I can't recall ever seeing one, but I might not be very observant. By my understanding bushwalkers are only converted to volleys by hearing them recommended and seeing them in action on other walkers who swear by them. Perhaps bushwalkers are an insignificant percentage of overall sales, but I do wonder why the company has never trialled the shoes, or properly promoted them, to the bushwalking subset. If something is not done soon about the declining quality, then with the volley we might all be taking our final strides. Check out this cool poem about the death of a pair of volleys. http://greenaissance.com/html/the_final_stride.html

I got a big hiking in January next year and need the proper shoes since it will be a very wet hike: rock-hopping on slimy rock and scrambling up low yet all wet rock boulders.
I was wondering if the company has addressed the large volume of complaints since then and marketed an specific Volley model for hiking enthusiasts following the tradition of the old Volleys.
