I've gone through three pairs of GTX 106s. They were by far the best trail running and all round trail shoes I've ever had. They were perfect in nearly all conditions. The 106s were very well constructed and all three are still 100% intact and functional, albeit in a diminished capacity due to tread wear. When I saw the 106s were replaced by the 109s I was frantic when I could not find 106s anywhere, but went ahead and ordered the 109s. Upon inspection it was obvious VF Corp saved some money on the construction of the 109s. I tried them on and they were comfortable but required a break-in. I did some moderate hikes and runs and was satisfied, though I knew I was in a cheaper shoe. However, when they were 3 weeks old I spent a weekend hiking Linville Gorge and the adhesive from the sole to the midsole failed on both shoes. I'm returning them. Very disappointed they wrecked the perfect shoe.

After three pairs of the 106 from REI, I went to REI for another, but found the 109 on the shelf instead. Tread is identical, upper is similar, basic sizing/fit seemed the same (12/12), so I got a pair of 109s. Having worn them past break-in, I'm returning the 109s because the on-the-trail feel is completely different from the 106. Specific differences include that I feel rocks more than with the 106, and that the throat closes together more when snugging the laces, suggesting the upper is cut way different (not the same last?). Overall not as comfortable.

I bought these just before a hiking trip. They were a little stiff at first but they broke in nicely and were lightweight. They are not high-end hiking shoes but they were good for the price. I need either 12 or 13 depending on the shoes and these were 12 and were a good fit. I will probably replace the inserts with better ones, which I do on most of my shoes but they were OK.

I bought these to replace a four year old pair of 109s. This model has a more rugged look than the old one which looks more like a trail runner. This was my only concern. When I got them they fit like a glove - better than the old model. Shortly after I received these, I took them on a two month trip to Europe wearing them almost everyday. I walked on cobblestones, streets and off streets, up hills and down. These felt like air pillows. They are fantastic shoes.

Very solid and sturdy walking shoe. I pretty much only urban "hike" in these, so I won't speak to being on the trails or rocks, but in the past I get a good 9-11 months before the outer heel sole begins to erode too much to affect my step. But usually the rest of the shoe still looks great, and it feels odd to toss them but I do like the feel of the intact sole. These new ones look a bit more sturdy but are monochrome -- all black with a bit of grey. I miss the elements of blue in the last similar design. Also, I find I need a half size bigger in these. There's a little room then, but it's easy to tie the shoe tight so as not to move, and I find I need that room for comfort with these.
