Nicely made boot but fails to lock in the heel. As a result, toe bang is inevitable on all but uphill walking/climbing. I am an 11.5 and ordered the 12. Still too short. If the boot had an additional grommet at the ankle to lock in your foot it would help alleviate the problem. Problem didn't become clear until too late to return. Too bad.

This is a great shoe for hiking and climbing over different types of terrain. The shoe feels like it sticks to many different rocks and trail surfaces. It is also very comfortable and dries quickly if it gets wet.

Best hiking shoes ever. This is my second pair. They have a very snug fit but never uncomfortable. Possibly on the narrow side if you have a wide foot. Very durable, still have my first pair and they're almost 3 years old. Rugged, made for hiking but can be used as your everyday go-to shoe for those not wearing suits

I've worn these boots on a 7 or 8 trips through a variety of terrain and conditions: very rugged & steep off-trail scrambling over/through rocks, bushes, etc. In snow & rain. the boots are fantastic. Not light, but very sturdy, secure, protective. my feet never got wet. I wear insoles so I can't comment on the arch support. I wear a size 14 wide shoe and the size 49 fit me great. I think they look great, but I don't care how they look. 5 stars.

Love these shoes. They fit true to size for me (size 12) and I love the styling as well as the fit. I bought these to wear hiking and biking, but first wore them around town to break them in. They're not super stiff, but need a bit of time to conform to your feet. The construction is top notch. This is a well made shoe.

I typically don't do reviews but felt I had to with this boot. Very comfortable right out of the box hiked Franconia ridge with a 30lb pack for an overnight trip the day after I recieved them, no blisters felt good. Great boot for those with low volume feet. Finally found a pair of hiking boots that work and fit well.

Great pair of sneakers! I usually wear them on weekends and this ones are at the top of the list add to that they are also cool to take them to the gym on short trips and they are all in one!

These are really cute and different. However, I think I might have to return these shoes because when I went walking on a trail, the little rocks got into the shoes because of laces so far down shoe (I think). I really love the look of these shoes, kinda resemble bowling shoes. They are very comfortable. I went up half a size than my normal size on these. 9½ instead of a 9 because of other reviews I read said they run small.

Great looking shoe! The Vibram sole is fantastic...will stick to anything. I bought these mainly for daily wear and the occasional hike. - I have another pair of hiking boots I prefer for the trails. The only gripe I have about this shoe is that pesky tongue; it simply won't stay in place, centered as it should. It keeps dropping to the left and right respectively. Additionally, the light color suede gets dirty in a nano second. After the first week, the tongue was filthy just from daily walking. If the tongue were a different material than the body, perhaps that would help. I've worn a 10.5 all my life and found the Mojito 10.5 simply too small. Maybe it's just my feet, but the shoe fits super narrow at the toes. I'll definitely buy Scarpa again, but maybe in a larger size and darker tongue color if available.

I love this shoe! Walked in the house for an afternoon and committed to it. I hiked three miles and up about 2000 ft up to a local trail. The shoes started great and already started feeling like gloves by the time I was back. I wish all of my shoes were so well matched. Note: I have "no arch support" below, but I have really high arches and always get orthodics.

I love these shoes. They are very comfortable and durable. I typically wear some sort of flat sole walking shoe, but have found they wear out quickly or offer no support. This is right in the middle before getting a shoe for the winter which is simply too stiff. Love Love Love.

I love these shoes - comfy, cute and high quality! I need a new pair of hiking shoes, and I also wanted to use them for mountain biking so I was looking for a stiffer sole. They work great for both hiking and biking. I wore them all week for a trip in Moab, and they gave me a lot of grip on the slick rock and trails. I would definitely recommend these shoes. I've never tried this brand before, but I will again.

Bought these to replace the Montrail GTX shoes, and they are even better. There have been many storms so far this season and the feet remain dry and comfy.

Most comfortable shoes I've ever had on my feet. I got them for the relatively aggressive tread to walk on my gravel road. Truth is, the tread actually isn't great for gravel, and the tread wore down sooner than I'd like in such an expensive shoe, but I'll buy them again because they are the most comfortable shoes ever. I'm overweight (hence wanting to get in more walking) and had been experiencing regular foot pain until I got these shoes. Love them.

Well, I love these shoes and they are great on slick rock hikes. Unfortunately, after having them for only 6 months there is significant wear in the suede area where the purple strapping runs up to the laces. It feels like the suede was not sturdy enough for the tension of those lace straps. It's only on the inside of the right show. Fortunately, Zappos is great. One simple phone call and I have a new pair coming! Hopefully these will last a long time!

Wore these on a hiking trip through Italy in the fall and they were great. Scarpa's are my favorite go-to shoe for hiking, but this shoe I wear everywhere. They even looked cute with a hiking skirt.

These are great boots. Extremely light weight and breathable. The only reason I couldn't give comfort a full 5 stars is because the toe box narrows a little quicker than what is comfortable for me on the outside of my foot; so, basically, my little toe was getting a little squashed every time I took a step. Scarpa uses many different sizing Lasts for their boots so you may want to check their web site to see which Last is right for you. Unfortunately, sometimes the info on the product doesn't tell you which Last the boot uses or what that means when it comes to sizing. Their BX Last is the one that fits the majority of peoples feet, according to their site, which is used in the Kailash. So, if you have slightly wide or need space in the toe box just keep that in mind. As one person mentioned, you will feel uneven terrain through the outsole pressing up into your foot but its not bad for moderately small debris; so, I would not consider this to be a medium to heavy pack or trail boot but more of a very comfy light duty off roader for day hikes and light packing or all round basic outdoor use. The tongue is sufficiently padded and the collar flexes really easily so that there is virtually no break in time needed. the heel locks in very well which means that you will not be needing to over tighten the laces to prevent heel slip. As long as you understand that these boots are light duty and the shape fits your foot well I don't see how you could go wrong with these boots. Zappos is truly the best of the best! Thanks Zappos for doing such a great job and making life a little bit nicer and enjoyable through superior service.

5 Star shoes. I am currently wearing these on a trip in Vietnam, and they are very sturdy and comfortable. I have walked extensively in them for 2 weeks and all is great. Breathability is really good. At the end of the day I am literally melting from the humidity. I have been sweating more than a Belfast valet in the 1980s, but my feet have not been soaking wet so far. My feet have hurt less wearing these and walking miles, than after a normal day at work in my work shoes. They also look great, that is not an opinion, but a fact. I have received 2 compliments already from complete strangers. That never happens to me regarding my shoes. I get compliments all the time on how good looking I am, but never my shoes.

My third pair! I love the full toe and comfortable interior of this shoe. I am a standard width foot but hike on trails daily with my dogs and this shoe laces to conform to my own foot and has decent traction on rocks. Ready to wear out of the box no need for me to break them in. Yippeee!

Overall, a great shoe. Sizing is good for length but seems to run narrow in the fit. I wore them for a week straight walking 30-40K steps a day and my feet never felt better. Great support. The only problem was on BOTH shoes, the light colored mesh cushioning at the same exact spot on the inside of both ankles started to fray and wear out after just two weeks of wear. That was disappointing. I got a number of compliments and inquiries and will probably buy another pair when I wear these out!

The full lace up design is perfect for those who want a custom fit. 7 to 10 mile hikes navigate well in these shoes. They stay put and maintain a good feel, no need for breaking in. Not a very heavy heal pad, some could get heal bruising if you are accustomed to a heavy foot fall.
