Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Poor fit, but light weight and waterproof. I have a hard time understanding the other reviews. I bought mine at an authorized dealer. Trying them on with heavy socks, they felt very comfortable. Problem is that after wearing them for maybe 15 hours, they became way too wide. My heaviest socks did not help at all. I live in a very hilly part of southern Oregon, and working around home, my foot slides around inside the boot making it very difficult and fatiguing walking on an incline. Mine are my usual Red Wing size 11B, but these boots are not narrow width. It may be because the Chinese last is considered narrow there, or too much stretching of the leather. They are comfortable in the garage and other flat surfaces, but so are slippers. If you have a narrow foot, the B width will feel like a D or E. I will never use these for hunting! December 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Boundary waters and beyond I bought these boots for a trip into the boundary waters in northern Minnesota. They made the portages from lake to lake easy and dry. I don't wear them daily but they are comfortable enough to do so. I bought them in 2007 and it's 2015 and I just ordered another pair. They used to be #8681, now they are #8683. GREAT Boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable to wear I camp a lot with scouts and don't always have time to break in new boots. I'm on my 2nd pair of these and getting ready for a 3rd. They are comfortable to wear on day 1 and only get better. March 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by These boots have lasted over 2 years I weigh 300 pounds and I work in a scrap yard. Rain or shine I have worn these boots for over two years and they are still good and comfortable. January 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by comfortable on my feet I'm a school bus driver in the Florida panhandle area and will often wear these boots for 13 hours a day. In my area, summers are very hot and humid so I appreciate that these boots breath. It rains here a lot so I like the boots being water proof. These boots remain comfortable on my feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by long lasting I've had these boots since early 2011. I weigh anywhere from 265-275, I work as an automobile technician. 5 days a week. these boots have completely fell apart after in the last 7 months.........I LOVE THEM!!!!!!! the insole I guess wore out from the use this past year and I purchased one of the Dr. Scholls' from the machine at Walmart and doing that rejuvenated the boots till now. They are still as comfortable as the day I bought them. the only reason I'm getting new ones is because my wife won't let me bring them into the house any-longer and I don't like leaving my shoes outside for fear something may crawl in and make a home. THE BOOTS ARE STILL WATERPROOF!!!!! May 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Boot Ultimate in comfort for long days. The soles of the boots are just the right build. Not too hard, not too soft.Leather looks good, and holds up well. April 16, 2014
