I love these shoes and actually bought several of the same pair as I knew they would discontinue this great green color for women in favor of girlie colors. These shoes are lightweight, waterproof / resistant and the tread is awesome and great for running or hiking up and down hills. I am extremely hard on my shoes and destroy most shoes rather quickly, however these shoes seem virtually indestructible. The solid top shoe is great too for keeping debris out when hiking. Absolutely love these shoes!!
