Hi. These are a relatively new shoe that's been mentioned a few times before. I took this as my alternate/evening shoes on my Tour du Mont Blanc 100-mile hiking trip. I changed into these in the evening after leaving my muddy hikers behind. I wore them on the flight and on days we were not hiking. They were great. Because they are merino wool I didn't need socks. They are also very light weight. They have great support, were warm on cool nights and did well when it was warm out. They were nice and neutral and went fine with my sporty dress, at least in the sporty town of Chamonix. I'd definitely recommend them for travel.
One thing to note is that they are not actual running shoes despite their name. I got the black/white pepper color (we have a white dog and black dog and so this covers all the dog hair combos now that we are back home). I anticipate wearing them in the house and around town on weekends or on a casual Friday to work now that I'm home.
