- First walk of about 10 miles across mixed terrain of tarmac through rock scree - no blisters, very comfortable. Sole shank is firm without being too stiff. Toes feel well protected by reinforced front. Vibram sole grips well, but still allows you to feel the texture under your feet. Cannot comment on water resistance as it was a nice sunny day.... Shoe also accepted a set of stiff orthotic inserts with no discomfort.
- Felt like I had to tighten the shoe several times during the day to stop it "floating". Lace and tongue design make it quite hard to get good grip on laces along the length of the shoe, which means tightening relies on a good hard pull from the top lace hole which may have an impact on longevity - only time will tell. Once set correctly the shoe felt fine.
