Tips for the Perfect Fit

  • Measure both feet. If one foot is slightly larger than the other, select a size that fits the larger of the two.
  • Consider the type of socks you’ll be wearing with your boot. For thicker socks, you may want to select a half size larger than you normally wear.
  • When you do receive your boots, we recommend first wearing them indoors for a few hours to ensure they’re the right fit.

Free Return Shipping
Rest assured that if the boot you receive doesn’t fit correctly, we pay for return shipping back to us. You can order with confidence knowing return shipping is always on us.

    Superior Boot

    By SSG U.S. Army

    from Dover, OH

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Comfort
    • Durabilty
    • Waterproofing

    Cons

    • none

    Best Uses

    • Hiking

    I wore these boots in Afghanistan for a year. They were by far the best boots I have used in the Army in 16yrs. The sole is durable yet comfortable and they stood up to the terrain of Afghanistan. I was exposed to all types of elements and these boots took them all, never once did my feet get wet. I would recommend these boots to anyone without hesitation.

    These boots are absolutely worth every penny. Built like a tank, yet very light and comfortable. There is not comparison to these boots so don't even bother looking. I would recommend these boots to anyone that works hard and plays hard. I've worn them to the range, while working, and outdoors. There is nothing negative that I can say about these boots.

    Sierra and Grand Canyon tested

    By Yuma Pav

    from Yuma, AZ

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Bullet proof
    • HIKING
    • Rugged
    • Waterproof

    Cons

    • NARROW

    Best Uses

    • Hiking

    I have been hiking in these shoes for one year and I do believe they are indestructible. In the past I have wore out at least two pair of hiking boots in the same amount of time. I am a backcountry guide and SAR at the Grand Canyon and in the Sierra Nevadas and have nothing but good to say about these boots. My only downside is that I have a wide foot and found these too be a little narrow. To compensate for my feet and the boot construction I use silk sock liners and I put shoes trees in after my hikes.....no problem!
    I think I can get at least two more years out of these boots and they only get more comfortable.

    The Jeep of boots

    By Subzero

    from Pennsylvania

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • All-weather
    • Comfortable
    • Indestructible

    Cons

    • A little stiff

    Best Uses

    • Any terrain
    • Cold weather

    I also wore these for a year in Afghanistan. I walked a great many miles over any and all types of terrain and up and down mountains. Paired with thick wool socks I never got any blisters and miraculously my feet never got wet or cold.
    With these boots on, my feet felt as if they were indestructible.
    I also wore them in icy snowy slushy sub zero conditions and felt toasty warm (or at least not freezing... There are limits to any piece of gear).
    Possibly the best cold weather boots I've ever worn.
    The only thing I would improve would be to make the soles less stiff. Took a while to break in.

    Great Boot

    By Jay

    from NC

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Comfortable
    • Made in USA
    • Quality construction
    • True to size

    Cons

    • none

    Best Uses

    • Backpacking
    • Casual
    • Hiking

    Bought these a week after I got my Quarry USAs, Same Last, same fit. This is a very well made boot, very stable under foot and should support fairly heavy loads. Will be taking them on a 6 mile test run up very steep granite. Test so far demonstrate the boot to be very sticky/great on rock surfaces and standard trails.
