BLUF: Incredible shoes, stock up if you can!
I have used these shoes for runs on varying terrain and weather, down pours in the Eastern Mountains, 100* days in the Western deserts, snowy runs in the foothills of the Rockys.
I find them best suited to dirt and rock trails, pavement is fine but downhill pavement hurt. On the trails these have become a favorite of mine, decent protection from sharp rocks and roots, adequate cushioning for beatdown runs. Marvelous flexibility and low weight. They have excellent traction and dry rather quickly. I used my last pair for the first two days of a marvelous stage race in New Hampshire and would have used them the last day had I not torn the fabric so much during the previous several hundred miles of training and races. My longest runs in these shoes have been up to 30 miles and I will likely use them for my next 50 mile race and any 24 hours races I do this year.
The time to become accustomed to the arch in these shoes was simply running a few shorter runs (10 miles or less), these shoes can become your foot's best friend.
I just ordered 3 more pair, as sadly Patagonia is supposed leaving our feet to risk searching for another brand of shoes that may not serve us as well?

Personally, I am a fan of shoes like this with a supportive arch. If you like the brooks pure connect or the old montrail shoes like the vitesse, then you will like these shoes. This shoe fits my feet really well and the midsole is stiff and low to the ground, but it has enough cushion to protect from rocks and stuff. I was running in the merrell trail gloves, but every now and then I would bruise my heel on a random rock. These have been working great for me, but if you like a flat insole, then get some New Balance minimus or something else.
Great Fit! Weird Arch Position.

I wanted to love this shoe. It has everything I want in a nimble trail runner. Wide toe box to allow the toes to spread, snug heel and midfoot to ensure an awesome glovelike fit, low drop for a midfoot strike, ample protection in the outsole and midsole for shock and sharp rock absorption, lots of breathability, light weight, good tread design, decent looks. Unfortunately, the arch is either really long or placed very far forward. I felt like I had half a golf ball lodged just behind the inside of the ball of my big foot. Over the long haul this would have created a huge blister. Odd because having such a significant arch is out of character for this style of shoe in the first place. I have a high arch, so I wouldn't mind it if it was in the right spot. I watched another person try on this shoe and they provided the exact same feedback immediately without my prompting. The problem could also be that the shoe begins to cut in from the wide toe box too early and too drastically. I'm a smallish, narrowish 13 and these shoes fit absolutely perfectly other than the arch issue.

Because we all know that feeling when you hit your stride at 60 miles right?
