Very versatile, the Kenetrek Safari boots work great for hiking or hunting. Although they'll be your go-to early season or desert boot, they'll quickly become your first choice around town. The durable 7 inch, 2.5mm full grain leather uppers have Cambrelle lining that breathes,wicks, and keeps you from overheating. The Eurosole SuperLite sole pads your every step and grips just about any surface that you'll encounter from rocky ascents to slippery sidewalks. We've added extra-padded soft collars and flex notch upper design to bring slipper comfort to an incredibly durable boot. 2.9 lbs a pair. Made in Italy. Men's medium width whole and half sizes 8-11 1/2, whole sizes only 12, 13,14.

Bought these two weeks ago. Have walked about 12-15 miles so far on concrete, grass, and in the woods. Size Fit was correct front to back like my running shoe. They are narrower than my Courteney Selous boots and have a thicker softer sole. Feels like I'm walking on heels when on concrete. Sitting crossed legged to shoot is comfortable. Wore them Spring Turkey hunting and they are comfortable in the woods walking up and down hill. I do have heel slip while walking but no blisters with my regular Smart Wool boot socks and with the free Kenetrek socks that came with the boots. Would I buy them again...not for the price and I can't return them now. Honestly I don't know why but I was expecting something more for the price I paid. Unfortunately you have to walk in boots for some distance in all terrain to get to know if you will like them and you can't do that in your house. For the price basic boot leather care products should be included like the Courteney boots which are also overpriced as well but I had to know so I bought both in plans for an upcoming safari. My long term opinion could change on these boots however.


Bought Desert Safari boots 2 weeks prior to Italy Tour. No break in time needed and other tour groups participants complaining about their feet hurting...not me!! Looking forward to Wyoming archery/hunting in these boots.


I ordered the Safari Guide looking for something more durable than Keens or other light weight boots. They arrived in a couple of days as promised. My actual shoe size is 10.5 wide but this boot is not offered in wide, so based upon the advice from LHR, I ordered 11 REG. The boots fit very well with no heel slip or pinching. The toe box is big enough for me to have some space as well. I wear a fairly thick custom orthotic due to plantar fascitis issues from the Army.

The boot has a very wide opening so it is easy to take on and off. I used the boot dressing provided as recommended. It makes the boot quite a bit darker in color but it looks nice.

My feet are prone overheat so I wear thinner socks. I live in the SW New Mexico and spend lots of time out in rough rocky areas with lots of pointy bushes. It remains to be seen how the boots will suit me in the hot weather. They have been very good thus far.

Be prepared for a break in period. I have 20+ miles on this pair and they are still a bit stiff. I am considering buying a second pair or even upgrading to the Desert Guide model.

If here is one complaint it is that the tread picks up and holds small pebbles and rocks; a small irritation. Perhaps this will cease as the boots break in and treads wear somewhat. I would imagine if there were a lot of mud that the soles might load up.

Thanks for an excellent product, solid advice and speedy delivery. This is my first purchase from LRH. I anticipate future business.
