Great Hiking Shoe with a few Minor Quibbles

4

I got a pair of these last year to replace my Merrell MOAB 2's for backpacking, but they were so comfy I quickly started using them on all my hikes. The extra support at minimal extra weight has been great. They do have a moderately narrow design in the midfoot that widens at the forefoot, but that matches my foot shape (Eddie B always seems like it was tailored for me). I have used them everywhere from tidal pools to alpine trails to rugged desert, and they conquered all with ease, providing and excellent mix of protection and superb traction while maintaining enough flexibility and gound feel for me to be happy. They have also always kept my feet dry in any water that wasn't deep enough to go over the tops, including the aforementioned tidal pools and many a stream.So why only 4 stars? I have two main nitpicks that prevent a perfect score:1) They only use the standard 5k/5k WeatherEdge membrane for waterproofing. While that's enough to keep me dry, it's not as breathable as I would like for my aggressively sweaty feet. I wish there was a version with 20k/20k WeatherEdge pro, or even better, WeatherEdge flux (eVent). I know the Cairns have that, but I need the mesh design to let enough air move. I would pay considerably more for this option.2) As another John mentioned, after a while the mesh on the inner forefoot articulation points between the pleather panels rubs on itself enough to wear through. I think a slight redesign of the forward articulation points could prevent this. Having said that, I didn't notice this until I'd worn them to the point where the outsole was pretty worn down as well, so I'd say the uppers and outsole will wear out at the same rate, which is much nicer then Merrell, where the Vibram outsole is in an entirely different league.Overall an excellent value for a great, versatile hiking/backpacking shoe. I'll use mine until the tread is completely dead, then probably get another pair.

Feet Stay Dry and Comfortable

No breaking in required. I wore these for the first time on a 5 mile hike through creeks and mud. My feet were comfortable and dry the whole time.

Comfortable and solid support

No breakin necessary. Shoes are comfortable. Seem to fit about 1/2 size small to my regular non-EB footwear.
