After trying these shoes out on the muddy, rocky spring trails in the wet pacific northwest I am happy to report they've met my expectations and I am quite happy with them. My feet stay dry, cool and comfortable. They grip well on rough terrain and I love the downhill braking. I normally wear a 9 in this type of shoe but based on other reviews ordered a 8.5 (40) and am glad I did because they fit well with plenty of room for my toes to expand or to swap out insoles. I'm planning to take them to Arizona for desert hiking as well. Highly recommend!
