Well, down hill is easier than UP hill when you carry a load!
-consider yourself FIRED upon :-)

personally I have a pair of Vasque that are OLD but still working (although
getting a little bald on the tread).  They are 15+ years old and have been on
trails in over 25 states in all kinds of weather and surfaces - any you could
imagine I would guess and have LOTS of miles on them.  I guess I should just
write them a thank-you letter and pray the next pair will be as good.
