Excellent go anywhere shoes!
I bought these shoes for backpack traveling, light hiking, everyday casual wear, and a good all-weather shoe. So far they have been excellent. They are extremely comfortable. After a 2 week Europe trip, they still look brand new. I also intend to use these shoes for wet conditions, rain, snow. Gore-Tex should be right at home in these conditions. I'd definitely own another pair of these in the future.
