Verified Buyer Reviewed by Stevie from MN, USA on Tuesday, November 17, 2015I'm a guy who has very narrow feet with high arches and have a lot of trouble finding shoes that fit me well, not many men's shoes come in N width, so I tend to look for women's shoes that don't look too feminine. These look good on me and fit my feet well. In the color I bought, they're almost completely black with a small amount of purple trim.
They are comfortable, but were a bit too roomy for my weird feet (Size 12 vs. my men's size 10 in running shoes) and have very little arch support; not unexpected, no shoes support my arches well. Swapping the insoles with more supportive ones made the fit perfect.
Traction is awesome, even on wet leaves up a muddy trail, equivalent to deep vibram lug soles but without the stiffness. The flexible soles wrap around rocks and roots well; feel and flexibility are good. The laces have a small amount of stretch which spreads out the load as you move and the gore tex layer and gusset tongue do a good job keeping out debris and wind.
Overall they're like a very flexible, light, low day hiker with better traction and far better for running in the boonies.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Shoe girl from OHIO on Friday, October 2, 2015Unfortunately, these are very narrow at the toe bed and I did not find that to be comfortable. Had the toe bed been wider, they would have been keepers.
