Cindy--check out the soles of the Saucony shoes on a wet surface. They are probably fine but I bought some several years ago because Consumer Reports said they were great shoes only to find they were dangerously slippery when things were wet.

While I did not find the New Balance 800 series I did come away with an awesome deal on a pair of Saucony road runners, like I need another pair of running shoes! :roll: I did Echo Canyon this a.m. and was checking out everyone's feet, strange I know but I noticed alot of people in the New Balance. Think I'll keep looking.
The Gore-tex boots aren't the same as waterproof. The water will of course come in over the top; but I find they breathe just fine, and after walking through water my feet dry out (sort of) pretty quickly.Daryl wrote:I’m not a fan of water proof shoes/boots for hiking, because 9 times out of 10 the water I’m wearing them in is above the top of the shoe/boot and they fill up. Unfortunately they are two way water proof (no water in, no water out). Also my feet sweat too much in them and my wife won’t let me in the house!
