    Great boot - Narrow! - 12/2/2014
    By: from Chicago, IL

    Disappointed I couldn't wear this outstanding boot. It's sized narrow. I typically wear a D and this boot was much too tight. Sorry it didn't work for me since it looked terrific.

    Best Boots I've Owned - 11/9/2014
    By: from Denver, CO

    I have a passion for upland birds and pointing dogs. It's amazing how thick CRP and stubble will destroy a pair of boots in a season...except these boots. They are bullet proof and comfortable. So comfortable, I actually wore them on a 9 day, DIY elk hunt in the Colorado Rockies in Sept. 2014. They are worth the money. Buy a pair.

    Great so far - 10/3/2014
    By: from Pacific, MO

    I purchased these boots for a late October pheasant hunt in South Dakota. I've been wearing them for the last month to "break them in". I quote that because break in is really only about an hour. I've worn them in mud and rain and so far they have been completely dry. I have worn them on 90 degree days with pants and they did not feel uncomfortably hot. They are also a great looking boot that doesn't look out of place in social settings.

    Awesome - 9/30/2014
    By: from Atlanta and South Africa

    These must be one of the best boots I have ever bought. They are extremely comfortable and even after a long days walk behind the dogs your feet feel great. They give you a feeling of stability and agility at the same time and I would highly recommend these boots for any upland hunting.

    Top of Line Quail Hunting Boot - 9/24/2014
    By: from South Carolina

    These boot are excellent for what I purchased them for and that is to hunt quail. Quail hunting requires a lot of walking in some pretty tough terrain. They being water proof really adds to the quality these boots represents. Would recommend them to any family member and to friends who require quality and good looks.

    Great Boots - 9/24/2014

    ordered my first pair three years ago for hunting boots. They were so comfortable i started wearing them to work everyday. I work in the trades so they were really abused and lasted three years. No cow hide boot ever lasted that long. A little pricey, but awesome boot, cant wait until my next pair gets here.

    Could have been a great one, but I don't think so. - 9/2/2014
    By: from Hamilton, VA

    I was looking for the ultimate upland boot. This could have been it. It had all the features externally: Great design, great materials, well made, light weight. Internally, a complete failure! Reviewers are binary in opinion: these boots either fit you, or they torture you with guarenteed blisters especially along the heel area. With modern ergonomic footware technology advances in running shoes, Orvis should invest in redesigning the insides of these boots to achieve their destiny as the finest upland boot available. Until then, I'm forced to return mine and buy another, more advanced, design.

    So Far So Good - 8/28/2014
    By: from South Alabama

    I've had these boots for a little over a week and have not been able to wear them enough to fully break them in yet, but they are very comfortable out of the box. The first thing I noticed is how much lighter they were than my previous pair of upland boots. They are a little snug right now but they are stretching out and I have no doubt they will be very comfortable in the days to come.

    Lightweight and dry - 8/27/2014
    By: from Greenville, SC

    I have only worn these boots a few times, but they are light and dry. Break in period was minimal. One occasion was the 6 mile trek for an overnight at Mt. LeConte in Tennessee. The goretex lining certainly kept water out, but these are not as breathable as the traditional Gokey upland boots or Russell South 40s. It just doesn't seem to breathe like all-leather boots. However, I plan to use these boots mostly for quail hunting in Thomasville, Georgia. So I will update the review after a season in the south Ga briars. Hopefully, with a good coat of Obenauf's they'll hold up just fine. Snake Armour lining would be a welcome addition.
