I wore this shoe for 9 months and went and got another pair of the same kind. My only negative would be color, but that's entirely a personal choice.
I would recommend this shoe to anyone who likes the idea of having more mobility/agility then a traditional hiking shoe, but does not want to sacrifice complete support. Also, consider this shoe, if you are interested in something that can take more trail and wilderness abuse then other light hikers.
I have a more in depth review that can be found at,
