After trying Kenetrek, Crispi, Meindl, Lowa, Asolo, and Zamberlin, I found a boot that fits. I am very impressed with the quality of this boot and the excellent service that I've received from Hoffman's. I will be buying more boots from these folks!

Explorer boots
These are great boots.  Had some ankle issues 3 weeks before a trip to Mt Katahdin and needed tall boots that were supportive so I purchased the Explorers.   These boots were just excellent.  I have wide feet and sometimes have trouble with wides not being wide enough.  These fit perfect in wide, insoles are great and support is exactly what I needed.  Hiked with practically no break in and my feet felt great!  Won’t be my last pair of these.

Great Boot
Hi Jim , I recently purchased your insulated explorer boots from Kalispell Army Navy and have put about 50  plus miles on them and they have been the most comfortable insulated hunting boot 👢 I’ve ever owned ...I’m looking at purchasing your 6” explorer lite for hiking,hunting Mountain Grouse and wanted to know if they were size the same as the insulated explorer? Thanks for your time and quality products
