Toe Box is Wide, Runs Large
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 9.5
Great shoe, great grip. Didn't really know how much I would like the forefoot 'freedom', but seems to encourage an almost 'barefoot' gate. Runs about a half size large. Significantly larger than my Speed Cross 4s. Super comfortable trail shoe, without the silly 'pillow effect' of some of other shoes I tried. 'Unencumbered' protection is the best way I can describe this shoe.
Glad to hear that the toe box is wide since I am a big fan of Altras. I enjoy being able to move my toes in a shoe and grab with them as I plant. Considering the XA Wild as a snow-running shoe,--so if they tend to fit .5 size large that means my usual 10.5 will accommodate a winter-weight sock.
