Recieved in good time, they looked great, unfortunately, they were too small, i gpt a size 10 which all my boots and trainers are, but these were very tight and not quite long enough, definitely come up a bit small, so would get next size up from usual. Quality was good though, just let down by the fit which is a shame.
I received these Holtanna II's 4 days ago. Thus far, I have hiked 29 miles in these boots. The first thing which impressed me was the rugged design and excellent craftsmanship. They appear bulletproof. My feed are a bit wide; when given the choice I usually order size 11-E. Since adidas doesn't give width options, I ordered size 11-1/2. I hike from my mountain home in Western Washington, where the terrain is steep, rocky, muddy, and wet; typically I slog through streams running down the trails. On the first wearing the uppers were a bit stiff, but the soles felt like I was walking on a cushion of air. My feet have never been so comfortable on a hike. I returned home with my feet perfectly warm and dry. After the first wearing, I treated the leather portion of the uppers with two applications of neatsfoot oil. The oil darkens leather, but I treat all of my leather products with neatsfoot oil to enhance the waterproofing and give longevity to the leather. After using the neatsfoot oil, the uppers became perfectly supple, and the boots fit my feet like a favorite pair of gloves. I am very impressed and would buy these again in a heartbeat, although judging from the excellent construction, these are going to last me a long time!
Comfortable right out of the box. Felt like tennis shoes and could easily go on 8 mile rucks with them and run. Fast rope capabilities were great for the first year I had them (roughly 50 sticks). Highly recommend these!
I can't review on long term use, as I used it only one week. The shoe is super comfy , it's breathable so you don't overheat. The top covering the ankle is a bit bulkier than expected but overall a nice looking shoe.
I am falling in love with these bad boys more and more. The first time out, I thought, maybe too stiff of a tongue, not sure of the lace system... But they are AWESOME! So, come time 3,4,5 out on the trails, scree, rivers, pavement, these shoes have not disappointed at all. Full-day 15 milers to river walks with the dogs, these shoes rock. My friends are jealous. I don't know about the technology and never read the tags. All I know is light, fast, grippy, waterproof, styley, stable, comfy. Get a pair! -Joel Aspen, CO
I have a narrow foot with a high arch and have tried many many hiking boots and shoes over the decades. I bought the Swift R trail shoes when my hiking boots got left behind on a gorge hiking trip. The Swift Rs had to perform right out of the box to save the trip and I was not disappointed. I use them to day hike, trail run and around town - they're great!
I have not yet worn the boots for more than a few days but count on using them everyday in the Winter. They look and feel rugged and up for the task. They run small and narrow. I had to return and order a half size larger then my usual shoe size. The ordering process was easy and delivery was fast.
I actually ordered this by mistake as I originally wanted the 9.2, anyway as I received the shoe I've tried it in and looks of a nice solid make feels a bit wide at the top of the feet. I didn't use it so I can't comment on real life use. But I returned as I prefer the 9.2 to the 9.7, the return was free of charge no question asked and the money in the bank one week later.
It took about 20-30 hours of use before they really broke in. They were almost painful at the beginning (normal break in), but now they are amazing. The gore-tex works, and the leather polishes up great. These are very light for what you get and they are flexible too. My Danners are currently sitting in the corner collecting dust. If you can re-sole these boots I'll definitely keep them for a while. I went away from the GSG9's because I thought these might be too clunky...however I was wrong. Both myself and my feet are happy with this purchase.
Bought these boots for work as I needed a comfortable, lightweight yet hard wearing pair and I am not disappointed. Easy to get on and off even when laced up but not fastened (not like some others where you have to take the laces out of the top two eyelets to get your feet out) . The padded tongue provides enough cushioning so when the boot is fastened, there is no rubbing caused by the neck of the boot around the shin area and there is ample padding to prevent any rubbing around the rest of the boot top. It’s not too tight across the bridge of the foot either when it is fastened and it provides a firm enough contact with the ground but yet retaining flexibility in the boot itself. The traxion sole and the adiprene heel add cushion and rigidity in just the right amount on any surface. Size wise Adidas have got it just right, I’m a size 9 and it fits perfectly. Room enough inside for the feet to still move, but not too much so as to move and cause blisters. If there is one negative about this boot and it is only a minor personal one, I would say that the top 2 or 3 eyelets could possibly be replaced with a quick lace system, although this is just personal preference and may not be to everybody’s liking.
Adidas outdoor gear are great for winter weather when you don't want those heavy boots, try Adidas outdoor Terrex Solo. There are light and extremely comfortable with Ortho lite cushioned insoles. With a few pair of socks on they are much more comfortable than boots, but much more mobility. The best part is they have tread like soles and no falling on snow and ice. Great job Adidas!!! I ready for my second pair !!!!! Oh yeah waterproof too!!!!
Boots are pretty solid but we'll see how the durability factors pans out in 6 months! Sizing a bit small- length was fine but sides are too narrow to be my first choice of shoe for comfort- hopefully leather will 'give' in time to change my mind! Ankle support is great and grip is excellent although I haven't tried it on ice yet- should I be worried? All round a pretty good boot but would have been better with the option of a wide fitting. Perhaps designers could use that feedback positively?
great quality. durable and still light and breathable. just be aware of size. I am usually 8.5 but I had to go with 9.5 for this one... my right foot still feel a bit tight but acceptable... as long as you got the size right, this is the best boots to use anytime anywhere
I have relatively narrow size 11 feet (I never have to size up or down), and these boots fit me perfectly. They're also surprisingly light weight. I love the way they look on me, too. However, I've only had these boots for a few weeks. It remains to be seen how long they'll last over the long term.
these shoes fit me perfect. Very stable, no stretching. I have had them almost a year and worn them part of almost every day. I wear them a lot on the golf course especially when the course is damp. The only complaints it they are leaking now and sole came loose at the heel. I glued the sole back so no issue there. I have washed the shoes in a washer a few times so maybe that explains the leaks. Overall, I think I am going to order another pair based on fit and stability. PS, I would have tried to return these but I have misplaced my receipt. They really do not show much wear.
I am former military, and I have used a lot of "boots looking" shoes. I took this model for a hiking second day I received them and it is a rare model that does not harm my foot during first use. The weight is little more than running shoes.
Not a big hiker so not much use for a primarily hiking shoe for me. Pleasantly surprised with them in normal use, maybe will also use them for indoor football. Feel comfortable and look great for normal use. Did some running atop a mountain in rain and didn't slip once.
Okay, so when I read all the reviews about how it was more yellow then tan I was a bit sceptical. I have been buying stuff from adidas for years and finally decided to buy these for hiking. Let me tell you that THEY ARE THE BEST FEELING THINGS I HAVE EVER PUT ON MY FEET!!! They are SSSOOOOO comfortable and fit my feet EXACTLY!!!! I never thought that I would ever find anything like these. They feel great! They are also suprisingly light weight too! I normally wore the Kanadia TR series for my daily and hiking shoe and these gsg9.3s feel almost the same weight. Now onto the color as I know people want to hear about that. If you look at the picture of the shoes, they do actually look a bit yellowish anywhere but the middle spot were the adidas 3 lines trademark logo thingy is. That part is actually the only part that is actually desert tan. In person the yellowish part does look a bit more yellow but not highlighter yellow like some other person wrote. I found that if you go to Micheals the craft store they have fabric spray paint dyes. I found a desert tan and to my suprise, it actaully made it look like a desert tan then a what I was imagining it would. I thought it would come out dark but no, it came out perfect! Afterwards I did spray a water repellant on them just incase as I did not want the dye to either fade out or come out when I walked throught streams, which is part of the reason I got the water repellent in the first place. I have a friend that just used brown shoe polish and it turned out better then the yellowish but darker than a desert tan. It wasn't that bad looking either. I let him use some of my water repellent spray and both of our color fixers have been staying in place for about 3 months now. In summery, I love the things as they are the most comfortable things I have ever worn before, but I do wish they were actually a desert tan. I STILL HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!!!!
Nice boot, but runs small. I wear a size 12 normally, but had to exchange the boots for size 13. Now they fit perfect. Just not sure why Adidas runs so small. Anyway, once you get the correct size, they fit really nice.
I have owned these shoes for about 3 months, and I think they are great shoes. They are lightweight, offer very firm support for hiking, boast the GoreTex waterproof fabric, and look very cool. I purchased these shoes for hiking in the California foothills and for fishing for bass from shore in local reservoirs. For fishing, it is essential that the shoes be waterproof, and they seem to be fine in that department (although I have yet to get them thoroughly soaked). GoreTex is the only material I trust for this purpose, which these shoes have. The terrain I hike/fish on has many rocks, pebbles, and right up to wet boulders, so the sole of my shoes must have excellent traction. These shoes deliver that much needed traction. Overall, very comfortable, very modern "tactical" look, and I highly recommend them.
After reading the reviews, I bought these boots for a 2 reasons. First, almost all the reviews stated the boots were comfortable. These boots are super comfortable, whether I am on the street or in the office. The boots feel like I am wearing regular Adidas sneakers, which by the way are my favorite and the only sneakers that I buy. The second reason I bought them was they were purported to be yellow in color and I love to be different and push the envelope. I was hoping that they would be yellow, so I would look the contrarian, I actually am. Well the boots came in desert tan, so I was a little surprised but totally happy. If you are looking for boots that work well both on and off duty, these are yours! I would recommend these to any and all!
This boot was purchased for work. I've been through many very expensive boots that has not held up very long. So far this boot is perfect. It's lite, rugged, very comfortable and stylish. It's only been about a month but, so far so good.
I am so excited about these shoes. The shoes FIT like a dream. My foot width is Normal. I got them for running the mountains. Stability and support is EXCELLENT! Traction on mud and rocks is Very Good! They feel so good, I wear them everywhere. My feet stay dry and cozy. They look great, too!
By far the comfiest pair of boots I've had on my feet, I have these on for some strong 12 hour shifts and some door work and I can Sprint and grapple easily in these, the ankle support is spot on for a mid height boot, my feet don't get too warm in these either 10/10 ! Will be buying a second pair
These are awesome. Very liteweight and durable.Best of all, its WATERPROOF. And yes, my feet stay dry. I do a whole lot of walking and these have won me over. Only problem is they dont come in wide widths. I guess they all are just one standard width. Find that really odd.But these are perfect for summer. Cant wait to find them on sale at one of the online shoe places.Or here also. Hint Hint put them on sale.
