They have a pretty clunky sole, but that contributes to them being comfortable. I find that they are excellent in the cold and acceptable in the heat. I only wear them about 25% of the time, though as the weight is a detracting factor for me.
Thanks for the review. I bought my last pair of Danners a couple years ago and won't buy any more.
