A great shoe, exactly what I was looking for (grip and waterproofing & general wear and forget).
the only downside to this shoe? the temp, the shoe just doesn't breath enough for a "alpine shoe" bear in mind i use these in Norway, which does not get as hot as the alps in summer. I don't think the Gore liner has anything to do with this, more the shoe's construction.
plus sides is the great heel support, the shoe feels "locked on" and the vibram sole is 100% amazing in everything (tree roots wet rock climbing, everything).
construction is 100% bomb proof! (so far)
