Pretty solid Trail Hiker

Like the Badrock OutDry, these are pretty decent for trail hiking and or fast packing. I wear minimal shoes for trail running even on 100 mile runs, so it does not pay to wear a shoe that is double the weight on a long trail run. The cushion is nice on these for carrying a substantial load. I have used these on 5 fast pack trips now and they really perform quite well. The tread is aggressive, the cushioning around the ankles is soft and flexible. The toe box has enough room for proper phalange flexion. There is ample protection on this shoe especially on the toe kick. All in all I think these are a decent shoe. Like I said they are too heavy for trail running for me, but may work well for someone that does not mind the extra weight and enjoys the added cushion. I wear a size 10.5 in most shoes and these fit me just fine.
