I was expecting a well fitting hiking boot but unfortunately, It just did not have the comfort level I would have expected the insole was in my opinion shaped unusually with the arch on the wrong side of the foot arch so it felt weird from the get-go. And also the insole was very hard & unforgiving with very little cushioning making for a flip flop kind of walk. I had to swap over the insoles and that made it somewhat better but I am reluctant to wear these boots again. I would give it points for it's waterproofing and I like the way it's got the reflective on the hill that's a great idea at night. I don't think I would buy these boots again I would probably give them about a 6 out of 10. I probably should not compare them to but I have a pair of keen mid venture hiking boots. They would rate about a 9 out of 10. They are the ones I took the insoles out and put them into the Targee.
