I used it this last weekend on a backpacking trip to Lake Amethyst in the high Uintas. They literally have no break in period, and are super comfortable. The Goretex waterproofing was great when trudging through a stream or during a light rainfall. I didn't have any issues with wet socks. The Vibram sole was super grippy. I don't recall slipping a single time, even on wet surfaces during the hike. My only complaint was that the insole could use a bit more padding. I'll probably end up buying an insert for these.
