I will 2nd this recommendation. Excellent vibram sole with good ventilation, so your socks don't get all sweaty. Probably not great for winter/snow, more of a 3-season boot, but for everything else this boot is awesome, with good traction in wet or dry dirt, and on rock also. I keep meaning to get a 2nd pair, in case they ever discontinue them. I wear mine a lot. Very comfy. Wife says I look like a dork in them, but I don't care.
