RedHead® Gaston Hiker Shoes for Men
I really thought this was a great boot for $40
Seemed to hold up well, wide footing, nice tread, grips well.
So the upper is a little soft which means it does not have good support but not a deal killer.
Here's the problem, they get hot in the sun. I mean the sun penetrates the boot and basically gets hot enough to "burn" you foot. Not burn like a sun burn, but stay there long enough and your feet are cooking.
Before you get to thinking I was in the desert, I was in the San Diego area in 78 degree weather. Sure the sun can be strong but my hands and head weren't burning.

Great outdoor shoe
I just picked these up today and so far I am impressed. I intend to use these for everything from scouting to hiking to yard work and now that I'm wearing them, I think they will fit the bill perfectly. I was specifically looking for something rugged yet lightweight and breathable that I can wear almost year round in dry-to-damp conditions. These turned out to be just what I was looking for and the price can't be beat. They are very comfortable out of the box. The suede on mine is a little bit darker than the suede in the picture - which for me was a plus. A word of warning: these run really big. I wear an 11 or 11.5 in tennis shoes and a 12 in Redhead hunting boots but I had to get these in a 10!

I just bought these and have only worn them couple times. Very comfortable and lighweight. They feel great when walking. Cant wait to take them hiking. Great shoes! I only gave them 4 stars cuz I just bought them and havent seen the durability or worn them for long periods yet. I think theyll be fine tho.

I am very satisfied w/my new boots, they are comfortable from the git go. Break in not needed. I would buy them again.
