Nice Lightweight Waterproof Hiking Shoe as expected, but some disappointment for price point
All the things I normally love about On shoes are present here. It delivers on everything promised...but nothing more. They are the most lightweight hiking shoes I've owned, and they are waterproof, which not a lot of lightweight shoes are (usually just water resistant). The outer sole they have developed for hiking is shock absorbent and bouncy--which based on the soles of their other shoes, I expected to be great--while still grippy on tricky terrain. The design, like other On shoes is pretty cool and minimal. Where I am disappointed is the insole. It is absolute crap/barely existent. It's pretty minimal in their other shoes, but those are for running and also half the price. For hiking, a sturdy insole with arch support is so important, especially for distance. These provide no more support than a thin sock. I immediately had to replace them after the first walk, which added a considerable expense to a pretty expensive shoe. Nonetheless I'd still recommend these, specifically for the light weight, but expect to spend extra on insoles, if you really want to use these for hiking.
