I just wore these out of the box on a 5 day backpacking trip in the desert. They were great. They're relatively light for a hiking shoe. At first I thought they felt too stiff, and wasn't sure I'd like wearing something beefier than my usual running shoes, but they were comfortable, didn't give me any hot spots, and didn't feel overly heavy or cumbersome or hot. They are true to size, and very nice looking. The toe box is roomy. I ended up wading through water over multiple days in these and they still look great - the leather didn't stiffen up or change substantially. One bonus was that they didn't let a lot of sand in while hiking through the sandy desert, unlike my companion's airier running shoes. I would highly recommend these!
