Price Paid: $70
These shoes are a nice for one or two day hikes but I wouldn't do much more than that, especially over long distances. The laces tend to come undone frequently and easily, even if you tighten them more than what you think is necessary.
While the overall fit of the shoe is very comfortable the insole tends to rub on the inside of the heel. However, it's not all bad. They do keep your feet from getting sweaty and they do have very good traction over a wide variety of surfaces.
If you are looking for a shoe to explore in for a short period of time these are fine, but if you are looking for something to hike for any distance or length of time I would suggest to keep looking.
