    Men's Gore-Tex Cresta Hiking Boots, Leather is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 523.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from They don't last I loved these boots. They are leather, look nice and are good balance between weight and protection. But they wont last. I have had a few pairs of these boots. I am limited because I need a narrow size and there are only few choices. My problem with these is just as the leather is hitting perfect comfort the sole falls off. The sole is just glued on. If you have ever had nice leather boots, you expect them to last a good long time. If you don't have a narrow foot get a better pair of boots. You will love them for a couple years but they wont last five years. Spend a few bucks more and get something with a stitched on sole and you can love them for 10 or 20 years.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor quality insoles I have now put 80-90 miles on these boots backpacking with a 30-34 pound pack in Pennsylvania ridges. I noted in my earlier review that the insoles were not holding up well. The cloth surface has pilled badly causing my socks to stick firmly to the insole increasing issues with hot spots. It is unfortunate that such a low quality insole is included with a $180 pair of boots. I have found replacing the insoles to be difficult because the original insoles are so thin. The common after market insoles are thicker and take up much more space in the boot changing the feel of the boot such that they are no longer comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warehouse Worker These boots hold up better than others in a UPS Warehouse environment, and when the other boots wear their soles out, these show very little wear. The rubber used in the Vibram sole is very tough and takes a long time to soften up; I estimate about 200 miles of walking before it softened to the point where I didn't feel like I was walking on hockey pucks. If you're hesitant to get these because of the price, don't be, and this is why: you will have these boots for the rest of your life. Instead of buying new boots every year like the people I work with, I invested in these which will last a lifetime due to their build quality and warranty.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The old ones were much better I have purchased 7-8 pairs of these over the last 15 years. The originals were the best, great insert with lots of cushion, made in Italy, and a perfect fit. The boots are now made in Romania, the fit is not what they were, the insoles are nothing more than thin felt that givs zero support or cushioning. The insole also pills and tears within the first few days. I tried to buy the old inserts for the new boots but beans doesn't sell them. When the cost went way up, and the quality went way down, I had to go elsewhere. I would buy again If the quality ever comes back to what they used to be.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great boot, but wish they lasted longer My husband loves these boots, they're comfortable straight out of the box. He's admittedly very hard on them, but I would expect them to last longer than they do. He has two pairs on rotation, and we've exchanged several throughout the years, but they just don't last him longer than about a year. The sole comes unglued (compromising their waterproofness, which is essential), and the insole liners practically disintegrate. We've tried replacing with store bought insoles, but the fit is never quite right again. The price point is just too high to have to buy a new pair every year. I'm sure they'd last years for someone who is a more casual hiker, but that is not my husband.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shoes I have had the fabric version of this shoe for a couple years. Bought the leather version on sale 2 years ago and left them in the box till today. The fabric shoes still are in great shape, just wanted to try the new ones. Took the all leather shoes out of the box today, they were kind of stiff, then took a half hour break in walk. There is still some snow, went thru the woods with mud and rocks the shoes felt better in no time. More comfortable than the fabric version, no idea why. Waterproof, they breath well, very comfortable, sturdy, what else is there? If only Beans would bring back or add the black version of this shoe.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wear like iron. Extremely comfortable I've had 4 pair of Cresta Hikers. They are comfortable right out of the box! They offer incredible support and they wear like iron. I've gotten them wet and muddy and actually sweat right through them hiking in 100 degree heat in the desert. I've mowed the lawn in them (push mower) and have hiked the Grand Canyon in them. I've even golfed in them. The downside would be they are a little grippy when new and I would wear them in before hiking on slick-rock. Currently I'm sending a pair back because the soles are separating from the leather. No matter once you wear these boots you will always have to have a pair! I am shocked at the new price $239. WOW!! My first pair in 1988 was $79.00.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They're Worth It O.K., I've only had my present pair of Crestas' for 3 years and so far they're holding up well but I had my first pair for 17 years. I paid $160 for the originals, the most I had ever paid for a pair of shoes at the time, but I have to say they were worth every penny. In all fairness I took good care of them and referred to them as my "urban hikers" but they traveled the globe with me and never let me down. Comfortable, warm, waterproof, great ankle support and they always took a shine. My newer pair appear to be exactly the same with the exception of the place of manufacture, newbees mfg. in Romania and oldbees mfg. in Italy.
