I bought these shoe yesterday at REI (thank you Labor Day sale!) and as soon as I walked out of the store in my stylish new kicks (which I am ashamed to admit I bought because they looked cool) I felt more like I was wearing nicely padded trail running shoes than street styled day use/light hikers.

The only downsides are the stock laces which are made from something resembling light accessory rope and are a bit stiff, but hopefully will break in, and that stupid pull loop at the back of the heel, but these only knock it down half a point from its deserved 5.

I love the look and feel of these shoes. These are my primary shoes for everyday running around, and I love them for traveling.

Since I won't know if I will be hitting the trails on all of my travels, these shoes ensure I can deal with trails if I do have to encounter them. On road, off road, they are just excellent.

I will say I needed to change out the insole with some Superfeet.
