User Review: Garmont Men's Eclipse III GTX XCR
Break-in Period: none
Price Paid: $125
I've worn these shoes nearly every day for months now, and am very pleased. I have used similar shoes for daily wear for 10 years now, but these are my favorites. This is probably because of the fit which is generous and supportive. My feet have stayed dry with one exception of once in really wet conditions when they got a tad damp.
The shoe has a nice wide fit which I need, yet I have not experienced any toe jam on downhills. I was even able to take these out for a run once when I was on vacation, and didn't expect to have time to get a run in. They seem to be durable, except the fabric on the inside of the heel which has pulled loose, but not affected comfort or performance. Then again, maybe I should unlace the shoes before I take them off.
