Gandas...not worth the $$
Just bought a pair of these. I really liked the tight fit ankle support. The soles are pretty good too. What I could not get over was that the tongue is not sewed into the upper past the toe. This allows dirt, rocks, debris and whatever else you are hiking in to get into the shoes and raw up your feet. This is a problem especially with the intricate lace system (which gives a great fit, but a royal #$%* to unlace and let out the pebbles). Get these if you get them free through a hook-up and never deviate from an established trail. Otherwise, don't blow the money. I believe they have some work to do before having the balls to ask so much money for the Gandas.
