This is hands down the best shoe I have ever owned.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $169.99

This is hands down the best shoe I have ever owned. I originally wanted to get the olive coloured non-Goretex, but they were discontinued. I therefore purchased the GTX and was simply amazed.

Almost 2 years later and the shoe still fits like the day I bought them. Also, they fit like I had been wearing them for a few months the first time I slipped into them. The Goretex was such a treat and kept my feet dry and warm.  

Great for casual or for light hiking, I used them plenty for both purposes.
