The Timberland Chocorua Trail is an excellent all-around shoe that can be worn as casual shoe or for trail walking and hiking. The fit is snug, but yet not tight. As such, there is good footing control when walking. There are no hot spots, and no heel slippage -- just a perfect glove fit. The shoe is extremely easy to put on and take off, and stays tied throughout the entire time. As for comfort, I would rate this shoe five out five stars. There is excellent shock absorption, while footing is always maintained. All in all this is an excellent shoe.

I purchased these shoes primarily to be used for riding my motorcycle. I have extra wide feet, and can't seem to find riding boots that work. These shoes are not only comfortable for riding, but feel very nice while walking. I would definitely buy another pair when these wear out.
