Women's Lace-Up Hikers
Stylish, edgy, rugged, comfortable boots
Had been drooling over these boots since I first saw them in the Sahalie catalog! Wanted something edgey/rugged to wear with jean skirts, tights & skirts, and casual dresses...so when my finances came together with a great Sahalie coupon, the boots were ordered! Oh my goodness, what wonderful boots they are...amazingly comfortable out of the box, very soft yet thick leather, lightly insulated insole, nice tread, waterproof, beautiful reddish brown color, love the side zipper. Made in Canada by Martino. I haven't seen these on-line anywhere else, and Sahalie carries these plus a shorter style. I had seen reviews that mentioned they run a little small. I normally wear an 8 1/2 so ordered a 9...a smidge big with regular socks but will be perfect with thicker socks in colder months. Received numerous compliments the very first day I wore them (at a small farmers' conference in a college town). When they get too beat up to wear with dresses and skirts, I will wear them for hiking and for working outside... they will get years of use. I am now a Sahalie catalog and Martino boot devotee!

This product is a miracle!
Every feature listed about these boots are true to form!...Yes they are waterproof leather, have thermal membrane, is salt stain proof, all year round boots that lace up the front & zip up on the sides....this meets the requirements of my job: I'm a Corrections Officer, it's a miracle & I thank you!

I bought these boots after reading very good reviews and may be I am just unlucky one. One boot fell apart on 6th day of wearing . I am very disappointed in such poor quality for that price. I definitely want my money back.

These were on back order for a while, but they are worth the wait. The quality is great. They fit and look amazing. I have no complains.

Nice looking boots
Boots look great. Odd angle of the ankle section but wife says they feel comfortable. Good constuction on a lighter thickness of leather. Only time will tell if the hold up. If anyone can stress-test shoes it will be my wife!

Bought these for my teenage daughter. They are very cute, seem to be waterproof (though haven't had them all that long) and she says they are comfortable.

Nice leather boot
Love the laces and side zipper - just what I was looking for. Fits a little short, just a bit snug in the toe box, which means no heavy socks. They have kept my feet warm in -7 degree F temps, and am curious to see how they keep feet cool when it warms up. A lightweight boot that can be laced to provide a snug fit while allowing easy on/off with the zipper.

Martino makes a very comfortable boot. This is the second pair I have purchased in a different style. I have difficult and insert to fit, but I can wear these boots all day with no problems.
I ordered a size larger than I usually do so that my orthotics will fit and there is plenty of room for thick, wool socks if I wear them.
