So these broke in quite quick - I did 100miles in the Sierras with only 25 miles on the shoes beforehand. Not a single blister even with a few 20 mile days. The downside for me is that they are normal width, to a touch wide. For my narrow foot, a higher volume shoe. I 'think' I was able to fix this with an extra insert, but I haven't used them enough with this addition to tell. Gore-tex is superb: did a several creek crossings with no issue. For how lightweight they are, they still seem quite rigid and solid. They also have a touch of a sneaker type feel -- I actually jogged 7 miles of my trip in these and they felt fine. I'm just hoping my extra inserts work -- I was having my toe slide to the toebox on downhills without them:(... which resulted in a numb great toe.

So, I'd highly recommend for anyone who has a normal to wide foot. If you're foot's narrow like me, you may want to check out something else -- including women's boots. If anyone has a great recommendation on narrow boots, let me know.

Hi Bil,

Im not sure if this is too late, but I have a wide foot and I've tried several boots that made me wish I had a narrow foot. One of them made by Scarpa, a C width boot, appears to excel in almost any condition and is called the Kailash. I've only done reading as I was never able to take them out thanks to the width (their wide is still only a D width). Also, Asolo makes the Power Matic 200GV which I tried using for a while, but was still too narrow and ended up selling. The Asolo is an all leather boot, but very very nice with solid construction and a unique lacing system.
