I bought the Moab boot before we went to the Tetons. I'm not a hiker, but I had Achilles surgery in late November and still have weakness and now supinate on that foot. The Moab was excellent! It supported my ankle just enough and still was a lightweight and extremely comfortable shoe. It feels like they were made for my feet, they fit so well. I wore them the first day all day walking in Yellowstone, they needed no breakin at all. My feet were never sore and they didn't get tired like they did in all the different 'walking' shoes I've tried before. I'm wearing them now to work every day, I just can't get over how great a shoe they are! I did buy a 1/2 size larger and they were a perfect fit.
