I wanted to use these for group fitness classes because I've got other "trail shoes" that have excellent stability for doing such exercises as lunges, jumps, stepping and kicking. I was disappointed with this particular shoe because of the odd sizing (order smaller... they are too big), and the fit in the heel. Even when I got the correct size, my heel felt like it was sliding out of the shoe. The opening there was too big for my foot, which is small, but proportionate. I decided to use them for day-to-day casual wear, NOT gym wear. Otherwise, they are a sharp-looking, comfortable shoe.

I normally wear a 4.5 women's shoe, if I'm lucky a 5.0. I saw two comments saying this shoe was too big and one that said it was too small. I was disappointed that I had to pay $10+ in shipping/handling for something that did not fit. I would recommend to a friend but state that she order a half size smaller.

First time I've owned this brand. Runs big probably because of the unisex shoe. I ordered a women's size 6.5 and had to return it for a 6. Still runs a 1/2 size too big but will be ok with thick socks. Like the looks of the shoe. I wore it for 15 hrs the first day, very comfortable.

I bought these shoes because of the good reviews. Was looking to purchase another Helly Hansen shoe I have that has been the best hiking shoe ever and came across this shoe thinking it would be comparable. It is a nice style but the foot bed is flatter than I need and my feet hurt with just a 45 min walk on pavement. They're ok for being on my feet off and on, working all day but not OK for long walks/hikes.

This is the first time I ordered shoes online. I am a size 7 and the shoes fit perfectly. They are cute as well so I can wear them more than just for hiking. I am a new hiker and this is my first pair so I cannot compare to any other shoes, but I am satisfied with these shoes.
