Rated4out of5byMs Wanderlustfromjust what I neededI gave up hiking in full on boots a LONG time ago because I'm much more comfortable and agile in a sturdy running shoe, and I feel like, ankles aside, I get the support I need. Took these on an 8 day trip to the Wallowas and was very impressed by their performance. The arch support was perfect - I didn't get any of that mid-foot soreness or strain that I often get when hiking in boots or other shoes that don't have adequate support in that area. I felt like the toe box could use a little more cushioning, but apart from that (and considering I was carrying a 50+ pound pack at the start of the week) I was very comfortable and supported in these. They also felt great on the one morning I decided to hit the trail without my pack for a little run, so the versatility worked in my favor too, since carrying another pair of shoes was out of the question.

Rated4out of5bydesert divafromGood shoe overallMontrail shoes are always a go-to shoe. Hadn't tried this actual style until now. I have foot and knee issues and this show does really well overall. A tad less traction than I am used to, but even without my orthotics the shoe gives decent support.

Rated3out of5byButtersailsfromRuns smallGood looking shoe that I ordered online, but once I opened the box it was obvious that these were not going to fit. I ordered these in size 10 (normal shoe size is 9) but the shoes looked more like a size 7. Returned to REI.

Rated4out of5byameliahikesfromcomfy fit, snazzy lookThese shoes are great, exactly what I expected from descriptions. I haven't had them too long yet but so far have used them for trail and road walking/light running and general use. They are lightweight and very comfortable with good traction for balance on the trails. Also bright and reflective for nighttime runs. My new go-to shoe.
