I was very pleasantly surprised at how well they fit right out of the box. I took them to the treadmill to break in and expected some rubbing or break-in issues - I had none. They fit very true to size and are very grippy. I have used them for a couple light afternoon hikes and a couple times on my mountain bike. They grab the mountain bike pedals very well - even when wet/muddy. No issues on the hikes. Overall, a good shoe at the regular price and a great shoe for the money if you can catch them on sale.
