Awesome "casual shoe". It is a very nice casual shoe, very comfortable and a nice looking shoe. Have worn with shorts, hiking (on accident), and slacks and a button up shirt. As stated, perfect for casual wear, walking, hiking, whatever. While on a hiking trip in Colorado had to pull off the road to let cars pass and take a bathroom break. The closest pull-off happened to have a lake and several hiking trails, so ended up climbing almost to the very top of a mountain in these shoes. We definitely blazed our own trail, climbing through feet of snow at times, or gravel/rock walls at other times. Shoes do not say they are waterproof, but my feet never got cold or wet even walking thru deep snow for long periods of time. Served perfectly for the entire climb, blown away by their durability and traction on the trail, especially since they are marketed and I bought them as a casual shoe.
