One of the best!
I picked these up at the warehouse as an everyday shoe/sometimes day hiker. It was love at first wear. Compared to the Merrells they were replacing, I don't think they are stiff in any way. The Merrells were like walking on 2x4s compared to these. I don't really understand the stiffness that others here are complaining about. The leather upper is also very soft easily broken in. I have a long but narrow foot and these fit well. They don't have a lot of material on the side which I tend to run into in size 13/14 shoes I buy so it's a good, snug fit. Good arch support as well. Overall, a great shoe for what I use it for.
