Love the shoe, the look, the fit, and the recycled material with hemp. HATE that my feet were cold and wet every day just walking through tall grass in the mist. Would be nice for a day of warm hiking on trails or a nice walk in the city.

I bought these to go on a trip that included extensive walking. These looked pretty good, from the perspective of an outdoorsy gal. And although though I never got blisters, Patagonia does not quite have the arch support down yet. I will probably try another Patagonia shoe in a year or two...after they work the arch support thing out. Also, they were made in China.
