    First off, I ordered a size 13 even though I'm typically a true size 12, at times maybe 12.5. The 13s fit me like a charm. They are, if anything, maybe a centimeter longer than comparable Nike size 12s and I can certainly manage the extra space. These shoes are as comfortable as running shoes, yet they feature the excellent grip needed for moderate trail hiking. I also love the fact that they breath a bit, just not as much as a modern running shoe. I wasn't sure how I would like the lacing system, but now I love it. I can tie regular laces in double knots and still manage to untie them. With this lacing system, the shoes stay comfortably tight without needing adjustments. Also for those new to the lacing system, remember there is a pouch on the tongue to tuck the laces in once pulled tight. I wasn't sure where to place them at first as there was no indication on the packaging. With STP's excellent deals I bought these shoes for a great price and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I highly recommend these shoes and I even ended up buying a comparable women's style for my wife.

    Comfortable, rugged, well cushioned yet stable and not overly mushy, this is a great shoe but it's more of a very light hiker than a trail runner in terms of its bulkiness. As a result, breathability suffers just a bit, although it's by no means sweaty. I'm a 10.5 but I bought 11s based on reviewers recommendations that they ran a half size small. I don't think that's true at all and unfortunately I had to return the 11s and spend twice as much on some other website to purchase the 10.5s, which STP did not have in stock. As far as I'm concerned these run true to size unless you have wide feet. Since the shoe is intended for fast hikes on rugged terrain they do tend to be form fitting, esp. with the speed lace system, which works quite nicely. So why aren't these perfect? Aside from the fact that nothing's perfect, breathability is slightly reduced and they're a bit bulkier than I'd prefer.

    I took these on a six mile hike right I after I bought them—they’re fantastic! They’re my first pair of Salomon shoes and so far I’m very impressed. They do seem to run a ½ size small, so order a little big.

    Lace system is quick and easy, they breathe well, great traction and support. construction seems good - hopefully they stand the test of time. sizing seems to be right on.

    I went on a 9 mile hike through mud, snow, and rock in the Mt Rainier national park; and these shoes performed perfectly. No blisters or any hot spots. The lacing system took a short period to figure out how to adjust to be the way I wanted. The traction on these shoes is fantastic . They breathe well, my feet never felt hot.

    Very comfortable shoes. I have always loved Salomon's footwear. Def runs a 1/2 size small.
