rated 2.5 of 5 stars Comfortable, but poor durability. After approximately 10-15 relatively short hikes the soles delaminated severely. One is now only attached at the toe. The other is about 25% detached. They were comfortable and lightweight. Just wish they'd lasted longer.  Full review

Torre GTX

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good trekking boot. Bought these used in size 15; Normally I wear a 13 so they are a touch long in front and I tend to stub my toe. Otherwise they work pretty well for me. Good arch support and lacing system is excellent. Vibram sole has a sole pattern I would characterize as mud shedding medium traction. Seems to work OK on desert scrubs and rock hiking. Ankle support is not spectacular, but this is a mid-height trekking boot. Not a heavy hiker or mountaineering boot. Not sure this form factor… Full review

FluidFlex II

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is the perfect trail/road hybrid for me. It features soft yet responsive midsole, aggressive yet road-friendly outsole, and an upper that fits like a sock...but it's not quite "perfect." Plain and simple: I love this shoe. Montrail's Fluidflex 2 has worked out to be nearly the perfect shoe for my foot and the running that I do. My typical activity is 50/50 moderately technical trail and road, so my aim was to find a single shoe that would do most everything for me. That's not to say that I… Full review

Torre GTX

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Comfortable at first if a bit narrow for my feet. Toe box blew out fast as a result. One of the eyes pulled through the leather. Found the boots to be more comfortable with two lowest sets of eyelets left unthreaded and unlaced. Dangerously slippery on wet surfaces, and I mean seriously dangerous, just walking on wet metal grates in the street or wet wooden decking. I have literally fallen flat on my back like in cartoons by just casually hopping onto a deck wet with dew in the morning! Got these… Full review

Mountain Masochist

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I torture tested this shoe on the JMT for 150 miles over one 12k rock pile after another. Wear on the soles was noticeable, but they gave excellent slick rock traction. Forded three rivers, same story. They dried quickly and I never got one blister. The blister free factor was, by itself, a huge point. Cuts, abrasions, a partial peeling of the toecap and heel rubber, but everything held together until I could effect repairs. This trail is too much for a running shoe, but these held up as well as… Full review
