Excellent product, I've had mine for several years now and finally wore them out last weekend. I have a fused right foot though which wears out shoes exponentially faster than a normal foot would. (my left shoe is no where near worn out).
These have been worn exclusively when I am canyoneering. They evacuate water quickly upon exiting the watercourse. They are very light weight. They grip the rocks well even when wet, and give good ankle support.
The only complaint I have is they can get a little hot when hiking away from the water in the hot sun for a while.
