Proved themselves 100%

I can't say enough about these shoes. I was nervous about ordering them since the shoe size stated 39 EU and the equivalent for US was 7 1/2, but I know I wear a size 8 in running shoes and I always thought that 39 was an 8. Well I'm happy that I ordered them anyway in a size 39 and they fit perfectly. I then looked at my climbing and hiking shoes and they were all 39s. The first real hike I used these on was a 14er (14,000 ft) mountain that was 40% to 60% grade up and down can crossing streams. Not once did these shoes give, the shoes proved themselves that day keeping my feet pain free and no slippage on crossing the streams. My toes did not slide to the end of the shoe coming downhill, which was great. I will say that if you have a wide foot then these might feel tight. My foot is not terribly narrow but it is slim and the heel fits snug (I usually have problems with most running shoes because there is not enough drop and I have a narrow heel). I highly recommend this shoe.
