Ok, I hiked all over Colorado and these shoes did what they told me what they would do, although they had a couple of cons.
Pros: Comfy as hell, they fit like a glove, were super light and they grip like a cheetah wearing track spikes!
I hiked up a summer ski run still covered in snow and they gripped very well while in a steep incline.
Also, as luck has it, it rained the whole time and these shoes were the only thing that stayed dry, even the tent got wet.
Cons: Hurt the bend in my toes as I broke them in (although i did break them in for the first time hiking 3 miles up), they had a chunk of side sole come hanging off (might have been hiker error)
Pro +: Backcountry.com is helping me out with these few cons......without that I would still recommend these to a freind as they are really good hiking shoes.
