- Familiarity: I've used it several times
great shoe, fits, acts, responds like all my other NF shoes have and do.. great traction under the water on rocks, hiked across several creeks a river and 13 miles with my sons backpacking, HOWEVER, one day of break-in without socks is not enough before you do 13mi. got the blood and blisters to prove it. but its all good now, wore them last week on another adventure and its great. and the water comes out of them great, no slippage inside the shoe, water rolls off the top perfectly, dries well too.
