Terrific shoe, but w/one flaw.
I bought these, n the regular boot version, a few months ago. I haven't had the chance to do any real hiking in either pairs, but don't foresee any problems w/that. I've been wearing the low-tops almost every day. Overall, I love them. They're sturdy, comfy, n have great soles, inside n out. As other reviewers have noted, there is one problem, though: Insufficient ventilation. OMG, these things run hot :-/ No exertion is needed to have sweaty feet. I actually developed fungal infections on both of my feet (skin), recently. It was from the excessive sweat. That's never happened, before. I wear old-school cotton crews, but will soon be changing to a wool-blend. These shoes are why. Hoping it helps. I still recommend the shoes, but PLEASE increase the ventilation, Oboz. Pretty Please?? Thank You.
