At least for the price. I have had about 100 hard desert miles on them so far and extremely happy from the purchase. No foot pains, holds my heal while I'm hiking, and seems its made with durable materials. Me happy happy. As a side note I bought these from HnR at 90$, I saw the on sale for 45% off about 20 days later and HnR refunded the difference without issue. Thanks HnR!! Too cool.
