What is the drop on this traverse trail shoe? Thank you.
Can these be used for Spartan or Mud related races?
I have wide feet. Is this brand recomened for that? If so, I wear a size 9, should I size up for these like I would for hiking shoes?
I normally wear a size 8 shoe. According to several reviews, customers ordered a 1/2 size larger. Do you recommend I order a size 8 or 8.5. Also, does this show have a arch support...I have weak arches. Thank you.
Would these shoes work for distance trail running (50-100k)? I am looking for shoes with great grip on a variety of surfaces, particularly wet rock. When I run trails, I spend a lot of time power hiking too.
I have another question about sizing. I just lost a toenail due to inadequate room in the toebox and am wondering if I should go up a full size if the shoe runs small. I normally wear a 9.5 but am considering a 10.5?
The top down view of this shoe appears to show a relatively wide heal. Is this the case? If so, is there another women's hiking shoe that has a narrow heal? I actually need a women's AA heal and a B or C ball of the foot.
Would this approach shoe work well for moderate scrambling and easy climbing, or would I be better off going with a climbing brand approach shoe like Five Ten or Scarpa? Looking for ones that would be good for doing long multi-pitch scrambling/easy climbs
