Don't order 1/2 size larger

Reviewed by Trail Runner from Sequim, WA on Wednesday, July 18, 2012
I bought these for trail running. I was concerned because I had missed a warning to buy a 1/2 size larger. I always buy New Balance 8-1/2 and these fit perfectly. A plus for me is the relatively stiff sole at the toe for a running shoe. I get pain at toe if too much flexion at the forefoot. The aqua shoelaces are too long and the color makes me feel like a clown - easily fixable by buying some neutral color laces. I don't care for the aqua plastic on the sides, but it's mostly on the inside and not so noticeable once the laces are swapped out. I kept them for the fit, comfort and stiff sole, and overall I like the silver color.
