Thank you for your feedback.
Very comfortable went on a hike first day wearing them and work we'll only downfall is the whole boot is not waterproof
Kind of like a thick, well padded sneaker; these Teva's are good for shorter day hikes and trials.
Comfortable and has been able to wear them all day without needing breaking in.

    EDIT: I wanted to follow up on these shoes. I put off returning them thinking that I would end up losing out too much money in the long run. I found a pair of Keen waterproof hiking boots for $11 at an REI garage sale, so I figured I would just send the Tevas back to see what happened. They took the shoes back without problem and are sending me a $120 Gannet Mid waterproof hiking boot. They issued the replacement and shipped it out within 2 days of receiving the boots! I can't give the boots themselves a high rating because they failed so quickly with such light use (I wore them everyday, but on a bike commuting to work. Nothing like trail hiking), but Teva as a company receives high marks. Their customer service was quick, efficient, and very generous. Thanks!

    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.

    As others have stated, it runs very narrow - Definitely recommend going up a size. I generally wear 9.5-10 in Teva's - I had to go to an 11 for a comfortable fit. Otherwise it's a great shoe, especially at this price (~33 USD).

    This is a good shoe but is SIGNIFICANTLY SHORT for its sizing. It is ONE FULL SIZE too short. Width is fairly accurate to slightly narrow but don't just go 1/2 size larger like with most TEVA shoes. This one is a full size short and I'm not exaggerating! If you do this you will have a good fit unless you have a fairly wide foot. This shoe is best for average to narrow feet.
    Thanks

    These are decent (for the price) for general use in an area where there is a high degree of rainfall or moisture. I wear them while walking the dog on trails, going camping, shooting in the mountains, etc. I carry these in the back of the Jeep just in case I need waterproof shoes on the fly.

    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.

    Perhaps a great description of these shoes is they are running shoes that have ankle support. Honestly, they are about the same weight as your typical running shoes. I was surprised on my first run to discover the foam is almost kind of springy. After two weeks of running 3 - 4 times a week my feet started to really bother me. I had developed soar spots and have taken the last week off in order to instal new shoe inserts and heal.

    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.

    At first, I didn't like these boots because they were narrow and didn't feel good to walk in for my job. However, after forcing myself to wear them for a week straight, they broke in nicely. I did have to buy some gel insoles because the ones included had no arch support. After adding the new insoles, I think they're good.

    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.
