If anyone wants a fail safe never to let you down shoe go no further than this one. It has just enough padding in the sole to cushion your ball and heel but not to much that you cannot feel the terrain you are walking on. I use these shoes on new roof construction and they have the best grip I have ever used. The toe guard has pulled away a little but a 2 dollar squirt of superglue has stopped it for the last 11 months. I have worn these in 50 degree heat on roof construction and keept them wet for days. These are the best shoes by far on the market today. They fit better than the Chameleon 3 stretch available in the US. I will buy another pair once I can wear them out.
