They are comfortable and don't collapse over a good hike. Unlike American Shoes the back of the shoe does not have a finger loop to help with putting the shoes on. There is one for the tongue, which I always can grab even when the shoe is tied. Not having one of on the top of the back of the shoe makes pulling it on is more difficult.
I like the shoe insert. At first it feels a little too firm, but over time it must shape to the foot. I like that it has replaceable soles. It is more waterproof than the Merrells I have. The soles don't slip as well. Compared to the Merrell Chameleon 5. I prefer the feel of the Merrell, but The construction of the Hanwag may last better. Certainly the design of the Hanwag appears to be built with a long and useful relationship with my feet where the Merrells have in the past not lasted very long

I was looking for a pair of durable hiking shoes (not made in China) and these fit the bill. I am a woman who normally wears a size 8 US or 39-39.5. The UK size 6 fit perfectly. These shoes will probably last for years!
