My husband is the baddest mfer that I ever did know ( in real life) he rocks out with his gallo out all the time. He owned the same pair previous and WOULD NOT settle for anything less. He takes these bad boys white H2o rafting wears them under his liners on warmer days, he hikes to obscure locations to throw our raft in the river in them, he gardens tough in them, he brings them on vacations, takes them to huge fires he has to fight instead of slippers, he even wears them church! I recently bought him another pair because his first finally gave out. It was a strap that busted. I ordered the brown and orange color and they look sharp. I own chacos myself and I will never go back to teva never. I might switch out to a keen for more rocky exploration though. Chaco's rocko's like gallos.
