Only worn around the house for one day so...
I would not classify these as trail shoes for the east coast, they are light suede type leather that probably would never look the same after one day on our muddy, rocky trails in the ADKs and Catskills. Might use on trails out west with packed sandy surface but would use an aftermarket insole for any serious distance. Can't speak to the grip on rock but the rubber does feel very grippy to the touch. The arch felt too close to the rear of the footbed when I first tried them on but got used to it throughout the day. Again, new insoles would solve this issue but also whittle away at the savings
