Best Summer Shoes Ever Created!
I'm in love with these shoes!! I've been wearing them all summer long. The mesh sides provide phenomenal airflow - there's no way your feet will sweat in these. Be aware - the mesh sides also mean that fine dust/sand particles can find there way into your shoe - it's not uncomfortable, but you'll be surprised to take them off and find your socks are dirty. The water drainage makes the shoes super easy to clean - the inserts are easily removed, and you can wash the shoe with a hose, in the sink or in the lake. I've worn these shoes in all sorts of hiking conditions and they are excellent hikers. Permanently replaced my Merrills and Keen's for summer hiking. Excellent traction and durability. After three months of heavy backcountry use they still look brand new. The colorway is sharp and it's easy to transition these hikers to a night out in the city.

My favorite shoes
I am a minimalistic all year world traveler and my philosophy is that all my belonging must fit in my carry on. I travel all year long through the five continents and I am always looking for comfortable shoes as I like to walk cities and nature. Purchased this shoes two months ago and I must say that they have become my favorite shoes ever owned. They are so light, versatile, small and good looking. I have used from to climb Machu Picchu to casual dinners and after two months of heavy usage are still intact. They are also very well ventilated which make them ideal for tropical weather. When confronted to rain they dry quickly. A 10 out of 10 purchase.

Great light hiking shoe but runs a bit small
These are really great hiking shoes, they are very lightweight and the grip on them is phenomenal. I have had other hiking shoes and even though they are very grippy, they become uncomfortable for me for longer hikes since they are so heavy and hot. These on the other hand is light and breathes pretty good because of the mesh on the fronts and the sides. I also like the 1mm drop design making this a minimalist shoe, my first time having a 1mm drop shoe and I love it. I feel like I can walk longer without getting tired with this drop and is also very well balanced. This makes you less prone to ankle injuries which is a plus. The only thing I did not like with these shoes is that it ran a bit small for me. I usually wear 9.5 but I felt like the shoe was not wide enough for my feet, front to back fit good but if you have a wider foot I would definitely recommend getting half a size up. The other thing I noticed it due to the mesh design you might get dust on your socks after hikes, this might not happen if you get the TR1 Junction which does not have mesh on the sides. Overall HIGHLY recommend these shoes for hiking, wet footing, or just for casual wear. It really does all the above well!

I never have to look for another shoe
My husband is really hard on shoes. He works on boats, so he is on his feet all the time and in/out of the water a lot. These have held up so well. He has had them for over a year. Usually, he crushes shoes in a year and has to buy new ones, but these are still hanging on with only medium wear. The soles look new, its around the fabric. He never unlaces his shoes, so he wiggles it in, and that is stretched. That's it. He also wears them hiking and as his casual shoes, so he pretty much lives in these. And they don't smell. Ever. Its incredible. His shoes usually have to stay outside. This is the shoe he will always get from now on. The perfect shoe in my opinion.

I used these shoes everyday on a 6.5 week research collecting trip in Vanuatu. They were awesome!! They were very grippy while I was climbing up rocks on the river, and dried super fast! My only concern is at the end of my trip they were starting to come apart, a little on the soles, but also some of the mesh part was getting holes. They were super comfortable and actually quite stylish. I would recommend.

Fits well quality construction, light weight, great summer spring fall hiker/trail running/ walking. A lot of mesh, breaths well, a little hard to get on/off, but great heal cupping. I have a wider toe box, fits well, sizes run as expected. I’ll probable get another pair. Nice styling, simple & utilitarian

very comfortable and capable light trail running shoe but the G rubber sole on this shoe really disappoints. It was marketed as a super grippy shoe on wet surfaces and I would say its not at all. Grip is about 6/10 as compared with Five Ten Stealth Rubber. I have both and still the Stealth rubber is a gold standard. Unfortunate, I did not have a chance to try their Brewer water shoes with the GSS rubber which stands for Super Sticky. Will try it if I have a chance

I bought for a Canyoneering trip. The grip on the rocks was amazing. The water drains out of the shoes just like advertised. But there was one problem the glue that holds the bottom part of the shoe on field in parts of the shoe begin to rip off. I was unable to send the shoe back because I was just too busy. If I buy again I will buy a Canyoneering version. Other than that it’s a great shoe and I will use it for my raft trips.
