Rated4out of5byWolf NavarrofromSuper Impressed!!!!!I love these shoes! I was leaving for a hike on King's Peak...above the Lost Coast...these shoes were reccomended to me by a friend and I oredered them up! They are by far the ugliest shoes I have ever owned but I'm willing to overlook that for the amazing comfort they provided right out of the box to the trail!! NO BREAK IN TIME NEEDED!!! I was amazed at the comfort and weight of these shoes?! They felt like I was walking on air...Now, I've suffered a duble compound fracture of my right tibia and fibula years ago and I am very lucky to be able to hike long distances...these shoes have made me able to cover 10-20 miles a day with no pain or problems at all...Brooks...I salute you!!!

Rated5out of5byFlyin BrianfromI pretty much forget I am wearing them :I made a bad choice on some trail/hiking shoes so I returned them to the local REI. I found a very knowledgeable salesperson to help me find something comfortable and after trying 4 different brands, this was the fit I was looking for. These have excellent support in the heel, so they don't let my ankle fold like what was happening with my old shoes. These also have a wide foot pocket, which is what I needed so my toes do not feel compressed. The day I bought them we went on an 8 mile hike with a 1200 elevation climb/descent... it was an excellent way to test them and they were so comfortable I didn't even think about the fact that I was wearing new shoes. I'm thinking about buying a spare pair.
