On the bottom, they say "Winter," but it's all-weather, snug-fitting (I usually wear 8s, and these are perfect).

I took my Teocalli XCRs to Costa Rica and stayed high and dry while my boyfriend's shoes turned to mush. I wore them on mountains, on horses, in waterfalls, dirt roads, rock roads, through cloud forests, you name it.

I scrambled up wet, mossy rock faces, off hanging vines, and went rappelling with them, and they stayed tight and grippy on every surface I put them on. I immersed them in streams and rivers and they got cold and damp on the outside up to the ankle, but paired with Fox River AXT socks ($10), I stayed dry -- until the water poured in over the tops (these should be released as a mid-hiker edition and they'd be PERFECT for general hiking shoes). The Nike AIR heel cushion was comfortable and conforming to rock-faces, and the front were sticky as heck and gripped every-which-way.

These blue-and-greys are attractive enough to wear as everyday shoes, and I'm so glad to have bought them. I paid $70 on clearance at Scheel's and wish I could find another pair! They are completely worth it. I totally plan to wear them in Nebraska slush, mud, and ice this winter.

They are my number 1 choice for sloppy and cold weather trail and even road running. I also snowshoe in the winter and it is my shoe of choice to strap in to my snowshoes. The shoes are very stable and keep my feet warm and dry. When I learned Nike was discontinuing production, I got online and ordered two pairs to hold in reserve. I am anxious to try the new Teocalli model.

Materials: XCR
Use: Trail and road running, snowshoeing
Break-in Period: 70 miles
Weight: 185

Living in Michigan, we get lots of slop and these are great to be able to run in the snow, rain, sleet, and muck in general. Very supportive and very comfortable. I wear them for day-to-day comfort as well as pounding the back 40 on trails or even hiking. If you're a trail runner or hiker, these are the shoes for you. Thanks Nike and Gore-Tex.
