Best shoe I have worn

I love the synthesis mid. They are by far the most comfortable shoe I've worn hill walking in Scotland. Very lightweight and the soft uppers give your toes some leeway when going downhill. Bin the heavy leather boots and try a pair of these. Excellent. On my 2nd pair and I will be buying them as long as they are available.

I would avoid this product

Shoe looks and feels great.
Quality is terrible. Right shoe leaked first time walking in wet grass. Laces also snapped within 4 weeks. Heal area started to wear after 3 weeks.
Very dissatisfied with after sale service from this web site. Have spoken to other walkers and general opinion is to stay away from LA sportiva walking shoes as they fall apart.

Advantages
Lightweight
Stabilizes the foot
Good grip
Comfortable
Disadvantages
Not robust
Not waterproof
