Product Description

The GoLite Quest Lite Waterproof shoe steps up to meet cold weather with classic style. This men's casual boot features a waterproof leather upper with seam-sealed construction for total protection. The dual-density EVA midsole lends support and cushioning, while the Gripstick rubber outsole provides reliable traction and durability in the GoLite Quest Lite Waterproof boot.

GoLite Footwear is committed to meeting the needs of those of you who live to be in the outdoors, by delivering the ultimate in all-conditions performance, fit, and durability in an impossibly light shoe. Be it trail, travel, mountains, or the cobblestones of Europe, GoLite Footwear has literally turned shoes upside down, resulting in a suspension system that individually isolates protrusions from the ground and envelops the surface with a smoother, more stable foot strike. Their suspension system allows your foot to make better contact with uneven terrain, while reducing movement and impact on your foot and body. Refered to as "Whole Body Stability," the technology effectively allows your GoLite shoes to absorb abuse from the terrain so your legs don't have to, and eliminating up to a third of injury-provoking motion your foot will endure as compared to a conventional shoe. GoLite Footwear: Soft Against the Ground - the ultimate in comfort, performance, fit, and stability.

    Really looked forward to getting this boot out. It was most of what I was looking for: waterproof, wider toe-box, zero-drop, lightweight. Out of the box I was impressed. Compared to most boots (And my old ones), these were 1/2 the weight. Grip was fantastic. I would have preferred even less between me and the ground, but it was good. There isn't any insulation, so unless you are active, it is not the best snow boot. The interior is a very nice soft material, really comfy. Here's where it went downhill for me. 1. There was almost too much room inside the boot. It took a little effort to lace down to where I felt I could do quick lateral movements without sliding internally. 2. The lacing - if I kept them I would have replaced the lacing. It's really hard to tighten up and I would have liked some lace locks. 3. I could have lived with 1&2, but the ankle collar was very uncomfortable for me (and I returned them). My ankles do not like boots much, so this might be a non-issue for you.

    I absolutely love these boots because they really are minimalist and are extremely comfortable. Mine have held up for a year and a half and have taken a lot of wear and tear. I wear them almost every day in addition to hiking and backpacking. After a year and a half both of my boots developed tears in the black rubber strip that attaches the leather to the sole, so essentially I have a big hole in each one. I guess they aren't the sturdiest, but I like them so much that it's worth it to me to have to buy a replacement.
    As another reviewer mentioned, they aren't good for snow. However, I hike with these in Arizona year round and even in extreme heat these are more breathable than any other leather over-ankle boots are likely to be. I also hike with them in the northeast (MA/ME/NH) and in Alaska. My feet never get too cold unless my socks are wet (my fault for wearing them while crossing a stream that went halfway up my shins). My only complaint is that the traction on wet rock is *very* poor. This is the one factor that bothers me when considering buying another pair, because now most of my outdoor activities are in Alaska where wet rocks, wet tundra, and snow make up the majority of my backpacking. So if you will be using these in a fairly dry area, they're great for anything. If you'll be doing a lot of river crossings or backpacking in the rain, you can find boots better suited to those needs.
