I do, however, have one warning about these shoes. There is a mesh material that overlies a neoprene-like inner covering as seen in the picture. For general use they do very well, but I used the old pair in the fall to do some upland bird hunting and they collected burrs and stickers like a magnet. I spent more than an hour (with a pair of tweezers) plucking the burrs out of the mesh / neoprene lining. These are great for daily wear if it lacks a need for bushwhacking, but might not be the best choice if you're going to be field stomping.
I use these to take my dogs walking on dirt trails and in grassy parks. Walking in wet grass is no problem as the shoes keep my
feet perfectly dry. That's a big necessity for me.
The traction on the bottom of the shoe is very good and I replaced the factory insole with an athletic, cushioned insole. Walking
is far more comfortable now than with the factory insole.
I think the back of the heal could be a little better at supporting the foot, but it's not terrible. These are good for walking or running trails and light
hiking. For intermediate to heavy hiking, I prefer a hiking shoe. I learned the hard way that hiking trails rated intermediate to difficult can easily cut a trail running shoe to shreds.
These were my go-to shoe until a new pair hurt my feet after a couple of months of wear (my order history shows my last purchase was 2013.) I decided to give them a try again in a half-size larger earlier this year after reading reviews about a shortened toe and people needing to go up a half-size.
The larger size fits great, do not crowd my toes, are just right in the width, provide plenty of traction on wet and dry surfaces, and are still comfortable after several months of wear. I bought another pair to have as a backup in case this shoe is discontinued.
They do let in water if I have to cross deep puddles or rainy season flooded streets but I knew they were not waterproof.
