    I was cruising the outlets awhile back trying to find a new approach style shoe. Cruising Rack Room Shoes I spied some Wengers. Dang they looked good, but they only had 8's. So, not finding my size to try has led to a long cooling off period instead of immediate footisfaction.
    Anyone wear these pups?

    I found some in my local sams club a few months back and bought a pair. Don't recall the style name of what I got, but they were black and grey, kind of a hiking/cross trainer combo. Very comfortable for everyday use, but I wouldn't recommend them for heavy duty use, don't feel like they offer a lot of support. Overall I like them a lot, and I only paid around $25 for them.

    I have a pair of Wenger boots and a pair of shoes. I like one but the other not so much. Wenger licenses their name for these so don't look for "Made in Switzerland" on the label.

    The Wenger Compass shoes are very nice. They're comfortable and the tread is a grippy Vibram.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the Wenger Jackson hiking boots. They felt stiff, cramped and generally of lower quality than the Compass shoes.

    Powerring, Thanks for getting back! It was a low cut I saw. Not sure now if it was the Compass. You know outlets, usually not the latest stuff.

    No problem. I actually bought both of them through Sierra Trading Post which is basically an outlet too. I've had pretty good luck with most of the Wenger/Swissgear branded stuff. I have a couple of the backpacks too which are nicely designed and constructed.
