A sturdy shoe with a good fit for my somewhat wider than normal feet. This is the second pair I've gotten. I walked the first pair's tread off after nearly two years of constant daily usage - both for everyday walking about and trail hiking with climbing packs - but the rest of the shoe was still in good condition. After I walked through the first pair, I went back to REI to pick up a new pair, only to find REI no longer carried this. Dismayed, I cast about to other stores until someone suggested backcountry.com as a source. Bingo! Happy feet again. Now, soon as my budget recovers from other hits, if there are still any of these left here, I'm ordering a backup pair so I don't go without when I walk through the current pair.
