My husband has been a devotee of wildcats for years so when my last pair of tennis shoes had seen better days I ordered these. The sole is a bit more stiff and flat than I am used to (been wearing adidas trail shoes lately) but they were still oddly comfortable from the moment I put them on. The traction is awesome. Took them on an 8 mile hike including a little bit of old icy snow, rocks, sand etc up 1,500+ ft and they did great. I didn't slip once. No moisture in my shoe from the snow we did go through but full on rain or creek crossings may be different. Pretty stoked so far.

This shoe performed really well for me on steep, rocky, uneven terrain. It is definitely hardy, waterproof, and super comfortable. I have very long and narrow feet, and these fit me like a glove, which was an unexpected bonus. I've even wandered around off-trail over tundra in them and they were great. They also don't feel particularly heavy, especially for a waterproof shoe. Overall I'm very pleased with them.

I bought this shoe after reading the reviews and they were right on. The toe box is great, I need room!!! The fact that there are no seams in the toe box is even more important. I wore them on cement last week (walking) and couldn't believe that I had no aches or pains after being on my feet all day. I think it is because the sole is multi-layered. The only negative I found was there is no pull on strap on the heel and it took a shoehorn to get the shoe on. I'm pretty sure this will not be a problem once they break in a bit. The elastic top that makes them waterproof is stiff, but I think they are already softening up. That's a very minor problem for shoes that feel so great!

These are great for standing around in wet weather. I use them for track meets and they are great for that use. I have run in them a few times, but they don't stand up to serious wet terrain. My socks were damp after a run in really wet conditions. However, on the road with puddles they worked great.
Arch Type: Average Arch
Best Uses: Mixed Terrain, Road Running, Wet Weather
