by Sonja the Screen NamefromGreat, runs bigI am returning this fine looking shoe and exchanging it for a 38, because I am a women's 8, and it is at least one size too big, though I bought the size correlating to the women's 8. Sizing is weird. The box says: Euro 39.5, M 7, W 8. Usually a men's 6.5 is a women's 8. Anyway, it's big. My toe has still an inch at the top to go. Maybe more. So, I'll be getting the 38. Hazzaah!
ONce I actually wear it, I'll let you know if it makes me faster or not. Looks like it does.

by LorenBooksfromGreat shoeThis shoe has zero lift in the heel, making it almost a minimalist shoe. But it has more padding and comfort than a severe minimalist shoe. It is stable because it keeps your foot low to the ground, rather than adding all kinds of bells and whistles for "stability." The rubber is sticky and also seems to last pretty long. One drawback: the seam between the sole and the footbed is not water tight. I H2O proofed the suede, but the shoe seeps water from the sole if you step IN a creek or something. Otherwise, it's great for 5-8 mile daily hikes.

by BlueOrangefromFantasic Footwear!These shoes are great for every day walking around, however, I found them not so comfortable for a long walk on a paved road. When I took that walk on an unpaved trail, much better! I've received many compliments on the appearance of the shoes and I would recommend them and buy them again.
