@TimS thanks so much for reaching out to us for advice on new shoes! We just wanted to make sure you knew that even though you posted this question on the "Ask an REI Employee" board, you may get ideas and suggestions from other community member who are not employees. You'll be able to identify all REI employees by our usernames and our titles (like in @REI-AlyS's response to you, you'll see she has the REI Employee title; or in my response, you'll see my title as REI Community Manager). Hope this helps!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
