Rated 2 out of 5 by Shadesjm Ultimate Fail
Let me start by saying I loved this boot. The style, feel, fit, breathability, tread design, LOVED IT! I purchased these boots in anticipation of a 5 day Grand Canyon hiking trip. I wore them on five very moderate hikes to break them in. I was amazed with this boot. On my first day in the Canyon however, this boot FAILED in the most epic way imaginable. The tread, starting on the heal and working its way forward, began to de-glove. The outer sole is held on to the cushion with what looks to be elmer's wood glue, and day by day I lost pieces until on the final day I was hiking on the greyish cushion. I was upset, but figured bad pair. When I returned swapped them. Same problem on moderate/aggressive hikes. I contacted Oboz directly and was informed that I shouldn't have taken them into the Canyon and was basically my fault for putting the show through such a test... My wife has a pair and wears them as a winter waterproof/daytrip snowshoeing and loves them maybe a month of wear total. No issues. I wear Keen Targhee's and have had no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zap26 The best hiking shoes
I wanted hiking shoes (not boots which I already have). My boots are from New Balance and after hiking for a few hours my feet bother me. After trying on many different brands of hiking shoes I decided to go with these. The first day out hiking we climbed 4 peaks in Acadia National Park. After about 7 hours of hiking my feet were as comfortable as when I put them on. I am very pleased with these shoes and if they make them in a boot I would get them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OlderDude These are really good shoes.
This is the second pair of this particular shoe that I have owned in the past four years; I have also tried a similar Merrell product. This shoe is comfortable from the first time you put it on, is durable and seems to be the right weight.
