Great Shoe

Reviewed by Outdoorgirl from Northern California on Tuesday, April 10, 2018
I hike 50-90 miles at a time, and I have tried many different hiking shoes in my search for the perfect shoe. While not the mythical perfect shoe, this is a very good shoe. The sole is very grippy - even in wet slippery conditions, which gives peace of mind. The shoe is breathable, yet waterproof (unless you decide to wade across a river in them). The shoe has the necessary stiffness for rocky terrain, backpacking, and uphill/downhill hiking.
A note about sizing: My street shoe size is 6.5. I usually order a 7 in hiking or running shoes. Based on the reviews here, I ordered my street shoe size of 6.5 (EU 37.5) because so many people said it ran big. It does not run big. It runs exactly true to street shoe size. I put the shoes on and my toes were right at the end. If I never intended on hiking in these, that would be no problem. Miles of downhill hiking would be a major problem. Also, one reviewer said that the toe box was big. No. The width across the ball of the foot is wide enough, but the toe box is NOT wide. It tapers. I usually tape my feet for long hikes, but I would have to tape my toes too in this shoe to prevent rubbing and blisters.
Also, the insole that comes with the shoe is very thin, and I would definitely replace with sole insoles or superfeet insoles.
