The mesh material is not made to keep your feet dry around water, however; the shoes do dry quickly. Surprisingly, the shoes are warm even in cold weather.

    Shoes are going on 1 1/2 years and starting to break down now. They do run small, I usually wear 11 but ordered 11.5. I think I may have done okay with my true size however, as they stretch out. The outside material is pretty thin and I'm seeing holes starting so I don't think they'll make it 2 years. I will wear for yard work until they completely blow out. I did replace the thin laces (which broke at about 9 months) with some quick laces.
    An okay shoe, but don't think I would buy them again unless heavily discounted. I find the Columbia trail running shoes on this site to be more supportive. As a side note, I am not overly hard on my shoes, and these never got wet, etc. so your mileage might be different if your running these daily in all kinds of weather.

    So far the Garmont Escape Trail Running shoes have meet my needs, except the shoe laces are thin string and broke after wearing these shoes for a few weeks. The shoe laces don't lace up like normal shoe laces. They are a continuous draw string loop that has a fastener that tightens the shoe string. The loose shoe string gets tucked in a small pocket. One shoe string got caught on a loose nail on my deck and had no give and ripped apart.

    They look good, but are at least a whole size small and lack any good support.

    I have only wore the Garmont 9.81 Escape trail running shoe a few times around the yard and to work. So far they seems like a god quality shoe. I ordered a 1/2 size larger and the shoes fell a little loose in the heal. I wear wool hiking socks and they help the fit a little.

    • According to our fit models the Garmont 9.81 Escape Trail Running Shoes runs true to size, I would recommend ordering your normal size.
