They're breathable, rather than waterproof, which suits my hiking style of staying on the trail, and walking through puddles rather than widening the trail like an idiot. Feet get wet on the trail, it's just part of hiking. Just make sure to dry your feet well, at night. The boots will mostly dry out by the next morning as well. Basically, still comfortable when wet.
Comfortable and breathable in the heat as well. I tried a synthetic lightweight sock, and it felt like the sweat just pooled in these. Switched back to a wool sock and the problem was solved.
Traction is good, other than on steep wet rock, or of course, ice. Haven't noticed significant change in traction at 500 miles. I only wear these on the trail, to save the sole from abrasive roads and sidewalks.
The stitching and construction is bulletproof. Not a single loose thread or separating part. I was initially concerned that the laces would saw through the fabric eyelets, but years later, there's just the hint of wear.
When I first put the shoes on, I was worried that the heel might have even too much loft, but they quickly formed to my feet, and have held up fairly well. In fact, the reason I'm here today is to buy some new sole inserts, because while the originals are still holding together, they seem a bit flat.
Good heel support, and good lateral support at the toe box. I've tried other shoes where it felt the front of my foot was spilling over the sides. I'd imagine this will vary based on your foot shape.
Edit: They made it from Springer to Damascus, about 470 additional miles on the AT in 2016. A week short of Damascus, I tore the sole in half when I caught the edge on a sharp rock, the glued repair lasted until town. Overall, 900 quality miles.
After another few weeks the sole of the shoe is detached. Soon it'll be completely off. Highly recommended not to buy from this dealer through Amazon. I notice because I'm past the 30 day period I can't return it for a replacement or to get repaired.
I believe I will even be able to use them for hot summer hikes, as the added vents should keep them cool. I matched them to Wool/Synthetic blend socks and had no issues wearing them for one week on river (8-10 hrs per day wet). I did shift to dry shoes in the evening. I had no binding or pinching and this was only after being able to break them in for about 8 hours the 2 weeks prior.
Would strongly recommend. A bit more than the jungle boot model, but well worth it.
Update... what I thought was new shoe soreness turned into a blister on the inside of the left heel, and a very tender spot on the top of my foot at the joint to my big toe, both feet. The blister I could ignore as I have hiked 25 miles in 4 days, but the sore spots are apparently from the way the boot bends while walking, the double fabric at the first lace 'digs' into my foot... am sorry but these are now a return...

Unfortunately the the sole separated from the upper fabric along the inside front of the left shoe.
No way to get it repaired.
