Worked for Me
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used 5 pairs of these on my 2668 mile PCT thru-hike. Overall I loved these shoes; I find them durable, comfortable and breathable.

Lifespan: first the stock insole wears out (~300mi) then the support becomes compressed (~450 mi) then the upper starts to wear through near the toes (~600 mi) then the sole gets worn out. Note I wore these with a ~30lb backpack.

I have a wide, high-volume foot. The toe box is roomy with a descent toe bumper, could be wider. I usually cut the fabric above the tongue because it became tight when my feet swell, but this is not a problem for most people.

I think the traction was sufficient but not aggressive.

I love the Wildcat 2.0 but the original Wildcats do not work for me so if you need more room than the Wildcats provide give these a try, they worked for me.

In the pic the right shoe has 700+ miles on it
