I've used these shoes now for a while and can conclude that they are one the most comfortable shoes ever to wear. I´ve used them on long hikes and running in bad weather. They do get wet, even though they have water resistant material your going to get wet, there´s no getting away. But for the comfort its worth the price alone, great soles that gets you where you want to go and you don't feel any pain or discomfort after a long time walking or running. The good part is also the shoelaces, running with other shoes like Asics or others have laces that open or break after a "crazy run" but these are treated and wont go up!
