I like to trail run. I never tried this particular shoe before but it had good reviews. I wore them to work and on a 4 mile flat run. While at work I wore regular socks they size was okay but my feet felt a little warm in them. I took them on a 4 mile flat run with my running socks which are a bit heavier and my feet sweated. This has not happened with my previous shoes. There was not enough breath-ability in the shoe for me. It was uncomfortable to run in them. They might be okay for a casual walker
