Proper fit right outta the box!

    I loved these right out of the box! No hotspots or anything on my feet! I typically wear a 9-9.5 in most shoes. However I downsized to an 8.5 and the fit was perfect and comfortable.

    I have used these already in some hot desert conditions and your feet will get warm on account of the Gore-Tex insert, I was able to handle it however. I recommend using lightweight breathable socks on hot days. NO COTTON!

    I got these because I frequent the Pacific Northwest and need that waterproof-ness.

    Pretty good shoe

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I really like these shoes. They are super comfy once you get through the initial break in period. They are a bit stiff at first. They only get 3 stars because of the tread. It isn't the best for snow. I was hoping they would be a good outside and around the office shoe, but it falls a bit short in snow.

    One of the best I've owned.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these back in April as a work and hike shoe. I've wore them every day to work, done three 14ers and hiked another five 13ers with these and I'm still wearing them. I've destroyed Merrells in less than two months. I'm possibly going to get a year out of these shoes.

    Price/durability is hard to beat on these!

    The Best Shoe 4 Golf Course Maintenance

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    The most important part of a work shoe for people in the golf course industry is reliable waterproofing. I went through two pairs of the GTX Merrell Moab Midboot and each one failed me after a couple of weeks.

    I have put these Havocs through hell and after two months I have still not experienced wet feet.These shoes have been through muddy holes and hours of walk mowing in the rain and are still holding up great. Couldnt ask for a better shoe at this point.

    How do these compare to the NorthFace...

    How do these compare to the NorthFace Hedgehog III GTX XCRs? I'm looking for some hiking shoes for Hawaii

    Best Answer

    The biggest difference you will notice between the Havoc and the Hedgehog is protection in rough terrain. The Havoc is designed with a leather wrap to protect your skin and Snake Plate underneath to protect your pads from shock. Honestly, if you are going to be hiking volcanic rock in Hawaii these Havoc's might be the way to go.

    Would these be good for trail running/adventure...

    Would these be good for trail running/adventure racing?

    You may find them a bit heavy for speeding along the trails. I'd also suggest looking at a non-Gore Tex shoe for adventure racing. In a race, your feet are going to get wet and the Gore Tex will prevent the water that gets into the shoe from draining back out again.
