsmanship and durability are VERY POOR !!!!!!!

I have had my Ozark shoes for 3 years now and I love them.


  • comfortable
  • lasts a long time

I have had my Ozark shoes for 3 years now and I love them. They are still comfortable like when I first got them. I have worn then hiking through the woods and just walking anywhere.

I really love these shoes, but I hate that so many people have had a bad time with theirs. However, I still would love to buy another pair.

I bought my husband these boots from Walmart. They were Ozark Trail men Hikers, shoe name is Tyrell.

What a piece of crap shoe. The bottom of the heel cracked in less then two weeks. I paid $30 for them. I was hoping to them at least last 6 months.

I know people say buy better shoes, well when you are unemployed, you have to watch what you are spending....I am pissed. I hope no one buys the crappy product again.

I bought the boots for hunting season in the hills of Kentucky. I needed a rugged but flexible shoe that I could walk quietly in but also face rugged terrain and mud.

The first week of wearing the shoe the insides gave out within a couple of days. I returned them for another pair only to find the same thing happened to the next pair on my first hiking trip. They have a weak insole.

Price Paid: $30

I bought a pair of these at Walmart and within 2 months the shoes cracked and ripped on the sides. I do a lot of walking and bending.The bottom sole cracked across and the balm of my boot is cracking. I was very disappointed in this product and will not be purchasing anymore.

Bought a pair of these boots and on the second day the inserts started to fall into the recesses of the rubber soles. After four days the soles cracked, and after one week they went into the trash. 

Will never waste my money on Walmart's bargain shoes again.

Price Paid: $25


Do not buy these shoes. They didn't even make it through two days of work. The soles started to come off in the middle of the second day.
