Perfect for my needs

I have been on a hunt for trail shoes that have minimal heel elevation for walking in better alignment. These shoes are it! I was so glad to find them. I have worn them half a dozen times walking/jogging with the dog and around town. They were immediately comfortable, no need to break in; the footbed is sufficiently padded. As the photo shows, the shoe comes up around the ankle a little more than some shoes but for my thinner feet and ankles this is perfect. I do wear them with ankle socks, but the features add up to a very good fit and comfortable, well-aligned walking. The toe and sides are also reinforced with a coating that protects toes and shoes; this is a sturdy but not huge layer of protection (in contrast to the brand of shoes that has the trademark toe bumper, which always looks so overly large in my size 10!). I hope STP will continue to carry shoes with minimal heels, such as this pair.
