Very nice quality Trail runner / hiker

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Seth from Charlottesville, VA on Wednesday, December 24, 2014
This is better than I expected. I'm really happy. Wish there were more my size. At the Sierra Trading Post price, it can't be beat. I use this (recent purchase) for trail running and will use it for hiking starting in the spring (fair-weather hiker only). I'm actually about to do a 3 night overnight (as long as weather permits), and will definitely be taking these over my hiking boots. They're stickier with good tread/lug pattern, more comfortable, and much lighter - so it's a no-brainer. Not waterproof, but look to be water-resistant. I'm going to spray a waterproofer on to see if that will help any, but I don't expect a mesh shoe to be waterproof. La Sportiva makes the same shoe as GTX (Goretex) at about $60 more. I just don't think I need that, at least for now.

They seem well made, look nice on, and I think will last. Nice construction and comfortable inside seams.

The insole is pretty normal. I took them out and put in my Superfeet blue b/c my feet are terrible without them. But that's just me.

Overall, great buy from STP!
