My Review

It took about 30 miles of uphill hiking to break these shoes in. I had blisters on the back of my heel for a while, but it was not too bad. After the mileage they were very comfortable yet tough. I also used them for backpacking and scrambling and they worked great. It is a very good combination of heavy backpacking shoes and light hiking shoes.

Prices range up to $250.00 depending on where you buy them.
