These have turned into my favorite shoe to wear.

I have people remark about them everywhere I go. "Nice Shoes"

They don't have any waterproofing but they are great to wear while working out.

I have said it before.. They grip like crazy in the right conditions. They will also lay you out flat on your ass in the wrong conditions. They aren't great in wet and smooth conditions. You could be running down a trail and if you are in the loam you'd be fine. Step on a wet log or rock and you could end up on your ass.

I still love them.

I have the Goretex Backcountry version but wanted to try a larger size and didn't want the same color again. Just going up a half size made a world of difference with my feet and being able to use my favorite insoles.

I wanted to get a shoe for our trip to europe when I didn't want to wear a dress shoe. I think these make a pretty good statement of being someone from europe or looking like Eurotrash. I am going to say Germany. I am like Dieter from Sprockets.. ' I am as happy as a little girl. '

These shoes aren't really for urban environments or city use. They grip like crazy in the right conditions, but put them in a damp or wet smooth slick surface and finding any traction is almost impossible. There were many times I felt I was walking on a freshly zambonied ice rink.

These shoes are great, they help in keeping your feet from getting wet from puddles or just when it is raining. I will most likely be using them out on the trail here very soon too.. Though I don't usually run. I will also be using them as a basecamp shoe whenever I go back up to Camp Muir. They are a very light shoe that provides some sort of moisture protection. I was so jealous of the people who had a normal shoe and didn't have to clunk around in their mountaineering boots in the evening.
