I believe a good pair of shoes has to feel right the minute you put them on. I couldn't quite figure out what was wrong with the interface between these shoes and my feet. Construction was solid, they were attractive, and waterproof (I am told.) But all the walking on wood, tile and carpet at home just didn't make me want to put them on againand again. I had recently had a mild forefoot strain and my Ecco dress shoes felt fine, but upon putting these Hegehogs on, every step felt like the right foot was sprained again, and I just couldn't look forward to a walk-extensive vacation in them. I must need a little less flexibility/more stiffness.

the shoes are very comfortable with great support. I do recommend getting one half size larger if you plan to wear heavy socks. I also put in an arch support. with these changes , they have become mt favorite shoes to wear for walking, hiking etc.

This is my second pair of these shoes, and they are durable, comfortable, and versatile. I use them daily around town as well as on day hikes, for mountain biking, and even some moderate overnights with a backpack, and in all seasons--in the desert and on the snow. So, I imagine they get several hundred miles on them. Never had a problem, the only reason this is my second pair is that with all the daily wear on the first, the tread has a little less grip than a new pair, which is expected normal wear and tear. These have lasted longer and remained in better condition than other trail shoes from other major brands.
