I normally wear a 6 in running shoes, which leaves me plenty of room in the toe for movement of my foot. I got a 6 in this product and my toes were literally touching the front of the toe portion. Purchase at least one size up if interested. Additionally, there was very little give to the sole inside or out. I felt like Frankenstein trying to clomp around in these things. The toebox is very narrow, that's just a problem for me and anyone else the has squared off toebox, put a lot of pressure on the outside of my foot. Last but not least, I could actually feel the leather and stitching of the upper on the top of my foot. Very uncomfortable shoes, I won't be buying these again, probably not even the brand. I am NOT impressed, or rather very negatively impressed.

As soon as I saw them in the box I knew they were not going to work for my feet. The toe box is MUCH narrower than it looks in the photos (not rounded). Plus, they are very short- at least a half size if not a full size. Too short + too pointed in the toe and I sent them back. Several reviews had mentioned that they were roomy in the toe but I didn't find that to be true. They also seemed rather stiff but I never got to wear them.

Have bad feet and knees, took these backpacking to Europe, lots of steep uphills and irregular terrain. They were great, no aches or pains! They are light weight and look good. Run small, though. Order at least one size up.

These would probably be a great shoe for most women, but I had to return them. They felt great at first, but after I sat at my desk for 20 minutes my big toe on my right foot went numb. The height and width of the big toe area was inadequate for me. Do not usually have this problem...
