EDIT. I like the ways these fit, but the right boot developed a small tear in the waterproof lining on the inside. They work fine in snow and slush, but I rode my bike with them in a steady rain, and my right foot was thoroughly soaked. To do a warranty, I have to send them back to Teva ($20 for shipping) in hopes of getting online store credit since they don't sell this version anymore. That means, I paid $50 on Amazon, and extra $20 to ship them back, in hopes of getting a small credit to buy a more expensive shoe on their own website. I feel stuck with them at this point even though they don't do what I had hoped they would. Oh well. Just be warned that the inside waterproof lining is either defective in my case, or really weak and tears easily.
I bought these for biking in the rain and the snow. They do not breathe well, so I do not expect to wear them in warm weather. For what I am doing they are perfect though. They have good traction. They fit just right. The style is okay, but that's fine by me. The way the tongue sits against my ankle is bothersome, so I have to pull it away from my foot, but otherwise, I don't have any complaints. Great buys.
The grip on slick, wet rocks/compact dirt is not phenomenal but if you know that, you can plan accordingly. The membrane has never failed me and I've had these completely soaked for hours on end and I've had much nicer boot membranes fail in similar conditions, take that how you will.
I bought these because they were like $35 on Amazon and I wanted a waterproof "Hiking Shoe" that fits more like a running shoe that I could carry in the Jeep and throw away without carrying about and these do technically fit the bill.
They fit narrow and they fall on the small side of size. They look really small on the foot because they are more contoured to the shape of the foot more so than a standard, structured boot. I have found that I wear them way more than I thought I would.
I love trail running and these definitely fit the bill.
After two months of regular use, they are great for exercise. However, the fact that they are waterproof makes them uncomfortably hot, at least for me. Admittedly, almost any shoe I wear causes this problem. So it's not that bad if you ask me. However, I live in the desert and having waterproof shoes, even with evaporating technology, doesn't seem right. Then again, the design of the waterproof event system may be the actual reason wy they are good for running in. It might add some extra side strength.
Word of advice: Try not to put them through the wash & dryer. The glue on the inside of the shoe, below the shoe insert, where the arch of the foot is, will pop up about a 1/4 of an inch. However, the shoe inserts make this a non-issue, for now.
One other thing- whatever "coating" Teva used to make these water resistant, eventually wore off. You are going to want to buy some waterproofing spray for these if you plan on walking in snow/rain with these.
