Kenneth N.wrote a review of Patagonia Footwear Drifter A/C GTX Hiking Shoe - Men's on September 20, 2011
Bought the Drifter shoe for hiking half of the Appalachian Trail. Bought a half size up, which was good for wearing a liner sock under my hiking sock and also to account for foot widening after walking every day. They have held up great so far! Zero blisters, and I didn't spend more than 2 days breaking them in. Ample room side to side in the toe box. Thought the rubber toewrap on the front was a little low top to bottom for my big toe, but as long as that nail is clipped its much better. I have a wider foot and have not had an issue side to side. The grippy sole is great for the rocks. They breathe really well, my feet never seem sweaty. I'll get back with another review after a few hundred more miles. So far, so great!
