I hiked all 94+ miles of the Wonderland Trail in these shoes in July of 2009. The shoes were the most comfortable foot attire that I have ever hiked in. The size seems to be true and the leather shoe seems to conform to your feet, particularly at the heel. I got 0 blisters on my entire hike.
However, they are not water proof. Luckily, I had no rain on my entire eleven day trek so I didn't have to test the shoe in soggy conditions.
I would highly recommend this shoe for day hikes or extended hikes with little chance of rain.
