Not sure if I will keep these or not, because the definitely feel a bit tight in the bunion area, despite being a bit different shape than other similar shoes. I am leaning to returning it....also, the front does not seem to be wide enough for my toes to "splay". Not sure what other shoe to buy, I was planning to start some trail running (woods) but really need a wider shoe. They are well-made, quality materials, etc. not loose in the heel.
Update on review: I did return for a size 8-1/2 and it does have more room in the toe area for me. The 2nd pair (the 8-1/2) box came with a booklet and a pair of "stone guard" inserts to place under the removeable insole - the first box did not have either, though that pair was brand new, no sign of wear, etc. Happy with the larger size.
The shoes are really lightweight, which is what I like for hiking. I don't like to feel like I'm wearing weights on my feet! And I absolutely LOVE that these have a gaiter trap; I otherwise have to add Velcro to my shoes to affix my gaiters. Great pair of shoes if you want a nice close-to-ground feel for hiking.
