So I just got back from my first hike in these bad boys. As first impressions go, these are pretty damn good. I honestly dont know how everyone has managed to be so lucky as to not have to break them in first, though. By the end of my 2 hour adventure my feet were beginning to hurt. They'll need to be broken in for sure.
Things I like about them:
Grippy as hell on rocks, loose pack, hard pack, whatever!
The "Impact Brake System" which really does what it says
Pretty damn water resistant
Things I don't like about them:
Toe box - They're new, so Ill let it slide but we may have some issues if the toe box doesn't wear in soon.
They run a little bit small
They get hot! (I was wearing wool socks though)
All in all Im pleased with them so far. Ill have to break them in and really test them this summer before I can give a proper review. Heres a photo for you guys.
