This is my first wildland season. These boots are rough, be patient and power through and they break in pretty decent. Still aren't anything of comfort honestly. Soles are still rock hard after several hours of wear, plenty of water and dry, and stepping in two hot spots, hot enough to garner attention. Being on the low end these are definitely a good option for a first season, so you aren't out 400+ dollars.
Short: These are fairly tough, may last more than one season. Take time to break them in and deal with the pain. Great protection. Pretty uncomfortable after 1hr or 12hrs. Wear 2 pair socks or very thick wool.

Boots were delivered promptly. The fit was perfect. I hiked 10 miles the first day and 8 the second day both on varied terrain and no hot spots or blisters. The gentleman who I spoke with at Fire etc suggested I go with a size smaller than I would have ordered and he was correct. The price was also one of the lowest I found. I will buy additional items from Fire etc.

I have always been a fan of the hat horn boots and this is the best price bar none I've found. Thanks

Use sellers advice on buying half size smaller than normal. Expect to need to wear some to break in before extended use, initially pretty stiff. I like the boots, haven't used in a fire yet. Shipping was faster than expected. I recommend so far.

Love the boots. They were exactly what I was looking for. I listened to the seller advice and ordered a half size small and they are perfect. These boots will be used primarily on wildland fires. I haven't had the chance to get them into any fire yet. Shipping was super fast, had the boots the same week I ordered them.

I recieved them only a few days after ordering, and was impressed at the quality of materials used to make them. They fit perfect, and are tracking right along with getting broken in.

my husband love's his boots a lot

I was notified quickly when the boots came in, I placed my order and in less than 5 days I had them on my feet. The construction of the boot is heavy duty and feels like it will last a good long while. Break in took about two weeks, I completely understand why this brand has the following that it does.. The only reason I did not give it the full five stars, is due to the fact that the boot can only be re-soled not completely rebuilt like the Whites. Other than that I am completely satisfied. Also this is the best price that I have found for these boots online, everyone else starts at $200 and goes north from there.
