I bought these about 7 months ago for a trip to British Columbia, Canada. The weather was cold and these shoes were fantastic. The following month I went to Africa on Safari and with trepidation I brought these as my primary shoes for the trip. They were great for Africa as well if you're wearing shorts in weather over 80 degrees. Under 80 degrees they were great With long pants. It does take a few weeks of constant wear to break them in though. The quality is 1st class.
