The Montrail Fluidfeel II is true to size, weighs 24 ounces for a pair of 12.5 shoes and has a very soft feel in the sole and heel. I'm happy with the shoe for either trail running or walking. I do about 120 miles per week. I'd give it 5 stars but need to see how they wear. The soles appear rugged but sometimes I've found that the thread around top of the toe box frays on other shoes. If these shoes wear well and last, they would be 5 stars rated.

I'm really happy with these shoes. They are comfortable and tighten up well. I don't use them a lot, but they've gotten a bit grippier with use as the soles have been scuffed up. I really like the pointed toe. The only thing I wish was a little different is the flex in the sole. There really just isn't much flex. Overall, though, a great shoe.

This is my first pair of Montrails and I'm super impressed so far. I cannot speak to durability, but the build quality and stitching is first rate. I wear a pretty standard 12 with normal width, and these are spot on (though I will say these have to be the shortest laces I've encountered in some time... after I double knot, there's about one inch of laces sticking out in any direction from the knot). Most importantly is the comfort and traction, which both appear to be excellent. This shoe has the most comfortable first strike that I've ever felt... every footfall feels cushioned but yet not disconnected from the ground.
I bought this primarily for a multipurpose, lightweight shoe (the soles are substantial - this is no minimalist shoe - but it weighs very little) for upcoming two-week travel that will include mostly urban exploration but also probably 4 days light hiking and outdoors exploration. I think they fit the bill perfectly. They've required no break in period (ymmv), and I think when I get back they may just replace my beloved Salomon's as my favorite go-to multipurpose shoe.
