Just got these a few days ago. Hiked about 3 miles today. Comfortable immediately. True to size. I have a narrower foot and they are a perfect fit. No need to break in. Very light and breathable. Great traction system. Great cushion system. Lacing system is quick and easy too. Since they are an Italian company the only thing I wish is that they were made in Italy. They are made in China. But, none the less, extremely solid quality. Looking forward to my trip out West knowing that I will have comfy feet trecking through Canyon Lands, Havasu and Tahoe. (I've added a picture of the inside of the shoe so you can see that angle). At this price it seems like a "no brainer".
