The good, the bad, and the, well, the bad....
Good - Fits great right out of the box. My waterproofing on the first pair of boots was solid, was able to cross shallow streams with no problems.
Bad - The waterproofing didn't last long. Water started pouring in around the back of the heel.
Bad - Second pair of boots (yes, I was silly) started coming apart after about 50 miles of hiking, trail hiking, not backcountry hiking.
Bad - Tread isn't great for slick conditions.
So, no, don't buy these. Go with Keen Targhee II's instead. Better tread, great waterproofing, and same price range.
