Xero Shoes Xcursion

Product Review (submitted on 13 October 2019):
Stunning hiking boot. Right out of the box the quality is obvious. Beautifully crafted, light, and with sizeing that's much closer to standard shoe sizes than their predecessor (and non-waterproof) Daylight Hikers.

I tested their waterproofing in about an hour and a half of torrential rain today. Walked in completely waterlogged ground sinking an inch or so into water with every step; through soaking wet fields of long grass; searched for, and walked into, every puddle I could find; had rain streaming of my hiking trousers onto the top of them the whole time, and the insides were bone dry when I took them off. Couldn't be more impressed.

Granted, it was lowland walking rather than proper mountains, but they took everything I could throw at them today and came out flying. Fantastic first impressions.
