I bought these shoes after tossing out a pair of Vasques and Merrells. These shoes seem to fit my foot better, have a better cushioned sole, and I haven't had any defects with these as opposed to the Vasques I previously had. I will be taking these things with me on my AT thru-hike in '08. Great shoes!!
