Love these. I really struggle to find shoes with adequate arch support (mine are extremely high from 10+ years of ballet training), and these have been a lifesaver! Probably wouldn't recommend them if you are more flat footed for that reason, but the insoles are easily removable so they might be fine with the right insert. I will say that the color is quite a bit darker than the images online - they are more of a true brown than the caramel/cognac I was expecting from the website. But everything else is great and I was just thrilled to find women's boots that didn't have any garish pink, purple, or turquoise accents so I don't mind. The look of these is really classic. Also pleasantly surprised that they came with an extra pair of laces in a really nice terra cotta orange. They are also waterproof but not stiflingly warm in hotter weather, and the traction is fantastic. These are very well-constructed boots that I can tell will hold up to years of hiking in all types of climate and terrain. Highly recommend!
