Adventures with Patch
Premium waterproof leathers, rugged craftsmanship, molded EVA soles, and Peak-to-Pavement® traction elevate the Patch from classic tyrolean lace-up to durable all-terrain adventurer.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Kayfromthepnw from Great shoe but scuffed right out of the box. Just received my Patches, the fit is wonderful and I am beyond excited to test them out. I live in the Pacific Northwest and have been on the lookout for a waterproof (but also "cute") shoe that I can take on moderate hikes and comfortably walk my dog in. Unfortunately...and I did read other reviews that claimed this...my brand new forsake patches were scuffed right out of the box, and the left shoe has visible glue and wrinkling between the sole and the shoe (I'm wondering if that will affect the integrity of the waterproofing). I hope that these shoes stand up to the weather because they really are adorable and ever so comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RachelCO from The best boots I’ve ever owned I bought these boots about 3 weeks ago and basically haven’t taken them off since! I live in Colorado so the ground is still constantly snow/slush covered and these are the ONLY shoes I own that keep my feet completely dry AND warm. I own a pair of “waterproof” Merrell’s that hardly last 20 minutes in the snow before my feet are wet and freezing cold. A couple of days ago I was hiking in the mountains with my dogs and my foot broke through ice completely submerging my boot in icy cold water, yet my toes were still dry and warm during the 2 hour hike back. I will never be buying another brand of hiking boots ever again! I recommend them to anyone and everyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Emily47 from Run Way Too Big I read all the reviews on Forsake.com and many on Amazon regarding sizing. I also measured my foot to make sure that my normal size 9 would be correct. Upon receiving, the size 9 was absolutely ginormous! I really wanted to wear these for an upcoming trip to Australia, so I decided to exchange. The question was, do I go down a half or whole size? I decided on a whole size since the 9 was huge. Well, much to my dismay the size 8 arrived and was too small. Now, I can't do anything but return and pay $10 since a size 8.5 won't be delivered before my trip. I honestly don't know what advice to give on sizing, just that it's not true to size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by majesticPuk from My favorite boots <3 I bought a pair of Patch boots THREE years ago (back when there was the ocean teal color - please bring them back and I will stock up for life!!). I have done everything in them, hiking in mud, snow and ice (up until last year living in the CO mountains) and they still wear very well. I've used Nikwax to protect the boots a couple times but for the most part they don't look as old as they are. I usually wear a size 9, but sized down to a 8.5 for these (I wear a 9 in the Alma style). The laces did break within the first winter I owned them (and I naturally lost the other pair), but other than that they're a great boot for my very picky feet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cols from Great look Decided to give these boots a try. They look great, and so far the waterproofing has held up. They seem to fit true to size. My only suggestion would be to make sure you break them in before wearing them on a trip/big hike. I ended up needing to put in orthopedic inserts as lot of walking in them made my feet a little sore. The arch support isn’t too great. it’s the second shoe by forsake that I’ve noticed this in. Their shoes seem well developed for style and function but not so much for the footbed and comfort on the soles. Once I put a gelled insert in things are fine though at the price it’s too bad they don’t improve this. Otherwise great looking show that holds up to the weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rachel27 from My favorite pair of shoes, ever. I have owned about 8 pairs of Patches over the years (yes, eight!!) and I can honestly say they are my favorite shoes ever. I have a pair in almost every color because they are that great. I love being able to go on a hike AND out to dinner in one pair of stylish, comfortable boots. I've put these through the wringer and am constantly impressed by the durability of the Patch. They are comfortable right out of the box and are best for day hiking but I've done some big hikes in them too. I always get tons of compliments when I wear them (which is every day). If you're on the fence about buying these, definitely do it! The black pair is my favorite- they go with everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoMarie from Perfect transitional footwear! I bought these a little over a month ago, as I am recently-ish recovering from ankle surgery and needed some new supportive, high-top shoes. All of my usual hiking boots or fashionable combat boots are too stiff/heavy/clunky for everyday winter wear. These Forsake Patches really are the perfect, happy medium for boot-support meets sneaker-comfort, and are cute enough to wear all fall/winter long! I purchased my normal shoe size and am pleased with the fit; roomy enough in the toe box to wear thick wool socks for extra warmth in the winter, yet I don't swim in them when wearing thinner socks. No blisters or break-in period needed!

Rated 3 out of 5 by BethB from Really cute shoes - Not as tough as I'd hoped. I love love LOVE the style of these shoes! I wear a size 9 in women's, and they did fit a little too big. They seemed great as shoes for travel adventures, urban hiking, or light hiking, but I wanted these act as replacement boots for my sturdy hiking / camping boots I've had for the past 15 years, and I just didn't feel like they would have stood up to the wear & tear of that much activity (over that long a period of time). Honestly I would have kept them if I hadn't wanted one shoe to do both urban hiking / mountain hiking, but I simply need a boot that does it all. They are SUPER cute boots though, and I really loved the style. Great traction on the bottom too!
