I ordered a half size up like everyone was recommending and it fit perfect. These shoes are more for people who do not have wide feet. There would absolutely be no room for a wide foot in these shoes so don't even attempt it. These are very comfortable and very good looking. I bought the purple ones... Read More

    Great, lightweight shoe for trail-running, hiking and everyday use. Ordered an 8.5 rather than an 8 per previous buyers' suggestions...borderline too large, but fit well with mid-thick socks. Sticky bottom and tread is great on loose rocks/dirt. Have been pleasantly surprised by how waterproof these are. They'll protect against light rain and dry quickly. Very comfortable lightweight shoe.

    Cute shoes, true to size. But I was looking to replace my running shoes, and these felt too insubstantial for that. The design seems similar to minimalist running shoes I've tried, and I prefer some cushioning. They would probably be great for walking, but I didn't want them for that.

    Great fit, very comfortable, would recommend these shoes to anyone walking trails or simple hiking.

    These are some nice looking, lightweight shoes that can handle a variety of surfaces. Though they offer more stability and traction than a sneaker or even some running shoes, I wouldn't intentionally tackle unmaintained trails with these--however, that said--if you find yourself off road on a maintained trail you won't have to turn back because you have the wrong shoes on. They run about a 1/2 size short-which is fine for me--I always order 1/2 size up for athletic shoes. These fit perfectly w/light no show or ankle socks or no socks! The only "fault" I find is that they dip very low in the ankle area--much lower than pictured--so gravel, loose dirt, or sand can easily find it's way into your shoes.
    I intend to wear these as an everyday shoe--to exercise, to walk around town, in the parks, etc. and for these purposes this shoe is a great choice and exceeds expectations.
    Thanks to STP for making it possible for me to have this quality shoe at a great price!

    I was very disappointed with these shoes. I wear between a size 5.5 and 6, so when I read other reviews that said these shoes ran a bit small, I figured I would be golden with a 6. Not so much.

    These shoes were HUGE! I don't know how anyone could say they ran small because they felt at least 1, if not 1.5, sizes larger than marked. Honesly, the sizing wasn't even close. I ended up returning these and chose a different Columbia shoe that fit much better. It's too bad that these did not work out; they felt nice and light and I loved the colors.

    • It did for me in the toe box area. It put pressure on my big toe. Returning them. I would suggest trying a half-size up.
