Questions & Reviews
They keep out just about everything from plant stickers, mud, to even the worst of the dusty terrains, nothing gets past that gaiter/sock cuff and it's surprisingly breathable despite what one might expect its coverage. No sweat from me, and no dust/rocks! Tread is pretty durable too for such a lightweight shoe. It's definitely a narrow shoe but adding your own insoles will help make room or confirm no room for every individual's foot in these shoes.
On Rainier they also did great. We didn't make the summit as two ladders were down near the top. But we did put crampons on for the lower snow field and upper glacier and crossed one ladder. We got a few dirty looks from guides who seemed to judge us for not having true mountaineering boots on. (Two different guides said, "going light I see" while looking at our shoes. I think the soft soles would have been scary spanning ladder rungs with no board down the middle, so maybe their dirty looks were warranted. Unfortunately I didn't get to test that though since the only ladder we could cross had a board down it.) We even bombed down the 2k ft snow field below camp Muir in slushy afternoon snow and my feet remained totally dry. The pointy toe also kept the crampons in place all day.
Seems like a great shoe for scree or snow. And it was grippy while scrambling. It does feel narrow and I had to size up from a US 11 to 12. But they never felt overly tight out on the trail. And the laces are easy to adjust under the gaiter if you do want some extra room.
