These are sick.
They're are ridiculous. It's as though God wanted a pair of kicks that could tear Mount Olympus a new one in the morning, and spend evenings chasing tail at the local DndB scene with a bottle of tequila and a mullet.

Rigidity.
For a pair of shoes these bad boys are STIFF. They feel so aggressive that every step is literally tearing apart the bedrock beneath you, sending shock waves of alpha to every single being in a 100km radius. When the alpine fault goes it won't be one of the tectonic plates succumbing to massive amounts of pressure, it'll be me jumping up and down on the summit of some dope ass peak and shattering the earth.

Waterproofing.
River crossings your thing? Boy oh boy these have got you covered. Being a shoe unless you're crossing a stream as big as a bathroom tap water will come over the top, accept it and move on. That being said when they say water proof, damn do they mean it with some bloody good resistance to puddles.

Drainage.
The drainage on these is even better than your internals after a couple to many shots of gin, expelling liquid with greater efficiency than your stomach. Because the lacing comes down so low you get that sweet flow out the bottom of the tongue every time you bend your toes to walk, getting a fair amount out just in time for you to jump back into the river. Now you can sit back and laugh at all those peasants with boots and raisin feet at the end of the day.

Comfort.
I'll have to update on durability later, because I believe you have to thrash gear to pieces before you can fully understand it. That being said it's one solid mf shoe so far. Comfy as hell too. Like walking on a sheet of GIB board that cups your feet and supports you, kinda like a counselor. Bit on the firmer side but you know he's doing his best and you respect that. These kicks were crafted in the fires of Mount Doom and you sure as hell wont forget it.

The lacing and design on the shoes are superb. Ever been hogtied before? Well now you can try it without the associated kink shamming, because man you can dial that tension right in with the three different zones the climbing laces offer. And unlike Jack in the Titanic, these will never let you go Rose.

I did have a lil issue with heel slippage due to my insanely skinny Achilles, but it turned out to be no biggie with some dope ass thick merino socks. Where there's a will there's a way.

In short, these will get you covered in members of the opposite sex, the same sex, and every gear fiend within a 20 km radius.

Try them, buy them and get rad.

Malcolm.
