Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am in love with the fit of these boots and their lightweightness. For me, their fit is a marriage, but time will tell how well they hold up to the beatings. I have now worn them for about 15 trips. After the first 6 or so the walk/ski switch seemed to fail and they would not lock in ski mode. After sending them back to warranty, that mechanism feels much more solid and comfortable. However, I'm skeptical that that switch will last.

I have skied one semi-demanding line in these boots down a 45 degree couloir, about 3 meters wide at the top, on corn snow. I was happy with their performance here; they seemed stiff enough to me.

I also put them through their paces on a 15 hour trip that consisted primarily of hiking over frozen ground, many hours of boulder-hopping, and then a little mixed climbing, with maybe an hour on skis total. They're quite a bit more scratched now, but my feet weren't even complaining at the end and neither were my knees!

I love these shoes! I was a little worried that as a semi-minamalist shoe, that my feet would feel the ground and rocks beneath my feet and that it would take some getting-used to before I could run longer distances and times in them. But, the sole is made from a dense yet forgiving material which provides a solid platform underfoot. Plus, they're wonderfully light! The thickness of the sole is minimal, so don't try and tip-toe through puddles and expect to stay dry...but you shouldn't be hoping to stay dry in a mostly mesh shoe anyways. I've gone on 1.5 hour mountain trail runs with these, hiked muddy and steep mountains, done rock scrambles and summer snow crossings, boulder-hopping...these shoes feel solid and have super traction. Go rip it up!
