Haven't worn these long; about one week; so will post a followup later. Shoes look great, they blend a skate style shoe with a light hiker style making for a unique look. Shoes are comfortable and fairly light. Stiffer than I thought so will take a little breaking in. Traction is good, these could be worn for street, around town use but would also work as a short hike or scrambling shoe. Stiff enough for toe placement on objects while scrambling, probably due to the design background of Parkor precision work. So far a good shoe.
