Really Good, Hearty, Hiking Shoes - very satisfied.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Greg from California on Wednesday, September 21, 2016
I purchased a pair for my son and myself and waited to write this review until after we used them...and use them we did. We backpacked / hiked up in Northern Yosemite on a fairly arduous multi-day hike at altitude. We had worn them around the house a few times but they don't need much "breaking in". Personal highlights: They are very sturdy and not 'overly heavy' for the weight to sturdy ratio. Also what i really liked most about them is after all day long hikes the top surface material allows your foot to really breathe but simultaneously does an excellent job of keeping micro-dirt, dust and soil from entering in and making your socks and feet dirty. It also repelled the mild bits of water we ran into. After three days in the same socks and shoe - my feet were fine. My son, 1/2 size larger experienced two mild blisters on both his 2nd toes. I believe he got a 1/2 size too large. Other nice feature, the tongue comes up snugly around your front ankle also keeping debris out. The sole is grippy and solid - we were on trails, moraines, slab, and talus fields.
