Very light and comfortable. Your foot does not seem to shift within them at all.


  • Lightweight
  • Dries quickly
  • Affordable

The shoe fits amazingly well. Not too tight, not too loose. Just right.

Out of the box, NO break-in was needed. NO friction chafing, etc.

Support is fine.

Traction seems to be more than adequate although I was walking on flat trails, here in Fla.

I am using in 90+ degree heat and humidity and my feet did not get overly hot and barely sweated.

I've had them about a month and also wear them to work as they look nice enough too.
