Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
As a member of Gore MountainTechs, I have the opportunity to field test GORE-TEX gear in some of the harshest conditions. I absolutely love these shoes and have worn the heck out of them. They are super comfortable and fit my foot perfect. Lightweight, waterproof, and low profile. They have decent traction, nothing amazing, but still good. I wear them more for around town and short hikes, not backpacking or long hikes (and I actually do not wear them for jogging...they seem a little bulky for that IMO.) The abuse I've thrown at these shoes is crazy, and they've held up through it all! Very waterproof and breathable. I am sold on Vasque as my go-to brand, I just sometimes have a hard time finding the exact style I'm looking for. (I also bought Vasque M-Finity ice climbing boots and they're the best boot I've ever worn, bar none!) Can't go wrong with these shoes in my opinion.
