RedHead Everest Hikers for Men
I am from Montana and this boot probably wouldn't last more than a day or two in the mountains. It looks good but is not built strong enough for hiking in rocks. I never went hiking in these and only used them walking the dogs. The "leather" uppers just started coming apart After a month, there is a two to three inch hole on the side of the left boot and the threading on both toes came apart. When walking over small rocks, it is felt on the bottom of the foot. This is a very light duty shoe so I don't recommend buying them to hit the trails especially in rocky terrain!

50 miles and very happy
I have hiked roughly 50 miles in these shoes over the last five weeks - on the Appalachian Trail, in fields and on roads - but no more than 5 miles at any one time. These boots are great! They are surprisingly light and feel very sturdy with no signs of wear yet. They offer good ankle support for rock-strewn trails and the non-skid soles work well in muddy areas and on asphalt roads. My feet do not hurt after a five mile hike!
I wear a size 10 sneaker and size 11 work boot. I ordered these in a 10.5. That works perfectly with a thick sock over a normal cotton sock. I re-laced them to aleviate the manufacturer's goofy lacing scheme. Now they are easy to get on and off my feet, and easy to string tight enough for the Appalachian Trail. In summary, buy them a half size larger than your sneakers and re-lace them when they arrive. You'll love these boots!

The price induced me to try the hiking boots, and I am glad I did. The comfort, fit and finish convinced me that they were a great choice. They are pretty water-resistant, even though they were not sold as water proof. I wore them in snow several times recently, and they kept me dry and warm. The traction in the snow was better than many others I've used.
They provide good support to my old, tired feet. The orthopedic insoles really help me. The stated size was accurate.
They were a better deal than I could get at my local big-box store. I would recommend these Everest Hikers without reservation.

I work outdoors in my yard business. Tried these because I needed high top support and some footwear that was light but rugged. They did SO well, I bought another pair and may yet get more at this price. Great Buy!!!!
