A very comfortable shoe once it's broken in (took about 2 1/2 weeks for me). The rubber toe is awesome, I don't know how many times it's saved the front of my shoes from being gored by gritty sandstone. he traction is dreamy and the shoes have done a good job at withstanding a pretty good overall beating. The only quam I have is that my feet get all hot and sweaty in them, not a very good ventilating system. Great for colder weather hiking but wouldn't recommend for warmer weather hiking.
