This might be anecdotal but the first time I ran in these I took a minute off of my mile. I love the shoes they feel great and give me the cushion I need. I got the goretex version which I'd probably not suggest unless you actually do a lot of running in the rain. Also - I'm a 12.5 and probably should have gone with the 13 as they are a little bit snug, but even so I have not had any problems with blisters and just ran a 10k with them.

I'm not certain that I actually needed toe socks without toe shoes, but I do notice that it seems to help a bit with moisture control, trade-off is that it takes a bit longer to put on your socks. These are comfortable and fit well for my standard size, I also haven't gotten any blisters in my new running shoes.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

Comfortable, quick dry, durable, light weight, compactable. It's seems pretty true that they don't stink so bad after a long day of traveling - but I still don't recommend it and honestly only have cursory evidence, I haven't done any thorough testing. I can tell you that a few pairs will last literally years.

My previous boot was an Asolo Fugitive but I like these even better, my feet aren't particularly wide in the middle but my toe box needs alittle more room, these fit like a glove. Walking around they are sturdy, great support, goretex liner keeps the water out. The construction is awesome, classic leather backpacking boot, these seem really well made.

They feel a bit heavier then my last pair but not much, and then these are sturdier boots, I knew I was making that trade and I'm happy I did, I expect I'll be wearing these still in 5 years.

Took a package of AlpineAire 5 Grain Fruit Nut Instant Cereal on a canoing trip through the Minnesota Boundary waters, it was real easy to make, just added boiling water and mixed. Tastes a bit like oatmeal with some sunflower seeds and dried fruit mixed in, not at all bad but a little plain, but it filled me up for the long day of paddling ahead.
