They'd be perfect if they were built better. It's the perfect cross between moccasin and off trail hiking boot and has the best sole in the industry. Other than that, their durability is lousy. The stitching starts breaking and the sole starts coming un-glued after less than 10 miles of moderate hiking. They have only single stitching in some places that boots costing half as much have double.

Materials: leather, nylon
Use: hiking
Break-in Period: none
Weight: unknown

Shoe is comfortable from first wearing---BUT- after 3 hikes the front of sole started to delaminate and tread nubs were breaking off. If I took this shoe on a month-long hike, I'd be barefoot before it was over. Save your $$$

Use: hiking
Price Paid: $120

One of the most comfortable shoes I've every owned, including tennis shoes and sneakers!! They fit like a charm from the very first time I put them on, the ride feels like walking on air. I am in the snow quite often and they are sealed up tight, never leaking or letting in any water, my foot has never been wet whatsoever. Short put, a great shoe in all regards!!

Price Paid: $109.99
