TrekSta is a star
I live in Arizona where temps get as high as 115 degrees and lows in the 30's. Shoe performs well in both conditions and allows breathability. The shoe fits snug with a roomy toe, comfortable and light weight. I typically wear between an 8 and 8.5 depending on the shoe but an 8.5 is perfect in this mid hiker to wear with thin socks and roomy enough to wear heavier socks if needed. The back of heel is a little tough but will break in after a few wears. Great on the trail and really good on the snow too. In the snow, feet will get cold since it's not a snow boot but wear some nice cozy socks for a little walking in the snow and you'll be fine. See pic below. Great shoe for the price.
Treksta Boots - Great look, great support
I purchased these boots for my wife based on the recommendation of Backpacker Magazine's Spring Gear issue. The shoes were attractive, sturdy, and an all-around great boot. Unfortunately, these boots wouldn't accommodate my wife's wide feet. We would highly recommend the Treksta boot for anyone with a normal, or even a modestly wide, foot.
Absolutely no hot spots!
I purchased these boots on the recommendation of Backpacker Magazine's Spring Gear issue. The first pair I ordered were too small (the review had recommended true-to-size ordering and I normally wear a women's 9), but when the 9.5 arrived, I put them straight to work. Hiking around Western NC went well, so I put them to the ultimate test: one week of backpacking in the Grand Canyon. Previously, my otherwise comfortable old boots had wreaked havoc with my toenails; I almost lost 2 nails after my last trip. However, not only were my toenails happy, I had no heel or toe hot spots.The elongated design of the great toe toe box did the trick. Highly recommended, just make sure you get the right size first!
