I've been wearing these a lot this winter, they've broken in well and are really comfortable. They are a little heavier than some casual shoes but are still pretty lightweight. I like wearing them a lot and they get more comfortable with each passing week. Well designed! The only problem was that they did not come in the Cocoa color that's shown- more of a Sand color. I wanted the Cocoa and from what I understand it's not available. I NikWaxed these to darken them and then ended up putting Mink Oil on them. They are about the right color now, but I would have preferred Eddie Bauer to get me the nice brushed texture Cocoa that they show. That would keep me from buying a second pair, but they are still great hiking/ rugged casual shoes.This would be 5 stars with the right color.
