A bit clumpier than most, mainly courtesy of a very padded upper, but they benefit from a very well-balanced midsole that does a good job of evening out the rough patches without feeling too stiff, and the eVENT waterproof membrane is excellent, keeping water out yet breathing well. They offer good protection for the toe and heel, and the aggressive lugs on the Vibram outsole seem perfectly suited to typical soft UK going. Generally a nice shoe well-suited to walking.
