Great Shoes, Bad Laces

Great Shoes, good quality and confortable design for use all day outdoors.

Laces rub over sharp bend on other fabric and wears through laces very quickly (~1-2 months) replaced with some more durable laces and been ok for last 2 months now and looking ok but something to be aware of!

Excellent shoes

I bought these for a trip to the Dolomites and I'm very pleased I did. The shoes are very light so great for long hikes. The soles provide excellent grip. They work well on scree, muddy rock and excellent even traversing and descending on soaking rock doing via ferrata.
The laces secure the shoe very comfortably. I'd be tempted to buy another pair to keep in the cupboard until this pair finally give in they are so good :)
They are not remotely waterproof however.
