Run a little small
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 8.5
I'm usually between an 8-8.5 in any given shoe. I ordered an 8.5 in these shows and my toes are just near the top of the shoe - I think a 9 would be too big. But I did a 10 mile hike in them yesterday (long for me) which was 5 miles downhill and my toes are fine and my feet feel great. The toe box is nice and wide - I love it. They are not super-cushiony shoes but I didn't have any issues over the rocky terrain...definitely not in the "barefoot" range either.
The laces are too short which is super annoying - I'm going to have to buy longer ones and then they won't match which is why I'm taking a star off. Ultimately I'm a fan of this brand and will buy them again (and probably try a 9 in the future).
