I purchased these Scarpa hikers because I was looking for a waterproof "low-rise" hiking and walking shoe for the warmer months. I needed a firm shoe due to a bad right ankle . These shoes did not disappoint. They have a great tread, and supportive upper without being too stiff. I've not had any problems with pinching or rubbing, even with mild (but chronic) enlargement around my ankle joints from scar tissue. My husband owns a pair of Scarpa hiking boots and he likes them so much I thought I would give these a try. I'm glad I did. I will mention that these don't have a super cushy memory-foam-like interior liner. If you want a soft insole, these shoes might not be for you. This shoe does not have a wide toe box like keen or (some) Merrell shoes. However, if you have an average to narrow foot, these will work for you. Great looking, super gripping bottom and an upper that (so far) has minimized ankle rolling.
