    Me too. Hard to find a lighter shoe with decent/real support.

    I bought a pair of merrell Trail Gloves for a lighter pair and they are good so far. They also seem like they will be great for kayaking.

    I haven't logged a ton of miles with my Obozs. But I have been happy with them so far...

    o3jeff,
    Seems like in the real outdoors they'll lose a little stability once you step/land on something not exactly dead center...y/n? Look like a paddling/boating/kayaking shoe.....

    I think I have timberlands, that I've been using for paragliding as well for ankle protection

    I had a pair of asolos a few years back that I loved. I put quite a few miles on them, even took them to the shoe repair shop when they finally blew out and got another year or so out of em. They seem awfully pricey today, and I dont really like the looks of how eyes (where the lace gets strung) are hinged, kinda looks like it could be a chink in the chain. I do like the way the merrells fit and they're not quite as pricey. I dont picture myself buying anything but a waterproof boot for hiking. Thanks for the input.

    i have a pair of Salomon Quest 4D GTX and am very happy with them. i don't do ice climbing so these work for me fine. awesome support.
