Not your old Ahnus - Poorly made and no longer durable
I have been a huge fan of Ahnu boots since buying my first pair around 5 years ago: no blisters, extremely lightweight and very durable. Completely changed my relationship with hiking. My first pair lasted nearly four years of decently frequent use and pretty heavy mileage at times. However, since Teva and Ahnu have partnered, the quality has declined immensely and I no longer recommend this product. My second pair (this pair) lasted barely 4 months of moderate use before holes, ripped seams, and leather damage occurred that were so extensive that my local shoe repairman said there was nothing he could do. While I still found them comfortable and lightweight, I simply can't afford to replace them every few months because the company is cutting corners on quality. I have since been buying used pairs of the original high-quality Ahnu version of this boot online and will continue to do so unless Teva ups the durability of this boot. Overall, very disappointed and frustrated with this new model. I think the previous version was one of the best outdoor products out there, my favorite pair of shoes, and I'm sad to see them go.
NOT waterproof , got wet feet in them and got sick:(
I give 2 stars because the boots are light and they were ok in the beginning, this is my second pair from ahnu. The first one was a higher boot and holds better in the snow,but these ones, after one season, not so much! which is why I am so disappointed! All I want is a good waterproof boot that keeps my feet dry on trails! I got sick from hiking back 5 miles all wet in them on the way back two days ago, not fun! I used to recommend this brand to everyone , now I feel bad for doing it!
This boot is not the same as the Montara I am used to!
I have purchased 3 of the original Montara hiking boots and have loved them, but not this new version. The size is not true, the toe box is too wide, the boot needs a pull strap on the back and the tounge is too low. there really is no cushion for the foot. I have been wearing my old ones because they still feel better on my feet than this new version. I now have to find a different boot which is a shame considering the cost of these, I have only had them 25 days and hate them..
Was disappointed in this purchase for how much money I spent. Wore on smaller day hikes and the boots were just fine, not much discomfort and good traction, however I brought these on a longer expedition and was disappointed when after the first day both of my ankles got horrible blisters. I had on nice wool hiking socks and still the padding was not enough. The transition in the back has almost no padding making them rub awful when making steep inclines. I would not recommend if your looking for reliable to take you deep into the mountains! Save your money and purchase elsewhere.
I had to go up a half-size to get these larger than my last Anhu boots - and they feel great (now). These are perfect light-weight day hikers for 4-6 hours, they perform well in both rocky and muddy terrain, on mid-level challenging trails.
I was initially happy with my purchase; however, as I went on more hikes and for longer/steeper distances...these did not provide the comfort I needed. We climbed Mt. St. Helens and I wore these...experiencing blisters with these boots already broke in and the waterproofing did not hold up with glisading back down the mountain. These boots are fine for more casual hikes, but if you're going for longer miles and a more strenuous hike...I wouldn't recommend. I'm disappointed because for the cost, these boots should be able to withstand the elements of hiking if they're truly considered "hiking boots". I had these for less than a year, so I'm bummed I spent that much money on these boots and am already looking for a new pair. I would recommend this boot only for casual hiking/short distances and gradual elevation gains.
After a terrible high ankle sprain while hiking, I bought these boots. They are so light and truly waterproof. My ankle feels very well supported. I have not yet done any long hikes but so far so good. And they are really cute!
Radically different from the Ahnu I knew and loved
I have owned 7 pairs of Ahnu Montara hiking boots, buying a new pair every year -- It's the best boot I've ever owned. Lightweight, snug and supportive, and attractive. But the NEW Teva version of the Ahnu Montara is sloppy in the toe box -- so sloppy that lacing the boot as tight as possible still doesn't bring the boot in around the foot enough to provide adequate support. There is no pull loop at the back of the boot, top of the "counter," and the new color schemes are not as classically tasteful as the original Ahnu.
After a severe break to my foot healed I was told to wear a stiff-soled hiking boot for continued protection. The first pair (different brand) I had was a little clunky-looking and the sole cracked after 16 months. I looked for a replacement boot and after trying several, bought a pair of Ahnu Montara boots - the boot was a bit higher above my ankle than I wanted but felt better on my foot than some of the others. Unfortunately, waterproofing wore off after only 7 months of wear. I still wear them and they feel okay, but even a heavy dew will soak through after crossing the yard to refill bird feeders (less than 200'). Looks like I'll be shopping for a different brand to get me through the winter because I can't afford to pay high price for a shoe that only lasts a few months. If you live in a dry climate, these would be great, but not in rainy, snowy, muddy locales.
Love love love! These boots were awesome! Great leather, great looks and oh so comfortable, as well as waterproof! However, after 8-9 months they started to separate from the sole, and now they are done for, lol. My last hiking boots (a different brand) lasted about 4 years. After paying $170 at Cabelas I expect my footwear to be much more durable. That's why I spend more money on them. For me the lack of durability does not justify the price I paid
I got these boots in enough time to trudge through heavy rain and cold this past weekend. All of the other reviews are true. Completely waterproof inside and out. I got the plum and blue color, and they look the exact same from the photos. The fit is amazing, and I didn't have to break them in. The first day I wore them I had to be on my feet all day, but I didn't experience any pain or rubbing. Truly, these boots are made for your feet.
These are the lights hiking shoes I have owned. I bought these because my new job requires you to wear hocking boots so I'm in these for 10 hours a day 4 days a week and my do my feet feel amazing at the end of the day. No breaking in was required of these boot. Absolutely love them.
I bought my first pair of Ahnu Montana's four years ago. I just bought my second pair, not because I had to, but because I wanted to make sure I had another pair on hand when mine eventually tire. As far as I'm concerned, these are the best women's hiking boots on the market. They're ridiculously light weight, super waterproof, and insanely comfortable. I've taken these on many backcountry adventures with and without a monstrous backpack, trail hikes, canoe trips, and the next adventure will be a month-long thru-hike. Please never stop making these!
I still can't get over how light and comfortable these boots are- I've had hiking boots in the past that I just couldn't wait to take off my feet, but these were just amazing! I wholeheartedly recommend these to anyone and everyone. My friend and I each bought a pair for our trip to the UK, and wore these daily, both hiking and city exploring, and the versatility won me over.
Iv owned many many hiking boots over the years and I am so happy I found these. From the first wear, I have not once gotten a blister, hotspot or sore pain from wearing these. Iv had them for two years now and they are still in great shape after very frequent wear. I have narrow boney feet so finding good boots has always plagued me. Will definitely buy another pair once mine wear out.
I purchased these boots for a study abroad/hiking trip in New Zealand and they were absolutely perfect. I only had a week or so to break them in, so I wore them every day before the trip, but they were never uncomfortable--I don't think they even needed break-in period. They are the perfect blend of comfort, durability, and support. I especially appreciate how lightweight they feel in comparison to most hiking boots and I was worried that the wouldn't be as supportive, but that was not the case at all. They are so comfortable, I ended up wearing them every day throughout the trip, even when we weren't hiking. Highly recommend!
I needed a pair of boots that were higher on the ankle to go with my Merrills. With less than a week before my trip to Big Bend National Park I expected a couple of blisters as I broke them in. The truth is, I wore these the whole time and not a single blister!!!! These are the most comfortable hiking boots I have ever worn!!!
