Maybe my foot is weirder than I thought, but wish Sierra would show the SOLE shape of any footwear. I have no foot aches but do have trouble with fit, feet tend to point out, are wide and fat. Take that into consideration if you read this. Seemed a bit short for the size. This really straight shoe caused instant twist and ache in my arch. But I can tell it would give great traction and support, nice heel fit. Sad to have to send them back.

These minimalist shoes are great for trail running on semi-rugged trails with some rocks and stumps as long as you don't mind feeling a bit of the trail. If you like really cushy running shoes, they are not for you. I have another pair of New Balance minimalist shoes with Vibram soles that I also really like, but those have less protection on the forefoot so ideally they would make trail runners with Vibram soles AND a forefoot plate to protect against sharp rocks on trails. Both pairs are super light. The sizing for this shoe is the same as for my other pair -- in normal walking shoes I wear size 7 and I wear size 8 in most running shoes including these New Balance trail runners.
