These are nice waterproof shoes, the full-leather model. The interior is mesh lined, which provides nice comfort in summer. The sole made by TNF is good and provides a good grip on wet terrain. The X-2 shank makes it rigid enough for some rough trails, and still give suppleness to the stride. It is really a solid shoe, and quite waterproof, even if there are many seams on the upper. Although it is verrrry comfortable and nicely shock absorbing for long urban outings on the concrete, I wouldn't wear it for trail running.

That said, I used them in many many outdoor pursuits, as a camp shoe, or biking, dayhiking, even rock scrambling ( the toe rubber is pretty grippy) and... hitchhiking! Great shoe, little costly but got mine in a discount sale for 50$ !!!!

Got these with the Superfeet Synergizer Hiking Footbed…

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

Break-in Period: 50 Miles
Weight: 2.2 lbs
Price Paid: $130 CND

Got these with the Superfeet Synergizer Hiking Footbed (30.00 CND) and it's like walking on a cloud. Except for the round laces that came with the boot these are perfect. Very comfortable fit and the deep lugs on the sole provide excellent traction. I suggest using the NIK WAX Waterproofing before using these boots.
