I have only wore the Garmont 9.81 Escape trail running shoe a few times around the yard and to work. So far they seems like a god quality shoe. I ordered a 1/2 size larger and the shoes fell a little loose in the heal. I wear wool hiking socks and they help the fit a little.

These are great shoes. I actually ordered a pair from REI for $61, then saw them on STP with my coupon and got them for $40 instead. I like these shoes a lot, the pair I order from REI were sz 12, my usual size in 95% of the shoes I own. However, when I tried them on I couldn't walk for any duration of time, the overly snug fit eliminated any functionality or comfort. So I sent them back and thought I'd give them another try through STP at a $20 discount. I ordered size 13, I've never worn a 13 before in my life but they fit great. I got the gray ones. They're good looking, I've worn them on multiple hikes, to workout, and simply around town. They are comfortable and I love the drawstring laces, all that said, plan on ordering a size larger than normal. Highly recommended trail shoes.
