Nice & lightweight, but small
I got this shoe a week ago, it looks good and is real lightweight. The construction is good and the sole of the shoe is stiffer than what you would find on a tennis shoe. I prefer a stiffer sole for what I wear my shoes for and this shoe did not disappoint. The tread pattern is pretty shallow so it shouldn't hold onto mud but it may wear out quickly. The rubber on the sole is pretty hard so the soles may not wear out quickly. Only time will tell. I have to order wide shoes to fit my feet. I ordered this shoe in 11 wide and it barely fits my foot with no room to spare. I have/have had several other Hi-Tec brand shoes and boots and did not have any fitment issues. For this particular shoe I would order a half size larger and if you need really wide shoes I think you are out of luck. The waterproof interior of the shoe is sewn well and should keep the water out, however it does not breathe as well as some other goretex lined shoes that I have. My feet got sweaty in a hurry.
