Amazing hiking shoes!

I have a low volume foot with a narrow heel & need a roomy toe box-these shoes meet every need.The tongue is slightly padded in a fabulous way,so the shoe can be securely laced without digging into the boney top of my foot.The sole is terrific,not too thin so you feel every rock and stick, and grippy! I wore them on my first hike in the Eastern Sierras in September and the last few miles were shallow ice and snow. A more aggressive snow boot would have been safer (I hadn't anticipated the frozen conditions, it was almost shirtsleeves weather) but my Bushidos got me out and back safely! I paid full price at a store in September,but just wanted to let STP shoppers know how nice these are.For comparison,I am also happy with the Montrail Caldorados I bought here at STP-still has a great sole,maybe a bit thinner, but this shoe is a bit cushier but not in a sloppy cushier way-just a teeny bit of padding in all the right places.
