Runs 1/2 size small
I really wanted to love these - they seem perfect for less intense hikes (good tread, waterproof, gusseted tongue, arch support, toe protection), and have the appeal of running shoe comfort. Plus, they’re not brown. But they’re super snug, even with thinner socks on. Also, the laces are very thin, kind of like doubled-up baker’s string. I’m either going to try the next 1/2 size up or pick a different model. Sadness.
