Got the Ahnu Bridge about 3 days ago. So far they're a pretty good shoe.
I got the Ahnu Tiburon II first and the buckle broke the first time I put them on at home so I exchanged them for the Bridge. They are a little wide in the ball of the foot area, but I do have a narrow foot. Construction could be better i.e. weld stitching and double stitching instead of single stitching on the shoe. But for $60 less than the Keen the Bridge is a good shoe for around the house or for just kicking around town. The Bridge is light and comfortable and wears good.
Like I said I've only had them for 3 days so I'll have to put them through there paces to test durability. My normal shoe is Keen. And the Ahnu is not in the same league as Keen. For the money though the Bridge is a good buy.
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Ahnu Bridge has the stylish looks for 'round town fun, but it has the technical features and Ahnu attitude that will make you want to jump around in the biggest rain puddle available.
