Don't pass them up if you're cheap
Great deal here folks! At first I was skeptical of the price, but the shoe's overall quality and fit is excellent. However, as others have indicated, tightly lacing to the top of the shoe can cause some discomfort. I wore them right out of the box on a 2-day, 23-mile backpacking trip, and they were great. I will never wear heavy backpacking boots again on a backpacking trip -- these are the way to go!
