Great-looking comfy shoe for urban walking or rugged hikes

Reviewed by Arty1 from Washington, DC on Saturday, December 6, 2014
I've had these for several months. I love these shoes. They are what I was looking for... a slimmer, sleeker version of a hiking shoe for standing outdoors painting artwork in all types of weather, gardening, and also simply walking/hiking. I need to protect my feet from sharp rocks, protruding tree roots etc. as I don't focus on my footing when carrying art stuff or garden stuff. These shoes make me more sturdy on my feet, which is awesome! The reinforced toe area and the elevated (slightly) sole is perfect for good traction and foot protection. These are nice and light too, which was a concern, as they look like they could be heavy... but they are not. They are indeed weather-proof as I've worn them when it's wet out and muddy. My only gripe is that one of the sole inserts (not the other) 'migrates' as I walk sometimes. I guess some tape or glue will fix that, but its not a big deal. I really like the blue color too... lots of compliments on these.
