Just what I was looking for.
I was very reluctant to try a Gore-Tex shoe, but I wanted a warm shoe to run long distances on snow/ice conditions. Once I received the shoe, I took them straight to the Columbia Gorge and did such a run. The Hurricanes performed very well for being straight out of the box and running up very steep, snowy, and icy conditions for a long period of time. I received some small, yet expected, blisters. Other than that, these shoes are exactly what I was looking for. They have excellent traction, support, rigidity, and allowed me to stand around for several minutes without letting my feet freeze.
