4 out of 5 stars.

Best shoe ever, but nearly impossible to get dog sh*t out of the tread.

1 out of 5 stars.

Mine completely fell apart with minimal use. Maybe I got a lemon...

Great compromise approach/descent shoe for me. My Exum Ridge shoes wear relatively well for hiking in and provides good traction for descents. I was very tired of slipping on descents using other approach shoes.

4 1/2 stars.

yeah, mine fell apart very quickly too. Pretty disappointed with them. 1/5 stars. I give them one star because they look cool.

This post was supposed to be a joke because I can't get the dog shit out of mine. Oh well.

Got some Evolv Escapists. Feel great right out of the box.

Uh oh, I just got a pair and so far really like them. They feel like they're going to last longer than the Cirque Pros I owned but now I don't know. Despite the sole coming apart on my Cirques they still lasted 2 years before the started falling off my feet. jmeizis

i've liked my exum pros. definitely would give a positive review, but i've only had them for a month or so, and i won't say anything too glowing about them too soon. Aaron Martinuzzi

I love them as flatirons scrambling shoes and for talus hopping 14ers. Mine lasted about a year before they rubber wasn't as sticky climbing in them so they got retired from soloing duty. They're still fine hiking and peaking bagging shoes. I beat the crap out of them pretty good in the first year. Chris Plesko

Light, comfortable for my wide foot. Took them out of the box and took off an a 18 mile round trip hike without a problem. So far seem durable and sticky soles too. 5 out of 5 for this guy. Barry Collins

I have had 2 pairs of Exum Ridges over the years. Mediocre shoe at best. I am in love w/ my Boulder X's though. They climb and hike circles around the E.R.s
Mos def my fav approach shoe and possibly shoe of all time.
