Love these boots for easy trails, not too steep of hills. They're light and comfortable.
HOWEVER, when I started going up steeper, rockier trails, they didn't work for me because the sole is too flexible (my feet were tired after the soles bent over every rock and twig), and on steeper trails, my heel slips around enough to cause blisters.
I would recommend these for easy day hikes. I would NOT recommend for backpacking (really, any pack over about 20 pounds, these shoes are not supportive for backpacking).

My dad LOVES his Kayland Contacts. He has bought several extra pair in case they change. :)

However, they don't fit my feet. I have a narrow heel and it feels like it still slips around. Also, I have a high arch, and if i use a backpacking insole, there isn't enough room in the toebox (i have a wide forefoot).

I had to order bigger than usual size. I'm usually an 8 in running and hiking shoes. The 8 was too small in these boots. 8.5 would have been ok if I didn't want to use other insoles. With insoles, I think I would need a 9 -- a full size bigger than usual
