So far, so good

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Day Hiker and Runner from Utah on Wednesday, January 21, 2015
These boots are pretty heavy duty for me. I bought these to replace my Vasque day hikers. With the Teva Riva's vibram sole, high top and classic boot lacing system, these feel much more substantial than a sneaker-like day hiker. They felt heavy at first on my feet, but the heavier sole keeps stones and uneven terrain impacts at a minimum. The rhubarb color is a nice switch from my usually neutral-colored shoe pallette. The tongue rubbed initially, but it was a lacing issue which I was able to easily adjust. They cleaned up nicely after a walk in clay soil. Comfort is good. I ordered a half size up to allow for a thicker winter sock and for for toe box space because I like to jog down the trail on a descent and don't want my toes slamming the front of my shoes. Overall, I recommend, especially at the discounted price with coupon of $85. Awesome.
