Pleasant Surprise. When I opened the box I thought there was no way I was going to squeeze my foot in to these. I normally wear a size 9.5 - 10 E or EE and these looked VERY narrow coming out of the box. I also took previous reviewers advice & ordered down a size(9), so upon 1st glance I was bummed....

    I first saw these shoes on a colleague and thought, "what a great looking shoe", he said thats all he wears and orders multiple pairs at a time. I couldn't wait to buy a pair for myself, he was right these shoes are great, very comfortable. Love the color selection.

    Looks like a very well made shoe, but it really is at least one full size larger than listed. I'm surprised that ST doesn't advise about this in product description. Back they go.

    Pleasant Surprise. When I opened the box I thought there was no way I was going to squeeze my foot in to these. I normally wear a size 9.5 - 10 E or EE and these looked VERY narrow coming out of the box. I also took previous reviewers advice & ordered down a size(9), so upon 1st glance I was bummed. After squeezing into these and taking a few steps, they quickly became a 2nd skin. There is a pronounced arch, so if you have a flat foot these may be uncomfortable. The vibram sole is thick enough for minor trail hiking, but I wouldn't take these on a weekend trail excursion or spend a lot of time walking the pavement in fear of them wearing down. Enjoy!

    I walk 4 miles during my lunch every day and these shoes were comfortable right out of the box.

    The only issue with the shoe is if you normally wear a 10.5 order a 9.5. Sizing is off at least one full size. Besides that I love them.
