One user found the shoe was not comfortable above the ankles while another found discomfort at the arch.

Ahnu Montara Boot Review | Gear Institute

the mid-cut design makes the Montara look like a stable boot, it offers embarrassingly little support even under light loads and on moderate trails, and does not offer enough stability for any substantial backpacking weight.
