Men's SL M3 Wide Backpacking Boots
Boots are very comfortable and true to size. I normally wear a 4e in width and there is enough room for my toes to not be squished against each side of the boot. The heel fits snug and does not move. I have not tryed them in water yet but the quality is top notch and i have no doubt that they will perform well. Boots are a bit stiff right out of the box but for me it took 2 days at about 4 hours each day and they were broken in enough to wear all day on the trail with any blisters.

The SL M3 (wide) seems to be a quality boot, very well constructed. Unfortunately, I had to return my pair due to them not being wide enough. My feet are about a EEE width, and despite the fact that this version is a wide boot, it just isn't enough. The description on the Scarpa website says that these will fit up to an E width, so keep this in mind, and I would suggest anyone interested try these on in a store if at all possible. I am not going to give these boots a bad review simply because they don't fit my feet, because in my limited testing they seemed great besides the width. Recommended for those who have only moderately wide feet.
