Great shoe. I appreciate the craftmanship of the shoe since it looks and feels well made. I like the moderately stiff feel of the soles and foot bed balanced by the soft feel of the leather. This shoe does not feel like a trail runner with goretex and vibram soles.....its closer to a low cut light weight boot because it provides more stability in hitting trails. Other positives characteristics of the shoe: high quality leather, vibram soles, goretex lining, reinforced toe, soft interior, great variety in sizes, made in Italy and light in weight.
My complaints are the thin "grasshopper" green colored lace loops...I hope they hold but only time will tell. Some complain that the shoe seems narrow but for my feet the shoe feel comfy! There is enough room to replace the paper thin insoles for thicker ones. And one aesthetic complaint: only comes in one color...who the hell would buy a light grey suede hiking shoe? Me.
Overall: Scarpa Mystic is an awesome shoe!
