Almost there

I normally wear and run in Merrell's zero drop line of shoes. I wanted a warmer alternative that is water proof and I choose these. They are indeed waterproof and they are warm compared to my Merrell shoes. I really like the traction on these and the slight padding and minimal drop is ok for winter conditions. The cut of the shoe is the reason for me knocking off a star. The heel cup is ok, the tongue is alright, the width of the toe box seems ok. The issue is the end of the tongue where it meets the toe box, its tight. I had to back the laces way off and it still feels a bit tight. I cannot wear thick socks in these. Luckily the smartwool running socks I got here on STP work wonderfully with this shoe. I really like the all black looks and the fit and finish of the shoe appear to be well done.
