Really comfy on first fit. Very light and flexible. Due to the softshell, it does not feel weird while walking unlike other big brands where the boot is too rigid on top of foot. Great grip, good warmth just standing around at -10 and very comfortable to walk in. I have tried 6-7 different pairs of merrell, columbia, north face and this was the only one I could really say that it was love at first fit. And way cheaper. Everyone knows Baffin makes great ''HUGE'' winter boots, but looks like they make a great sport/snowshoeing boot too. Thanks Baffin!
