I have other waterproof shoes(such as katmandu) for hiking, but my instep get pain every time. It's like a tough stuff push my instep and scratch it. Awful experience when I was hiking in Chile.

They have a great balance of support combined with light weight. I can run in them comfortably, but they are also stable when traversing broken terrain. They're comfortable in a broad range of temperatures -- they do well in cold weather with a good insulating sock, or in hot weather with a light, wicking sock. I also appreciate the rigid toe, which helps save your toes from bruising against stones and roots. And in my experience, they also don't easily get smelly like some hiking shoes do.
In other reviews, I see some comments complaining about the waterproofing being less then perfect. I don't agree with this. In my experience, the waterproofing on these is very good -- I have walked through puddles, wet snow, mud, and even shallow streams without a drop getting through. But these are a below-the-ankle upper, so if you step in deeper wet, or if a lot of water is coming down from above (e.g., heavy rain), water will sneak in around the ankle and your feet will eventually get wet. No low-rise hiking sneaker can prevent this. If you need seriously waterproof footwear, you should be looking for an above-the-ankle boot.
My one minor gripe: The included laces suck. They don't stay tied, even with a double knot. But this is easily fixed.
I'd give these shoes a pretty average (decent) tread life rating compared to other shoes in this class. The tread doesn't last as long as it does in my heavier hiking boots, but it's also a softer compound that isn't designed for the same purpose. The tread is pretty grippy, which is nice on hikes along exposed rock areas. I use these as hiking shoes, everyday shoes, and running shoes.
Honestly, I hope TNF never discontinues these.
I bought this because I was impressed with the super grippy soles of my current pair of TNF Ultra Fastpack GTX Woven shoe, which I believe is the Vibram Megagrip sole. Sadly, the Hedgehog does not comes with the same soles. They are made by Vibram, but it's not as "sticky". Totally my fault for not doing more research.
The bad. I have only worn it twice and there are already signs of wear at the soft foamy material near the soles, as shown in the pic. I have only worn it in urban/indoors so far. Let's hope it can hold up when I bring these to the wilderness
