I don't get the other reviews on this boot. On my foot, it fit like the typical euro-style boots I've tried (Asolo, Vasque, Soloman, etc.) in that they are narrow, especially in the toe box. These are no Keens in the toe box area - Keens fit my foot perfectly, but the soles won't last 10 miles on the granite trails of the Sierra Nevada where I hike so I've been endlessly searching for a comparable fit with vibram soles. These aren't even close. They are stiff (which is fine), but the stiff, pointy-ended toe box had the outer part of my big and little toes in pain within five minutes of wear. I'm guessing that if a boot like the Vasque Breeze 2 GTX (which I own and hate; this fits my foot almost identically in size and feel) fits you well this one will too.

On the positive side they are well-built and relatively light, with appropriate stiffness and support for medium-to-heavy hiking. My foot measures to 9 3/4 - I typically wear 10 or 10 1/2 in hiking boots - these in size 9 1/2 fit me perfectly length-wise with room for heavier socks or my foot to expand (length-wise).
