I distance walk for exercise and lately have been having difficulties with other brands of shoes. I have had foot and ankle pain which lead to me giving up walking. On the recommendation of a friend I tried Karhu. I am so happy that I did. I love them. I put them on and after my first few steps I was in love. Not one to hesitate in putting a product to the test I went out for a four mile walk aside from being a bit tired as I had stopped my walking routine my legs and feet had no pain. I am grateful that Sierra Trading Post carries this product and offers such a wonderful shopping experience on their website!! Thank you for giving me my hobby back, you guys rock.

I'm not privy to technicalities on running shoes, but these shoes have performed very well and have held up for more than 12 months. I wear a 10.5 shoe and these were true to size and fit. I use them for light runs and now they have transitioned into being an everyday chore shoe. I would certainly purchase another pair as these shoes have exceeded my expectations. For the STP prices, these shoes are worth the value and I would recommend them overall.

These would be about my 6th pair of Karhus and as per usual, they fit the ground running. There's nothing to fault - heel fit is perfect, toe box is wide enough but supportive and the feel underfoot is just right. Supportive and firm at the same time.
These ones feel like they're really working to get me over my feet & into a better posture. Love them.

Previous Brooks addiction runner. 9.5 feels true to size. I did notice a gentle propelled roll forward as compared to Brooks. Energizing! Very cushy comfortable. Ran 6 miles with no pronation issues. I ordered a second pair, however had to return them because the fit of the right foot just felt off. I exchanged the defective pair for the Karhu Stable 3 Fulcrum which are also keepers.
