Was attracted by yellow + style (5*for style). I'm used to the comfort/cushioning of running shoes so this shoe feels quite stiff and non-cushioned. Tongue is not padded so top of foot is barely protected from laces area. Also shoe does not bend easily at toe area as when walking...little and big toes feel pressure of tough leather at crease as you walk.
Shoes feel like they have to be broken-in. Not a comfortable walking shoe at this point (just got them). Got shoe cuz wanted all-around foot support for long distance driving (hate cruise control) and general outdoor wear and dislike the look of running shoes. Will use for driving and trail hiking. Had to order 1/2 size larger to wear w/ crew socks.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Hot and spicy, the Habanero by La Sportiva has the looks and attitude for multi-sport performance or 'round-town siesta days. Boulder, builder and basically do whatever you'd like in these comfortable, styly shoes.
