Ok, this boot is comfortable, as long as you stay on flat ground. Beyond that I cannot recommend this for serious offtrail hunters. I bought these for hunting elk, & I am a serious hunter who goes where the elk are, which is steep & rugged country. They were not up to the task. First off, the width is much too wide for my normal "D" sized foot. No matter how tight I pulled on shoe strings, I couldn't get a tight fit. Consequently my foot slid around inside the boot when traversing across steep (& also not-so-steep) hillsides, causing quite uncomfortable foot jamming. When walking across those steep hillsides, you need to dig the upper edge of soles into ground to keep from slipping. These boots offered little or no sideway support to do that: instead the soft leather allowed your foot to roll downhill, lossing the upper sole contact, thus slippage downslope. A few minutes of this sidehill walking only made the lower leather to soften more, further asservating the problem. Also, the tread design doesn't work well, even though they look aggressive. They would not hold on snow covered grassy slopes. Part of problem with the tread is likely due to the formentioned poor side support, but I found even when going straight up a snowy slope, they did not hold well. Sorry, but I am retiring these boots after only 2 times out (I didn't learn the 1st time) & will be looking for a brand name boot I've used in past & can depend on.
