Here's what others have to say...

Solid and stiff, but...

I bought these looking for a stiff (per my foot doc) trail runner to replace my worn out hiking boot. Out of the box they seem to fit my needs... stiff, waterproof, and they appear to be built solid. But after a few solid hikes it's clear the toe box is too narrow and squeezes my toes together too much.

Hello Kyle,
This happened to me as well but I just went a 1/2 size bigger and that worked very well. Have you tried this?

Is the 14.15oz for the pair or single?

Hello and thanks for the question.
That would be the weight per shoe.

Great Tail Shoe in Wet Conditions

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have bought four, maybe five pairs of these shoes and find them to be top notch. The shoes are lightweight, have durable sticky soles with Gor-Tex liners and fit great. I wear size 45 (11.5 US) have a normal D width. They hold up a lot longer and better than other trail shoes I've tried, both on and off trail, through rough canyons and across granite fields. Merrill and Salomon produce decent alternatives, but they're just not this shoe. I'm also into light and fast gear partially to go longer distances and these shoes provide great stability with or without trekking poles and lightweight packs. The laces are the only part of the shoes that need to break in--to soften up. Otherwise excellent! The mesh keeps the feet pretty cool in warm wet weather and on colder wet days I don't seem to notice them when in motion. As an avid trekker (former climber) and hiker for over 57 years I prefer these to any others I've tried.

Top notch

  • Fit: True to size

As everyone has a different foot ultimately has different shoe comfort preferences, I strongly believe they should at least give the wildcat 2.0 gtx a try. Excellent quality sole and perfect combination between stiffness and comfort. Almost feel nothing while on the trails as you are running over small rocks, twigs, etc... With all that being said, it is gore-tex sir you can bet they are 100% waterproof up to the top of the shoe.

Solid

  • Fit: True to size

I've used this shoe more as a lightweight hiking shoe opposed to a running shoe. I'm on my 2nd pair, first pair last 3 years.

Pros: lightweight, breathable, GTX works great, moderately flexible, grip, comfortable for my wider toe base.
Cons: support (which is a trade-off for the lightweight and flexibility), cushioning, laces - they don't stay tight.

The sole has an amazing amount of grip and lasts a very respectable amount of time. Granted, most of my uses was done on softer surfaces. The sole really protects against rock as well, you're feet won't be bruised unlike some of the minimalist shoes. I've also used them in snow; my feet were cold, but they stayed dry. Overall, these shoes are really versatile. I wouldn't say they do everything outstandingly great, but they do everything well.

Have they fixed the problem with the heel...

Have they fixed the problem with the heel stitching coming apart quickly in this version?

Responded on

They have put a large pull on the back edge of the problem area. Also, the problem seam appears to be a little higher than previous models. Those two things + loosening the laces a bit open up the entry much better.
