No Love at First Sight, but -
Note to self: vegan shoes are stiff and hard in the beginning! All's not lost though, as the shoes slowly soften and mould to your feet as you take them further with each step.
The Hiker shoes look good and they are like the little brother of the Tracker; not as tall and a little bit lighter.
I've grown quite accustomed to the Firm Ground sole which works really well in Finland, where I mostly walk on very varied surfaces. It also works nicely in the snow!
The Hikers do run a bit hot, but I'm excited to put them into good use once the weather gets wet and colder. I have no problems trusting these to keep my feet healthy in those conditions, while also offering a good feeling to the ground.
