Excellent

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I had the Vasque Juxt hiking shoe, but wanted something more supportive, tougher and waterproof for longer trips. After researching at a lot of different boots, I found and liked these, and eventually bought em.

I've used them in light rain, snow, mud and dry trails, and they perform great in any of these. The fabric that connects the tongue to the rest of the shoe does not bunch up to become uncomfortable,but you do have to tuck it in properly. The laces are a good length and easy to manage. The pull loop in the back of the shoe is in the perfect position, some shoes have it too far down that it doesn't work too good.

UPDATE:
I wore them for exploring downstream of a creek. I was able to stand stationary in about three inches of flowing water for about a minute, just because I could. I had no water at all get inside the shoe. Love them even more now
