Broke them in on a 51k trek through wet trail, mud, and snow. They hold up against water very well, have great grip, are extremely comfortable and because of the wide forefoot, allow you to step toe / heel in comfort and test the ground before planting all of your weight. The only thing that I was disappointed with was just *how* little ankle support there is. I thought there would be more but really, the top of the boot is pretty soft and I think they should have made'em a bit stiffer. These boots wick moisture away quickly and dry very fast. Overall, a very good purchase and I'm sure these boots will hold up great over the long run.
