I bought a pair of these quite a number of years ago. I wear them year round, so they have seen many miles. They are still like new and remain totally waterproof. From day one they were extremely comfortable. This shoe has no negative aspects. It is literally perfect for hiking and casual wear. If mine ever do wear out, I will buy another pair.

Hard to find an all Black Shoe

It's so hard to find a decent all black shoe and was glad to see NB finally did even though it is still not the best looking show appearance wise . per my wife, but this shoe does have the "Roll Bar" which is a definite plus per my experience with men's shoes. My wife hopes it wears and lasts as good as it feels new. Time will tell.

These run at least a full size small and at least a full size too narrow. I can't wear them for more than an hour without considerable pain.

This boot fit perfectly and is very comfortable to wear. I hiked 3 trails in the Smokey Mountains. They provided excellent support and kept my feet dry. I also submerged them in a mountain stream while fly fishing. They dried without any problems. This is a rugged boot I would buy again.

I have been wearing NB sneakers for years. I had been looking for a comfortable outdoor work boot, as I have plantar fasciitis and other foot problems. I saw them in the store, and tried a pair 1 size larger than my regular size and they felt great!! I have been wearing them for a month, and my feet do not hurt!! I would recommend these for anyone who has difficulty finding a pain-free work boot!!

It's a good looking shoe but the width is closer to an E rather than the 4E it's supposed to be. Seems a little tight to me but I'm hoping the shoe will stretch.
