These hiking boots/shoes are the best I have ever worn. With the stealth rubber soles, I can climb near vertical walls and without slipping. The break-in time was zero... they were very comfortable the first time out. I even backpacked in with a 75-pound pack to Dusy Basin and then climbed North Pal and Thunderbolt. Durability is very good also.
