Comment: Everything else
A very concise, detailed report. This is informational and well thought out.
It answered quite a few questions I had about the shoes when I first saw
them, and even makes me want to go out and buy a pair. Nice report indeed.

Edit: Because the readers idea of a day hike may be a 25 mile jaunt, how
about mentioning a rough estimate of total miles you've worn the shoes.
Something like " I've probably worn these shoes roughly 55 miles in total.

any durability problems, then you can't really say you are concerned about
them. If, however, you have noticed problems then document those here and
justify why you're concerned about durability.

Thanks for the edits, and pointing out some silly mistakes (of course readers would want to know the distances of the day hikes, especially since these were so short)!
I made all the changes, uploaded the corrected version and deleted the file from the OR folder.
