Berghaus Men's Prognosis 11 GTX
This shoe is a real survivor
We bought these shoes reluctantly for an 11 yo boy who wears shoes out all the time; it seemed a lot of money to spend on a growing boy. However the money was well spent, the shoes survived sledging and digging in the snow, camping and rock scrambling in the desert, about 1000 miles of mountain biking and more. The inner goretex finally split this weekend on his 12th birthday after 15 miles off road biking in Wales through puddles and rocks. We looked after them well and never left mud to dry on them, and they have been the first shoe to survive him. We might keep the shoes anyway just for sentimental reasons....

Good all-round activity shoe
These shoes took everything in their stride on a recent high-level wet walk. At this price they're a good buy, any cheaper and they'd be a great buy.

Decent waterproof shoe
It's a decent goretex shoe, the waterproofing hasn't let me down. I find it wore through at the back of my ankle though.

Comfortable and reliable
I needed a pair of reliable shoes, light weight, still tough. I will soon use them in Burma/Myanmar for trekking. After trying them some very rainy days here in Sweden I feel confident they will perform well.

Lightweight and comfy but didn't last.
This is a very lightweight and very comfortable shoe which I was very happy with initially, using them both for my walk to work and for longer recreational walks including the Brecon Beacons. However, after 10 months of use the shoe has come apart in several places, and it now leaks. My partner has had a similar experience with the female version of this shoe, so I feel that you pay a little in build quality what you gain in low weight.

low cut multi acitivity shoe .
im sorry to have to say this but i found these shoes hard to wear in , and for a quite a while they were uncomfortable , they were recomended in store because of the task i was carryin out . i finished the last 15 mile of our walk squelshing and fighting off blisters , they were no where near as durably water proof or breathable as described .
just thought you ought to know .
