still hopeful

This was my third purchase trying to find good shoes for hiking on an upcoming trip to Alaska. These shoes were stiff when i first put them on. After wearing them for two weeks, they are still quite stiff. I got a sore heal from rubbing, but this seems to be past. I have a narrow foot and put the insert inside which was provided, but they don't seem to feel more snug and the footpad feels a bit bumpy, so I will remove them. I like the look of the shoe, and they snug up pretty well for my narrow foot, but they just aren't as comfortable as I had hoped. I will keep wearing them in hopes that they will be what I need, but I am not overall pleased so far. I wear a 9 and bought a 9.
