Wore these one day street wear and one hike so far. Comfortable from moment 1. Ideal build and weight for day hikes. Traction on the trail was great and little mud build-up. High quality leather is wearing in beautifully. I always replace the stock insoles on boots with Superfeet, and I replaced the laces on these with a lower-key color that happened to match the soft leather tongue and shin lining--which is another comfort and looks feature. A perfect boot for street wear and day hikes!
