Good, solid shoes

I was looking for a good, solid pair of hiking shoes for general purpose hiking (local trails). Didn't want/need anything too heavy, but wanted something more than trail running shoes. These fit the bill. They are lightweight, good, sturdy soles, with strong/supportive lacing system. Take a little breaking in (left shoe had a pinch point under the tongue that took a few wears to get used to/break in). Lacing system is good, but time will tell if it holds up. One concern is that if lace breaks, not sure that it can be replaced, as it is a very thin (1mm or so) "cord" rather than standard lace. Fit is good, according to size. Plan to take them to Yosemite in a couple of weeks for 3-4 days of hiking - that will be the big test. So far, quite satisfied and would recommend.
