Rated 2 out of 5 by Tuscarora Disappointing!
After having worn (and killed during ADK 46 High Peaks pursuit) my Keen Targhee boots, I needed a new pair of boots and these looked perfect. The Keens weren't very waterproof to begin with and over time I became resigned to wet feet. I really wanted to like these Oboz boots---the classic look, grippy tread, the promise of waterproof. However, they have a weird fit & feel. It's hard to describe, but when standing in them I feel out of alignment. And the sole is so thick---which could be nice and cushiony on downhills---it feels too thick and removed from contact with the ground. The tongue is also very thick and bulky---it feels as though it could cause blisters. Overall, the boots felt stiff and needing a lot of break in time. If you are used to the Keen fit and comfort, I would not recommend these boots.

I ordered these hiking boots after losing my old ones. It's been about 5 years since I've gone on a good trip so these shoes were a god send.
MY normal size is a 10 so I went with the 11 and it fit perfectly. The mid top of the shoe supports my ankles fantastically, even as I step over slippery rocks and muddy hills.
I did a 7 mile hike down in Virginia called The Devils Bathtub and they stayed dry even through a torrential down pour. They stayed dry even when I stepped in the creek on accident. But they did not stay dry when I jumped head to toe in a watering hole. lol.
Even still, after dumping the water out of them my feet NEVER developed blisters and despite being wet did not hurt my feet.
I would recommend these shoes to a friend.

These boots are great! Wonderful fit...the boots feel as they were made just for my feet. No need to break in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goingforawalk Comfortable and waterproof - love these boots!
Walked miles in them the first outing with complete ease through melting snow and inches of slush. Feet completely dry and comfortable. Light boot. Great purchase. Agree with getting 1/2 size bigger if you prefer heavy socks.

Incredibly comfortable boot for walking and hiking. Went up a half size to accommodate a heavier sock, but the fit is great and required no 'breaking in' period. I put them on and immediately went for a brisk 3 mile walk with no problems. Not insulated, but wore them yesterday with temps in the single digits and my feet were toasty warm.

I ordered 1/2 size up after reading other reviews and it was a perfect fit. Didn't have any break in time and it was comfortable right out of the box. Purchased them for a trip to Europe but I have been using them to walk the dogs every day.

Once I got one with the right size and fit, they were comfortable. The first pair were a size 10 (my normal size) but, felt to tight. I returned them and got an 11. The larger size boot was a better fit and more comfortable for my feet. No problems the first hike I did with them. No need for break in.
