All to often, I buy something, wear it out and buy a "new and improved" or updated version of that same thing, only to be sorely dissapointed. Not this time! I had my first pair of Techamphibians for about two years and lived in those darn things. Took them everywhere and did *almost* everything in them. When they finally died, I worried that I would never be able to replace them.
I ordered the new ones and after one day, I felt like I was back in the same shoes, again. These are sturdy, durable, and comfortable shoes. Off-road, under water and on pavement, they give solid traction and suppport, breath very well, and dry out quickly. I am particularly pleased with the wet weather traction of this shoe, too.
If you don't own a pair of these, you're missing out.
