This item is only available in whole sizes. If you regularly wear a half size, we recommend going up to the next full size. For example, a person who usually wears a 9.5 should order a size 10.
Been wearing them daily to break them in prior to the hunt. They're easy to put on right out of the box and get more comfortable each day. I wear orthotic insoles and they slip right in and stay in place. I like them so much that I'm thinking of getting a pair of the Guide ADV for warm weather trekking. Great boots and I'd recommend them to anyone that takes comfort seriously.
I purchased the 16" Hunter 2 and absolutely love them! I was worried they would be a little clunky for stalking but they felt like a nice worn in pair of hiking boots. I will not buy any other boot!
Comfortable, warm, and durable. Perfect for hunting in Montana or any cold weather environment.
Great boot! Went out in a foot of snow and temps around 10F with a medium wool sock and stayed very warm and comfortable. Walked about 5 miles and was very happy with the fit. I wear a 10.5 but went with the 11.
I got these boots just in time for the last elk hunt of the year here in Wyoming. Conditions were -10 F starting out with 4 to 8 inches of fresh light snow. My toes got a little cool after a couple hours, even with walking, but not distractingly uncomfortable. I wear size 13D and got that size. They were snug to start, but my foot fit perfect after about 5 miles of walking. I covered some steep ground for part of it, and the soles provided good support. The boots were breaking in, and the uppers got a little loose around the ankle. I could have fixed that by re-tightening the laces, but wasn’t a problem. Overall I gave these boots a good initial test and am quite pleased with them. Looking forward to them as part of my late season gear for years to come. There are some strong negative comments on the web about how feet get wet in these boots. That is an undeserved smear. I would like to say that I have never considered a pac-type boot to hold up to slogging around in water. Maybe a quick step in a shallow crick but nothing more. Pac boots are proven for cold and snow, and even wet snow, but not water. Schnee’s boots are a cut above your ordinary pac boot in that they are also designed and built for a lot of walking in snow. If that is what you do, then you won’t be disappointed.
Great boot, well-built and solid. Plenty of comfort in the lower and thick supportive leather in the upper. I typically wear a size 11, but have a wide, but not quite wide foot. I stepped into a size 12 and they fit great with a wool sock.
Ordered online. I was really impressed with the quality of these boots but sizing was small. I wear a 13 and I could not fit my feet into these boots, I've never worn a 14 but suppose that's what it would take. Bummer, because it cost me 20.00 to send back for exchange.
They were even higher quality than I expected . They are definitely worth the money.
Perfect boots for a Michigan winter! I bought these for my husband who works construction outside and he said that his feet never got cold or sweaty even though it was below zero.
My background: retired military, 52 years old, living in South Dakota. I have hunted deer and birds nearly all my life, and lived all around the US and overseas. I currently maintain three different styles and brands of hunting boots that each meet a certain mission. I needed a new pair of insulated pac boots because I like the waterproofness inherent in the design. I owned a single pair of LL Bean Maine Hunting Shoe pac boots for nearly 30 years, but they no longer offer the air-bob style sole, so I found Schnee's 10-inch Hunter II as an alternative, and I like the Schnee's better. The Schnee's boots are just heavier-duty than the Bean's offering. Like a 2500 pickup versus a 1500 pickup. The Schnees are obviously well built with quality leather and stitching. The wool liners are very warm; almost too warm for active use perhaps (?), but time will tell as I log some more mileage in the snow here. I'm sure they will be great for sitting in a tree stand! As far as size, I wear 10.5, so I went with size 11. They feel -almost- too big, but I can lace them tight and they feel solid. Bottom line is these boots are very high quality and I would buy them again.
