good light hiking shoe

Verified Buyer Reviewed by casual hiker from NC on Wednesday, July 5, 2017
Comfortable right out of the box, large toe area. As other reviewers noted, runs a 1/2 size small (I ordered both my regular size and 1/2 up and kept the larger shoe). Wore them for a 7 mile hike, no problems, but the sole is not as rugged as I would like. I could feel the rocks, tree limbs under my feet - not in a painful way, just more noticeable. I like a more rugged sole for leverage when hiking - I count on the rigidity of the sole to help climb up rocks, etc. The sole on these shoes is more flexible, which might make them more comfortable, but for me, not as good for hiking. I would recommend these shoes for light trekking.
