Broad and roomy with excellent padding that makes it feel great from the box. Leather upper moulds quickly to the foot providing great comfort and the soft shell trim looks and feels good, as well as adding a bit more weather resistance. A Gore-Tex XCR lining keeps water out, but they are quite low-cut and therefore let water in from the top. Midsole is suitable for most going, but the tread pattern is better suited to rock or firmer surfaces.
