This is the lightest most comfortable boot I have had the pleasure to wear in 25 years. Breathes well in the heat and my feet feel great at the end of a 12 hour shift.

Lightweight, comfortable, functional
This was the first pair of boots I've ever bought online (at a big discount on Woot). So I was concerned about the fit (I'm a size 12US but nowadays, manufacturer depending, sizing can be anywhere from an 11.5 to a 13). Got the boots and started immediately wearing them: casually for weekends and at work when in jeans. The make and fit are very good. Sturdy yet flexible. Very lightweight-- the same or less as wearing basketball sneakers. My use is basically casual but I will most-likely start wearing them for light trail hiking (as a substitute for my Merrells). Only fit issue I've come across is that, with thinner socks, the outside leather heel part can rub on your ankle and make it sore. So I generally recommend thicker socks... but you'd do the same with hiking boots. Very happy.

Excellent boots
Recently boot these boots and I must say they are extremely comfortable. Very light weight and supportive and they seem to "breath" well.
