I wonder if the GTX shoes fit slightly different from the standard, as these slip on my heels more than my two pairs of standard 2650's. But still, outstandingly comfortable shoes, especially re my chronic ball-of-foot pain. And who wouldn't love that blue.
I love this shoe. I have plantar fasciitis in my right foot. These shoes provide the perfect amount of stiffness to reduce the amount of flex between the toes to heel. As a result, I have zero foot pain. There is enough cushioning that I have used them for trail running. So far, I have only gone for short 2 and 3 mile hikes and runs with my dog. My trail terrain includes, sand, loose stones, packed dirt and ankle deep weeds. The elevation changes by 100 feet with tight, compact hills. There is never a hint of slippage with the Vibram soles on this trail wet or dry. I absolutely loves this shoe. I normally wear 10.5 wide. That’s the size I got and they fit perfect. I have the Gore-Tex lined shoe. My feet Do not sweat much so I have not experienced the dampness others have complained of. I think the Gore-Tex issue of breath ability is limited to those who simply exhaust moisture from their bodies at a rate which exceeds the performance limits of Gore-Tex. It’s not for everyone. I however, love that these are waterproof. I’m not wading in water but I am in deep weeds and grass at 6 am and the Gore-Tex does its job. I love these shoes! Lastly, they are light. These weigh 14.2 oz each. That’s 2 ounces more than my Hoka Speed Goat 4’s. For a leather shoe, I’d say that’s incredibly light. I love these shoes.
The left boot is normal, and the right one is crooked.Pulls the foot to the left.The feeling that the axis of the shoe does not coincide with the axis of my foot.Before these shoes, I bought the same model only high -great shoes.And these are very uncomfortable and strange.I'm so sad.
Terrific shoes. Very grippy soles with great heal design that cushions impact on heal strike (important if using on paved surfaces) while providing lots of surface area to minimize slippage on downhills with dirt or scrabble. Also very light with good lateral stability. Width was fine for me, but I can see that it might be a problem for those with wider feet. The only drawback for me -- and the reason I returned them -- was that they are cut a little high at the ankle and put pressure on the bottom of my ankle bone. This is a common issue for me, and may not be a problem for others. Instead, I ordered the boot version of these shoes -- so they go over the ankle altogether -- which are great! I did a 5-mile hike up Mount Tam yesterday, and I'm extremely pleased. Five stars to the boots.
Great looking shoe, but unfortunately it runs VERY narrow. As the other reviews say - this model runs small. I ordered a size up and in wide (EE). I have a wide foot, but not an extremely wide foot. The length was fine for me (a half size up), but just too narrow. Perfect for what I need, but had to return and go somewhere else.
