Hudson River Valley, NY
These shoes are incredibly comfortable and stylish. As I get older I'm realizing I need comfort, but I DON'T want to sacrifice style. These shoes fit the bill. I bought them specifically for hiking but have also worn them just out and about and I think they are appropriate for most uses in a casual setting. I can't wait to take them on their first hike, though. I have a feeling I will complete the hike for the first time without aching feet. These provide good support and the toe box is wide enough that I have some wiggle room and don't feel cramped. I love the way they fit closely around the ankle, too, which should prevent foreign objects like rocks and dirt from getting into my shoes while hiking. I'd never heard of this brand before researching for good hiking shoes and I'm glad I found it. I think it will be my new go-to brand for comfortable casual shoes.
