Sizing notes

For rock climbing shoes: Choose soft shoes two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size. We recommend you fit your trad shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size. Remember to factor in stretch. Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch about one full size. Lined shoes stretch about a half size. Remember: a well-fit comfortable shoe will work better than an ill-fitting tighter shoe. For boots: Add one half size to your street shoe size. You should be able to slip one finger behind your heel when you are standing up with the boot unlaced and your toes touching the front. If the boot is too short, your toes will get smashed walking downhill. Too long and your heel will slide up and down and give you blisters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the men's version REI did not have these available to try on so I took a chance and bought them online. I was expecting them to be exactly the same as the men's version which I bought last year and loved but the smallest size available was about a half size too big for me. These are not the same as the men's shoe at all. They are wider, the tongue is stiff, and the rubber on the toe offers much less protection. The stiff tongue hurts the top of my toes and I don't like not having as much protection for my toes. I REALLY wish they would take the men's version and just make it in smaller sizes for women.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The most comfortable shoes I've ever had BUT...... I just came back from 2 week long 180-mile backpacking on PCT in high Sierra. I have small but very flat and wide feet so choosing shoes is always a challenge. I like Salomon shoes but it hurts my feet as it doesn't offer wide option for women's size 6.5. It'll take me a LONG TIME to stretch till I feel comfortable. This shoes provided room to expend for my wide feet as it is all mesh and it was comfortable from the beginning. I was worried about durability and support for steep downhill but I decided to give it a try after testing 20 mile hike without any problem. It performed very well. It was comfortable for my wide feet and it gripped rocks fine (this was my concern as I saw others complaining). Except.... it started to fall a part pretty fast. Front part where it is glued was lifting up and I was worried if I have to find super glue in the mountains. On the steep rocky downhill, I kept tightening up my shoe lace but it jammed my toes. It just didn't feel like it had good support on the steep downhill. It dried pretty fast in the sun but we were in the snow melting area so my feet with blisters stayed wet for few days straight and it didn't give my blisters chance to heal. I missed my hiking boots. I chose this shoes for PCT hike as it was recommended by REI sales rep but maybe it is not as durable as it should be for rough terrain..... I would buy it again for local day hikes as it is comfortable and light. If you are going to use it for trail running shoes around town, this shoes should work fine for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I've been struggling with buying my first pair of trail running shoes. I got directed to the real highly padded ones at first (like the Hokas) and it just wasn't working for me. I realized that really want I needed was just a running shoe that was a little burlier than normal, and that's exactly what this is. It isn't waterproof (would be too hot) and the upper really does look and feel like an old worn in pair of tennis shoes. The tread however is very sturdy had has lugs that actually feel sticky on rocks. They give me a lot more confidence when running the downhill sections of my trail run because I don't feel like I'll slip. The other nice think about these verse other more rugged trail running shoes is that you *can* run with these on pavement. The trail run I typically do is about 4 miles, with about .75 of a mile at the end on a paved trail. I didn't want a shoe that would make me miserable running on pavement, and these did great. Size-wise they fit me great, but I have wide feet. The toe box is actually a little wider than I expected it to be, which is awesome for me but may spell trouble for those with narrow feet. Overall I really like these. I've had no foot problems since I've started running in them, and I feel a lot more confident on rocky trail.

Are both of the shoes pictured the same model? The gray shoe shoes the toe guard coming up all the way over the toes while the picture of the turquoise shoe does not.

Asked by: tambli
The two colors are different as pictured. The turquoise/grey is the 3.0 version.
