PROS:

  • the boots are very roomy, for feet with all kinds of problems
  • the price is great
  • the boots give comfort, no matter what your foot issues

CONS:

  • the boots need more cushioning
  • the quality of the mesh could be better
  • the shock absorption is not the best.


Current prices on Amazon:

I have so many feet problems (plantar fasciitis, corns, calluses, you name it… I lost their count) so finding the right hiking boots (because I love to hike!) was a real struggle for me.

I found these Nevados hiking boots and they take so good care of my plantar fasciitis and wide feet, that I think I will never ever replace them (as long as they are in good shape, anyway).

These boots are waterproof- I avoided no puddles and I hid from no rain while wearing them and not even once did my socks get wet. There’s another thing when water goes over the top of your  boots, obviously 🙂

The boots feel lightweight but they are very sturdy and I tried so many heavy duty trails with them. I didn’t keep away from the rocky or wet trails.

I also like these boots for their style as they look so cool.

They give great traction and they never pinched me when going uphill, all the while feeling sturdy when they take me downhill.

The boots give good ankle support.

I can wear thick socks with these boots as the toe box is so roomy.

They are made of genuine leather and needed some time to break in- not long, though.

I achieve a good grip with these boots and I tried them even on the most difficult trails (I do know some) and they held their own pretty well.

The boots are low cut around the ankles which is exactly what I was looking for to wear all year long.

All in all, here’s my list of pros:

  • the boots are very roomy, for feet with all kinds of problems
  • the price is great
  • the boots give comfort, no matter what your foot issues
  • they can be used in all kinds of situations and are versatile
  • the boots look nice
  • they are durable
  • the boots give a good grip and are sturdy even on the most difficult trails

I like the boots for their toe box, but I think that’s a little bit too wide if your foot width is kind of regular. So, the boots are a bit wide.

I encountered some slight slippage in the ankle area.

Also, in the beginning, since the boots are made of leather, I got some light ankle rubbing. It got better in time, but this is a common issue with leather boots.

The mesh area doesn’t look very good after1 year of heavy wearing. I did use these boots a lot and the mesh doesn’t take it very well.

I would like these boots to be more cushioned as this would bring more comfort on the long, difficult hikes.

The shock absorption could be better- sometime I feel every rock I step on.

My “cons”:

  • the boots need more cushioning
  • the quality of the mesh could be better
  • the ankle support could be improved
  • the shock absorption is not the best.

But, in the end, for my wide “all kinds of problems” feet, these boots are still a great buy and I’m just hoping they will take all the hikes I plan to throw at them 🙂
