I bought these for my trip to the Crowsnest pass in Alberta. I knew my sister was going to take me on a number of hikes so I thought I had better buy a pair of hiking shoes. I grabbed these shoes because of the price and really didn't expect much. Well I did a lot of hiking and the last day there climbed to the top of Crowsnest mountain (see pic). The shoes held up great and I did not get one blister during the whole trip even though they were brand new. That has never happened before, I always get blisters breaking shoes in.

Awesome shoe for the price!!

I have purchased Rugged Outback in the past and found them to be very comfortable and well built. I purchased a pair of these to replace an older pair of Rugged Outbacks. Within the first week of wearing them, the inner soul of the right shoe broke down and was completely unwearable. The left shoe is still in good shape and the neither shoe shows any wear at all. I would not recommend Rugged Outback shoes to anyone, especially if you are counting on them for hiking. If they break down while on the trail, you will be stuck with totally unwearable shoes to get you home.

looks nice and comfert, but don't last

By 

from new ulm < MN

Comments about Rugged Outback Men's Ridge Mid Hiker:

I tried 2 pair. after the 1st one I thought id try again, 1st pair lasted 5 weeks. very comfortable, and looks nice, 2nd pair didn' t last me 3 weeks and I don't walk a lot or do a hard job, just casual wear. the back sole falls in , and metal is showing, so took the 2nd pair back and got my $$$ back,
now idk what to buy cause I need the high sides for ankle support.

iv also had the ridgeline brown and better luck with them, maybe ill go back to brown,

Bend in the wrong places, not in the right

By 

from Allston, MA

Comments about Rugged Outback Men's Ridge Mid Hiker:

The laces are attached with cloth loops instead of with metal or plastic eyelets. That makes for quite high friction, so tightening the laces at the top doesn't tighten them beyond the first cloth loop. The very top is made of a completely flexible material, which tightens high on the ankle; half an inch below, the material is much, much stiffer, so it won't tighten at all. The net effect is as though the top of the boot is being held in place by a string that's tightly wrapped around your leg and only loosely connected to the rest of the boot. Then there's the sole, which is very narrow in the middle and flexible under the ball of the foot, while a third or so of it nearest the heel is thick and rigid. The part of the upper connected to the back third is also too rigid. A boot is supposed to bend where your ankle and foot bend, while providing arch support and some stabilization in a normal stride, but not bend too far so as to provide more stabilization if you stumble and twist your ankle. These boots have floppy arches, but don't flex where they should with each step.

Payless is not conveniently located for me, but I may make the trip to return these.

Not Rugged at all

By 

from Barbados

Comments about Rugged Outback Men's Ridge Mid Hiker:

I wore shoes on hikes only four times and the innersole has crushed into the heel. I bought them on 23 October 2016 and this has happened already. One of the reasons why i chose the shoe was the sole design, one complete piece instead of the sole with the thin rubber bit. I am absolutely disappointed.

Waste of Money

Comments about Rugged Outback Men's Ridge Mid Hiker:

The souls of these shoes fell apart within a few weeks. The blew out in the heals and then started to separate on the ball of the shoe.

Comments about Rugged Outback Men's Ridge Mid Hiker:

I like the feel, comfort and price on these shoes. They do not seem to hold up long (6 months?). I just buy 2 pairs whenever there is a BOGO and accept the reality. I like the shoes.

Not recommended for outdoor use

By

Comments about Rugged Outback Men's Ridge Mid Hiker:

I use these shoes less than half an hour a day for yardwork and such. No running. Nothing strenuous. Within a week a small hole had developed on the side of the shoe. Now (several months later) the top has completely separated from the sole. Who invented a shoe that is destroyed by walking outside?
