These shoes are very comfortable. They have good grip on the soles and they look great. However, I got mine three months ago and the soles are already falling off. I've hiked in them only a handful of times and used them for trail running twice. Other than that, it's been just around town and work.
They still look great but I'm going to have to get them resoled. If the soles would stay intact, I'd never buy another shoe.
Materials: leather, vibram 30% recycled rubber sole
Use: short to long dayhikes / rough to moderate trails with w/ daypack
Break-in Period: They were perfect after about 10-15 miles of trail use
Weight: 28 ozs.
Price Paid: $110
Very comfortable and secure approach shoe, plus you can even do some moderate rock climbing in them. Durability is top notch, the perwanger leather is great. I have about 150 trail miles on them and they still look new.

Make no mistake about it--we love the Patagonia Huckleberry. It's not just because of the eco-friendly design or the exceptionally comfortable Poli-Cork footbed. The Huckleberry gives outdoor enthusiasts pure bouldering functionality with specific edging and smearing zones along the Vibram sole. While a lot of manufacturers offer approach shoes or climbing shoes, it's tough to find bouldering-specific footwear that you can wear from the parking lot to the top of the scramble and back. Patagonia's Huckleberry gets all the features right with a rugged Perwanger leather upper, reinforced climbing toe and external counters for edge hold. Like other Patagonia footwear, the Huckleberry also has plenty of earth-friendly components like midsoles made with 15% recycled EVA material and recycled Poliyou foam in the footbeds. The Vibram bouldering sole even has a special Ecostep compound made with up to 30% recycled rubber.
