These are not the best, nor the worst running shoes I've worn. Definitely not suited for road running (yeah, I know, they are not meant to be used for road running). For trail running, they are pretty good. They are supposed to have some Goretex, but don't be fooled, run through a bit of snow and your feet will get wet. For my first run with them I took them exclusively through snow and my feet were extremely cold and soaked within minutes (yes, the snow did come in through the fabric, not through the opening).
Second run I did very light running on ice. Pretty much the same result, not too soaked, but some water came in inside the shoe.
All in all, its fairly decent, I'm still keeping them. Here I am using them to do the first few moves of the nose in elcap. No, I didn't finish the climb solo.
