I love these shoes!

The Ultra Raptor is my first pair of trail shoes, ever, so I didn't really know what to expect. I'm chose them after trying on several different pairs of trail runners; La Sportiva Wildcats, Brooks Cascadia, Brooks Adrenaline, several different Saucony styles, etc. I chose these because I plan on hiking a 36 mile trail that has several river fordings, and I needed a pair with minimal padding so they would dry out during my hike. I've worn these for about 20 miles so far, and they are SO comfortable. I normally wear a women's size 8.5 to 9, and I have a wide foot. I bought these in a 41.5 (which is a men's 8.5) and they fit perfectly for hiking. They give me plenty of room in the toebox, yet don't slide around on my foot. Also, Sierra Trading had the BEST price available by far. (I just waited for the right email coupon.)
