Haven't had a chance to try this out for hiking, but I like the overall feel and look of the shoe. It is roomier than the Primus Trail but I'm hoping that the higher material at the ankle will result in fewer pebbles in the shoe while hiking.
Awesome shoe, very versatile. Keeps sand, snow, and water out. Had difficulty hiking up the face of steep snowy dunes, as expected but had no problem hiking up the sides where the trail was. Put my foot through ice on a pond and my foot still stayed dry. I also work out in these at the gym. Excellent durability so far.
Love the color and design! 2nd pair of Vivobaeefoot's and I am always impressed by the quality of the material.
I am typically a size 7.5 US and recommend a size 7 when ordering this shoe.
