I've been wandering around in these shoes for the past couple months and have been very pleased with them. The sole very stiff and gives very good protection on sharp rocks during the approach. The rubber is obviously very sticky, and I like having two pull tabs on the back of each shoe to put them on and hang them from a harness or pack. They do run large so you might want to consider downsizing a half size or so.
I picked these up to use as light hikers on rocky trails, and after a few hikes I like them a lot. They fit true to size, and they are lightweight. The rubber is super sticky. The first thing you notice is how stiff the soles are-great for rocky terrain and scrambling but I personally wouldn't buy these just as a casual shoe.
FYI, I wear a size 11 in 5.10 Guide Tennies and Impacts (and in pretty much every other shoe I've had since my feet stopped growing), yet I wear 10.5 Aescent.
To answer rootless's question, these are stiffer than the Tennies, with a wider, more rigid "footprint."
ll and really comfortable! love them!
