    The TENNI-HIKERS, that's what I call them anyway because that's how they feel on my feet! My feet are very picky do to Cellulitis. They are very comfortable and do just as they advertise! It does take a few more SECONDS to tie and/or tighten them up due to the lacing system but they sure stay tight instead of loosening up after just a little while, for me anyway. I tie a half-knot in the very first loop eye in the middle, at the beginning of the laces, so the ends of the strings don't become uneven after tieing them for a period of time. The lacing system is a give and take kind of thing. I noticed and figured that before I purchased them though, not complaining. The AIR SECTION in the sole is awesome and sure helps me with my drop foot and I don't make as much noise when I walk now. The AWESOME SUPPORT IN THE ANKLE helps with that also!! AWESOME TRACKTION also! FIVE STARS all the way! *****

    These are very comfortable boots. Fit true to size, great traction, light weight and water resistant. In fact I submerged my feet in puddle for a few seconds and stayed dry. Great boots and would purchase again!
