Comfortable, Fit Well

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Stevie from MN, USA on Tuesday, November 17, 2015
I'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.
