I see several comments about the narrow heel, but nothing about the toe box. I have neuromas in both feet and love the Saucony/Brooks wide toe box- can't get into most other shoes without immediate pain. Any comments? Thanks.

i too have a neuroma in one foot. being a montrail athlete i have a pair of all the trail shoes. i've tried all of them and the hardrock is the best. i think this is because the toe box is wider, the shoe is stiffer and more protective.. and most likely the biggest reason is the protection plate in the sole. this helps protect the neuroma from harsh trail. it's the only shoe i run trail in now as i'm letting my neuroma heal.
