I walk 9 holes of golf everyday. My home course is located on the mountain of Ko'olau Hawai'i. Because it's very hilly, normal golf shoes isn't a good idea. I decided to take a chance on Nortiv8 hiking shoes. I love them so much that I bought another pair.
I got these last week and started using them daily. The shoes are very comfortable and supportive. This was my first time trying this brand as I usually only get Merrell or some other mid range brand. I would put this shoe on par with them. As far as sizing goes I found them to be a little on the larger size but not by much, maybe a quarter size larger than expected. I usually wear a 10.5 and these were a little loose but still acceptable. I have not tried the waterproofing yet so that is the reason for 4 stars and not 5. For the price, they are hard to beat.
Well worth it
I'm a professional detailer and I got these for the low cut and waterproof quality. To he honest, I work hard and put shoes to their limits. These are pretty comfortable for wearing for extended amounts of time. I don't know how waterproof they are if you were to wear them and stand in a few inches of water..... But I can tell you, these are the first shoes I've been able to find that don't get wet on the inside while using a pressure washer. That was the biggest thing for me because I'm not a fan of having to switch to knee high water boots just to spray water. With these, I keep them on and my feet stay dry while still being breathable. I believe there's a waterproof membrane inside which I find better then waterproof material because they don't hold onto the water and get heavy if they get wet. Longevity I'm not sure about since I've only had then a few weeks but like I said, I use these every day for sometimes up to 8 or 9 hours of constant use without any issues. I definitely recommend these if you're looking for a low cut boot that's comfortable, waterproof, and breathable. The size for me was pretty accurate as well. I wear a 10½ wide and these fit perfectly without having any pinch points or being too tight in the toes.
Surprising for the money
I have to admit I have been wearing Merrill hiking shoes for years, so I was a bit skeptical buying these on Amazon sight unseen. It turns out it actually was a pretty good decision! With the price of similar shoes two and a half times the price of these, I figured I would take a chance and if they wore out in a year or two, I was still ahead of the game. I also wasn't sure what their construction would be like, and if they would be uncomfortable out of the box. I'm pleased to say they seem to be made quite well. They are comfortable right out of the box, and I was able to wear them for eight straight hours and it's like I had owned them forever. They are also quite cushy, so while I might not climb Mount Everest with these, going for a nice walk on a trail, or a short hike, they seem like they'll do the trek which is exactly what I was looking for. One thing that's a bit different is they are a bit more bulky than the Merrell shoes. The tongue on these shoes is quite thick, which might not be a bad thing depending on who you ask, but the shoe itself also feels a bit clunky in a sense. But it's a small complaint given the price and the apparent quality of the shoe. I don't usually write reviews but I wanted to write one for these shoes because when I bought them there were only two reviews and they were both five-star. Needless to say I was suspicious given how much review spam there is these days, but I am a real person and I'm enjoying the shoes. Pick up a pair you won't be disappointed. I'll update my review if something goes wrong with the shoes over the long term but for now I am very pleased with the purchase.
