Rated 1 out of 5 by Trapper59 Save your money This has to be one of the worst purchases I have ever made. I should have read the reviews first. I was in the store and they were on sale for $29.99 so I purchases a pair. They didn't feel too bad in the store and thought they would break in. Well they didn't, in fact they got worse. No ankle support at all, very thin soles that let you feel every little thing you step on, and not waterproof at all, even the dew soaks through from wet grass. I gave up on them for hunting/hiking boots and was just going to keep them for yard work, but even after an hour of wearing them for that my arches, toes and ankles hurt. Do Not Buy These!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by PWBHJ Just Plain Awful I couldn't resist buying these on sale for $29.95 at the local BPS. After a light 4 mile hike in Hocking Hills, I quickly came to realize what a mistake I made. First of all, the soles are unbelievably thin -- you can feel every pebble and stone under your feet. Secondly, they are NOT waterproof! Thirdly, they already look like they are 5 years old. Don't make the mistake I did and steer clear of these horrible boots. Cheaper is definitely not better in this case. April 27, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by wfitz There light weight Needless to say I have returned the RedHeads, the right side was comfortable ,but the left was tight. I guess when you buy a name you never heard of that is what happens. April 5, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by MIDeerHunter2012 Save your cash These hikers are not worth half of what the cost is for them. They may look like a good deal, but it it looks to good to be true it likely is. And these definitely fit that description. The soles are extremely thin and very flexible. What this means is that you will feel every pebble you step on, and your feet will really be unhappy if you step on something hard and sharp. It will come right through the sole. Walk in these for any length of time and your feet will be very sore and tired. You might be better off barefoot. The nubs that are supposed to provide traction on the sole are not attached integrally to the sole, and have a tendency to simply fall off over time. The little metal nubs that are used as eyelets (there is probably a name for them but I do not know what it is) near the top of the shoe have very sharp edges. So, after tying your shoes a relatively small number of times you will very likely slice right thru your shoelace. This can be extremely frustrating if you are out on a long hike at the time. They are supposed to be waterproof, but do not keep water out very effectively at all. Even walking thru grass wet with dew tends to get your feet wet, let alone actually stepping in puddles or shallow streams. I bought a pair of these for myself and my son, and I sure wish I could have given them back. Pay more and get a name brand shoe. Anything you get will be better than these. March 23, 2012

Details:Hi - i ordered regarding the sizingchart a pair of hiking boots - i normally wear the size 9.5 or 10 - this time no item was right
tennis shoes 9,5 TO SMALL
hiking boots 10 - atleast one size too small
i will check this item -my question :
are they biger in size as other brands ?
i am shure u know, that the sizes changes between brands.
A:I normally wear a man's size 10.5M athletic shoe, and that is what I ordered. They fit fine if I wear heavy socks.
A:I normally wear a 9 in just about every other shoe, but I am very comfortable in an 8 in this boot. Even 8.5 was too big. Based on that, I would say they run large.
A:different styles carry different sizes even though your size was 9.5 if the shoe was not a well known brand, then the size will be a slight smaller
A:sometimes you would need to check on the width, the size might be right but to narrow
A:First - can I come visit you??? I love the Alps but live in Houston, Texas :-(
To get a good fit in the Caliber you have to try them on. Different boots seem to vary in size but who knows why. Lower price boots do not have consistent sizing.
A:Yes, I know sizes are different among brands. However, other catalogs note whether or not to order size larger or smaller.
