The Habitat Basin is a super unique and versatile shoe.
This is a team choice for all the travel that they do.
Cool style - fashioned after a traditional, old school climber/trail runner.
This one is part of Habitat's Frost Protection line.
Habitat's Frost Protection line are classic skate shoes modified to endure cold, wet, snowy, and slushy climates, while still maintaining the basic requirements of a skate shoe.
Each Frost Protection style has a gusseted tongue, wool lining, and water resistant suede to keep your feet warm and dry without having to wear some clunky hiking boot.
Keep your feet dry and your style in tact.
Comfy and cool

These shoes by no mean water proof, but they do resist water and it will bead up and fall off. This doesn't mean you can stick you foot in the creek and expect to stay dry, but they hold up well in the rain and when walking through dewy fields! I just wish they had a bit more padding...
would the non-frost protection one be waterproof/very quick dry? Im going rafting and hiking, so i need a shoe that has grip and support, but wont stay soggy.

Moderately comfortable upon first trying them on. Took about 2 weeks to get them to stretch out and really fit my feet comfortably. I'm usually between a 10.5 and an 11 depending on the fit of the shoe. Got a 10.5 in these.
They seemed to be holding up well but after about 2 months of fairly moderate use, I found myself walking home from the mechanics after dropping the car off. It was only a 5 mile walk through town and when I reached home, the seam on the side of the heel had blown out. Other than that disappointment, it's a decent casual shoe

I don't know if I'd put these in mountain living. I was really excited to get the cement shoes, but they were both too long and too thin. I figured the shoes would break in, but after wearing them for less than three weeks, one of the shoelace eyes was ripping out and worse, the right shoe itself was ripping at my little toe. I only wore them in the city, never hiked in them or caused any undue wear, but they wore out within a couple weeks. Get what you pay for, I guess. I'm returning them. If you have long, skinny feet, maybe they're better.

These are a pretty cool shoe especially for the sale price. They have a thin, canvas body which makes them feel like Sanuks or slippers. Don't be fooled by the video below, the cement and chocolate black colors do not have the frost protection feature, and are not water proof. The main difference is that the tongue is not gusseted on these colors. However, they are still very stylish and comfortable.
