Only for light dayhikes

Love these boots for easy trails, not too steep of hills. They're light and comfortable.
HOWEVER, when I started going up steeper, rockier trails, they didn't work for me because the sole is too flexible (my feet were tired after the soles bent over every rock and twig), and on steeper trails, my heel slips around enough to cause blisters.
I would recommend these for easy day hikes. I would NOT recommend for backpacking (really, any pack over about 20 pounds, these shoes are not supportive for backpacking).

I disagree with Lori, and agree with Ism**. These boots are good for heavy hiking as well as day hiking. They're light in weight but plenty rugged and supportive.
