Made for Wide Feet

I was recently in search of a replacement for my old approach shoe. I am a fan of Five Ten so I though I would give this shoe a try.

Pros:
- Super sticky rubber
- Durable construction

Cons:
- Heavy/bulky
- Very wide last

I ended up returning them because they didn't fit my foot shape at all. I have a narrow heal so while the forefoot was great, even with the laces cinched as tight as possible, my heal slid around a lot.

I think this would have been a solid shoe aside from how it fit my foot. It is still a bit heavier than I would have wanted though, so if I were to rate it without considering fit, I would have given four stars.

In the end I went with the La Sportiva Fireblade (http://www.backcountry.com/la-sportiva-fireblade-trail-running-shoe-mens). Technically a trail runner, but super light with very good traction.
