These shoes have great comfort and support. They would be a 5 Star shoes if it weren't for the separation of the dual density tread after < 6 miles.
After my first outing of light hiking on dirt, root and rocks I had lost nearly 30% of the tread on the left shoe, while the right shoe began to show missing tread as well.
Here's the problem. The shoe has small yellow treads that are glued onto a larger single tread. The tread will fall off creating an uneven space under the foot.
This is not acceptable for any shoe short of the dollar store. I am returning them for the better rated CD or Hardrock.
Montrail, if you can't maintain QA in China then bring production back to the States and charge $25 more for a quality product.
