Really comfortable shoe, very good for the fast paced hiking and trail running in muddy conditions. Found the materials to be rather hard upon first trying it on, but these have softened with wear, making it easy to get on and off, but still retailing its shape well with the rubber heel back.

Lace system has been easy to use, easy to fasten, only complaint is that when putting it on it doesn't release far enough to give a huge opening to slide into. Other than that, it has a comfortable sole with good support for my fussy feet.
