Bought these shoes to wear in the pacific nw mountains mostly for walking around in the city and trails. They were very comfortable and warm...very much a tennis shoe feel which is what I was looking for. Granted the top part didn't close all the way when laced up but I do have bigger calves. I wore them with skinny jeans and they were great. My feet stayed warm all the time. I didn't take them out on as many trails as I would have liked and the conditions were fairly dry when I did so can't say much about the traction in snow/wet conditions but they are comfortable and cute and I like 'em.
