Like these shoes a lot

These shoes give good stability and traction. Tried them out on a local day hike with steep hills with hard rocky trails. They did well, but I did feel one hot spot on the bottom of my big toe. Will try them again with my wool socks to see if it was the new socks I got that caused the hot spot or the shoes. Otherwise, I really like these shoes. Gave good feel of the trails but wasn't bother by all the sharp rocks I stepped on. I will have to get a few extra pairs once the hot spot issue is figured out.
