Bought this boot for hiking on rocky terrain through TX, ranging between six to 12 miles at a time. Found many good reviews online for this specific model. Desired to have shoes with good grip and water resistance, and these boots claimed so. Believe the boots are true to size and as others say, there is no breaking in required. I didn't size up 1/2 and felt that was okay with the fit, even with very thick winter hiking socks. My feet were comfortable (padding wise) and my toes weren't squished. On wet terrain my feet stayed dry. BUT after a few months the toe protector on one shoe slightly peeled back. These shoes have a one year warranty, but I chose to stick them out since the damage was slight. Around month seven I took them on a very muddy 12 mile hike. When the shoes dried I noticed the toe protector was significantly peeled back. I mailed the shoes in to Ahnu for an evaluation. I'm convinced it was an uncommon manufacturing defect. I was told it could take three weeks for the evaluation, but I received brand new replacement boots in two weeks. I'm pleased with the warranty and happy to give this new pair a test run.
I love these boots mainly because they are so lightweight, unlike other hiking boots I have had. I've worn them in subzero temperatures (with the appropriate socks) and my feet stayed warm too. No break-in required either!
