Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought these to replace and old pair of Vasque Gtex hikers. I love the light weight and traction, and they do a fine job in wet conditions. My caveat is that they are built for (relatively) low volume feet. I wear a size 13 and have a medium to high medium volume foot. Found that the permanently attached lacing system requires a little extra effort to get into the boot. That's not a huge issue but it's a thing. The other and more troubling issue is that (for my feet) the interior rivet that holds the top lacing hook in place is not fully covered by the tongue and thus crated a hot spot for the first dozen or so times. That's generally broken in now but I still feel it with thinner socks. And that's the volume issue.
Do I like them and would I buy them again? Yes .... but if your foot is on the higher end of the volume spectrum I'd wear them indoors on carpet for an hour or two to make sure you're comfortable.
