A soft upper with lots of padding made them a little hot and sweaty. Also the low ankle cuff dug in a bit at times. Performed well with good shock absorption and a Vibram sole that gave sufficient grip on all surfaces. The flexible sole unit worked well on low-level terrain, but the padding made them feel quite heavy.
