My SECOND favorite hiking shoes. The old style was slightly better.

I've worn the Wildcats for almost six years as my primary hiking shoes and I love them. However, I like this upgrade slightly less than the last version. I prefer the Wildcat 2.0 to these for a couple reasons. One, the forefoot seems a little wider. On trails it's not a big deal but off trail it tends to roll a little and doesn't give you feet as much stability. Two, the old lacing with the scree shield was more comfortable and it flexed better in the front of the shoe than this new lacing system. Other than those two minor modifications, this is a great hiking shoe. I still prefer it to anything else I've tried—and I go in and try on new shoes about every six months just to see—so I'd rate it FOUR and ONE HALF STARS if that were available. Great shoe.
