Very Good Buy
These shoes are worth every penny. I have corrective inserts for my flat feet and unlike many other trail shoes, they fit perfectly. I had the chance to test the Gore-Tex and water-proofness of the shoes and they are 110% water proof. They took a heavy downpour of rain for 3 and a half hours and my feet were completely dry. Unfortunetly they do not have Thinsulate so they aren't unbelievably warm, but this wasn't a deal breaker. They do run a bit narrow, but I wore them in within a day or two. I am overly pleased with these shoes. If you need a heavy duty shoe for lots of activity, get this shoe.
