My feet tend to get warm wearing this shoe indoors, so it is not something I would wear to the office on casual days. If you're looking for something to keep your feet dry during outdoor activities, this works perfectly.
I have worn these shoes in a variety of travel situations and they have performed extremely well. This was my only pair of shoes on a backpacking trip through Europe. I wore them every day for a month in a variety of tough situations and they were excellent. I have worn these shoes while traveling to South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. They hold up well in day-after-day usage. I have also worn them as my only pair of shoes for weekend backpacking trips into the nearby mountains.
The soles of the shoes have a great tread, which works well in a variety of terrains (including bouldering, loose rock, mud, dirt, asphalt, you name it). They will tend to track mud, so if you are in mud, you will need to take some time to clean them properly that evening.
The Gore-Tex keeps the shoes dry in most (although not all) situations and is very breathable. If you step into a creek/river where the water flows over the top of the shoe (i.e. the instep area), it will leak inside. I've done that a couple of times and have had to dry them out overnight. So try to avoid going into water more than 3-4" deep to avoid getting the inside wet.
Probably the best endorsement I can give for these shoes is that I am willing to pay full price for them on my third go-around. I'm usually pretty price sensitive and look for shoes on sale, but this is the shoe for which I won't compromise.
