      Comments about AHNU Women's Montara WP Hiking Boots, Astral Aura:

      I was so excited when I received my boots- they were super comfortable and fit well immediately and never gave me blisters. However, I have had these boots for only a few months and they are breaking down. I have worn them less than 2x/mo. They are no longer waterproof and they are falling apart at the seams and no longer usable for my weekend treks. I am incredibly disappointed. I was hoping they would last at least a few years instead of just a few months.

        These boots kept me warm, dry, stable, and comfortable all day on steep, rocky terrain, and mountain trails throughout while hiking the hills, coasts, and mountains of northern California.

        Comments about AHNU Women's Montara WP Hiking Boots, Astral Aura:

        I bought these a little over a year ago and wore them on a 2-night backpacking trip and a few day hikes, totaling maybe 50-60 miles. I then noticed the stitching on the toe of the left boot was coming out. I hoped it was only cosmetic but maybe 10 miles into my next backpacking trip I noticed that the sole was coming away from the left boot and more stitching was coming undone on both boots. I later met someone with the same boots, and hers had the same problems. I brought them back to EMS not sure if they would take them back, but I was pleasantly surprised to receive a full refund. Love EMS, but not these boots (even though they were extremely comfortable and look really cool).

          I walked around in these for two days to break them in and I forgot I was wearing boots they were so comfortable and lightweight. That is saying alot for hiking boots.

            Great boots for the price. I've used them on day hikes as well as multiday backpacking trips in the Northeast. From climbing granite tops to trudging through wet forests, these boots are perfect. No problems with waterproofing.

              The first time I wore these the grommet came off at the shoelace, EMS exchanged them and they have been perfect ever since. I have owned them for over a year, warm about 20 times. Used for heavy duty walking/hiking.

                Comments about AHNU Women's Montara WP Hiking Boots, Astral Aura:

                My friend had this boot and recommended it - so I bought it. They felt a bit tight in the store but the sales rep told me they would stretch out - which I think is a reasonable statement if the boot is worn constantly and really broken in. Also, in my experience, it's better to have a snug boot than one that's too big. However, after several hikes, this boot still feels much too small and is a real pain to wear on descents. I have wiped out at least once on every hike due to complete lack of traction. If there is even the slightest amount of moisture on the sole, you can and will slip on any surface that is other than completely flat. I have not had this problem with other boots. Lastly, I wore these during the last snowstorm out of desperation, and within 20 minutes they were soaked through. I acknowledge that a small amount of snow over-topped the boot and got in, but my entire foot was wet, so I'm going to conclude the boot is not as waterproof as advertised. I'm disappointed...although the color is fantastic.

                  I bought this boot for hiking easy trails. I like the way they look and fit so well, I've been wearing them more as a casual boot with jeans instead! Will still wear them for hiking since they are so comfortable.

                    I love everything about these boots. Went hiking in the Adirondacks with these boots, the only breaking in was walking around in my home the night before. I had a wonderful time and best of all no blisters or bruises on my feet thanks to these comfortable boots.
