Looks may not be everything but I am not spending this sort of money unless I really like the look. They are so cool...love these boots. Look great with my chinos walking in Cambridge! People comment on them, even the Big Issue seller bless him. I usually have Salomon gtx boots and these are a bit heavier and a bit bigger fit. Instantly comfortable. Not done any serious walking yet, but these boots make me want to go walking!( only had a week). I will wear these for general use as well as walking in spring and summer.
Recently purchased a pair of these. So far, so good. Laces running to the toes are great, especially since I do have rather oddly shaped feet, so this addition truly does provide a comfortable fit. The sole absorbs well, and toe edge feels tough and rigid for the occasional scramble. Upper boot also provides plenty of support to the ankles - promising for any punishing descent. I'm still breaking them in at the moment, but they'll soon be put to test in Death Valley and Yosemite.
