    These are super light weight & very breathable - the perfect combo for running. However, they didn't provide much overall foot support when continuously stepping on hard concrete road. The backs of the shoe were too high & too rigid so they continually rubbed on the backs of my feet until I had blisters. I usually do 10 miles hiking & running but these didn't last more than a few miles before my feet were begging me to go home. They look great & the toe bed had plenty of room but the design of the shoe isn't superb. I tried these in my true size & a 1/2 size up. Both had issues & both had to be returned. A huge disappointment.

    After 1 1/2 hours on a logging road (gravel, loose rocks, a few hilly places) my feet were begging for more cushioning. Much better after adding foam insoles. Excellent traction, good feel of the ground let me know where the rough places were. Very light weight, not much support. As advertised, fine for short warm weather hikes on easy terrain. Good toe room. Love the laces, easy to snug up, don't slip. Good value.

    I'm a 6.5/7. Ordered in my usual 7.5 because I like extra toe box space, but it felt more than a size larger than my 7.5 montrails, salomon, etc. Like, comically large. Exchanged for a 6.5 and those fit, but felt a half size more snug than I like in length but still large in width and at the ankle. I have pretty average feet, maybe a touch more narrow than most, with average ankles and heels. The main problem was the width, heel and ankles, which made it impossible for me to lace up tightly enough to provide any stability. I ended up rolling my ankle on some gravel pretty quickly. No injury, but I could tell that it would be a recurring problem so I sent them back as well. I guess I could have tried thicker socks, but I intended these for hot summer days. Overall, a super light and potentially comfortable shoe for someone with wide feet and somewhat thicker ankles. They were pretty cute too, if that matters to you. I would recommend ordering at least 1/2 size down.
