excellent, slightly narrow

Verified Buyer Reviewed by mudman from rainforest, northwest on Sunday, August 2, 2015
Very supportive and lightweight -- great for both trails and everyday use. Easy to put on and easy to take off, even with the impressive lacing to the toe. Laces also do not slip with use, allowing a custom fit on the lower foot that stays put. This is very nice for those, like me, who have a wider foot. I can cinch the toes relatively snug while leaving the mid-section relatively loose over the arch, and I don't have to mess with redoing the "setting" each time I wear the shoes.

Note on fit:
I usually take a 10.5 in brands known for fitting wider feet (Keen, Teva, Danner). These shoes in 10.5 seemed quite narrow when I first tried them on, and I nearly returned them. However, after wearing them in the house for a few hours, the shoes seemed to stretch slightly and became very comfortable, especially with the lace adjustment mentioned above. So give them a little time before making any decision on a return. All in all, I'd have to say the shoes are true to size (and not as narrow as Lowa products, which I can't wear).

Very happy with purchase
