I bought these after checking out a friends pair. Used them to compete in the North Georgia Adventure Race right out of the box with no problems at all. They have incredible traction (except for on slab by rocks thanks to the cleat like bottoms which equal a relatively small contact area on the rock), and are super comfy...Sort of fit like a big sock. They have a minimal heel-toe drop too with makes them a good fit for pose/barefoot running techniques. I feel that they run pretty true to size also.

My only complaint is that the lugs on the balls of my feet and at the heel are almost completely gone - as shown in the pictures below. I have worn them everyday for the past 6 months though so that was sort of to be expected.

Overall...great shoe.

How durable is the sole? I'm looking for a shoe I can do anything in. The skylite is my first choice, due to the less aggressive sole, but no where seems to have them in my size (~45). If I were to get these, would those heavy lugs get destroyed by doing stuff on anything but trails?

I'm not going to lie, it's a nice jacket. But it really doesn't feel as burly as I think it should be, the face fabric feels as though if you were to take a tumble while shredding in the backcountry it would take some damage. I returned my marmot softshell for this and looking back i'm not sure I would do it again. While this would be warmer, i would like to see a harder face fabric for a jacket of this price even though I got it 50% off (the Hercules version)

I had some MAJOR issues with sweat condensing on the inside of this jacket. To the point where my fleece under it was wring-out-able, literally was soaked with condensation (not sweat off of my body). Expected more from a 300 bone jacket. It did keep water from the outside, outside of the jacket though. My pro shell arc' pants however breathed without a problem.
