Comments about OBOZ Men's Wind River II Waterproof Hiking Boots, Brindle:
These are extremely solid boots. Have walked about 20 miles in them so far and I feel I haven't broken them in, not even slightly. Luckily when first putting them on they do feel good. The initial comfort and support are pros for these boots.
They take some getting used to as the soles are quite tall and feel somewhat narrow. Kind of like walking on platform shoes.
Your feet will get hot in them. Not breathable at all. I presume that's all due to them being waterproof. So a pair of good moisture-wicking socks are essential. The other problem is they rub hard around the shin as the tongue and top part of the boot are very very stiff. One other rub point, on top of the joint in my right big toe gave me a blister, but I think with some more wear it'll smooth up the interior that was rubbing my skin. The way the heel support is constructed I'm sure a heel blister will never occur and the ankle support is great for uneven terrain.
So the bottom line is I don't love them nor do I hate them. Hoping they'll ease up for me for years of use to come. 3 1/2 stars...
Also, not sure why the laces that come with them are so long..
