RedHead® Roark Waterproof Hiking Boots for Men
Good fit for Son
I bought these for me, but the width wasn't wide enough, gave them to my son and he loves them. Good boot for the money, just didn't fit me. Son loves them.

Great for the price
I purchased these boots essentially for the price but also for the intended purpose. I wear heavy logger type boots most everyday and wanted to give my feet a break. I really don't intend to hike much in them...therefore I think more expensive boots would be better for that. These boots are very comfortable within the foot bed. The ankle area leaves a little to be desired unless you really tighten down on the strings. They look good and wear good so I would recommend them.

So far these hiking boots are good. No problems and they are comfortable.

I ordered these boots on line after visiting a Bass Pro Shops while on a Business trip this past spring. I had a gift card and Bass Pro Shops is not located in my home city. I tried on 7-8 different brands of Hiking Boots and these, although they didn't have my exact size in that store, were the most comfortable fit for my wide foot.
Once I received the boots, I immediately installed a pair of Dr Scholls gel insoles. My first hike in these boots as well as the last 15 or so hikes have been fantastic. No blisters, my feet stayed comfortable, and even though I have not submerged them, the feet stayed dry from wet grass and puddles. They have also worn very well to date.
Other than fit, the most important thing I like about this boot is the ankle support. I had a problem with my older hiking shoes of periodically turning an ankle over partially buried rocks and exposed tree roots. That hasn't occurred a single time with these boots. The ankle support is as good now as the first time I wore the boots.
These go on sale periodically and for the price I payed with the promotion discount, the value is absolutely fantastic. I am considering watching for another sale and ordering a second pair.
