"Well, I was rather pleased to see at the end of the day that neither my feet nor Sue's feet were pruny. Despite the reinforcing all around the shoes, not to mention the very hot weather in the Australian summer, they must have breathed fairly well."
I just wore a pair of these yesterday. Got up to 80 degrees.
There is no mesh and these shoes do not breath. Not like a Innov-8 Terroc 330 for example. Even the nylon outer fabric is lined inside. Hot.
That Vibram sole has zero traction (when new at least) on tile floors, be careful.
These will take too long to dry out after getting wet for me to consider them for trail use. These will be for work, in town.
Got mine for less than $70 shipped. Not the worst money I've spent on shoes. That nod goes to Brooks.
Just ordered something else for trail use.
