RedHead® Gaston Hiker Shoes for Men
This is one pair of very comfortable hiking shoes. I started hiking on them right out of the box and didn't need any break in period. I was doing some serious hiking and totaled about 100-120 miles in 6-7 months before wearing out the bottom and now I am on my second pair (and bought a third pair too). Highly recommend them... and the price is excellent too,

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.

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