I'm a 12.5 foot but I usually to jump up to a 13 as very few companies make 12.5's. I have the regular Mountain Trainer in a size 13 but ended up going down to a size 12 in the Mid version because the Multi-fit footbed allows for an adjustable volume in the boot. I may still end up bumping up to the 13 but between the lacing and the footbed it's cool to see just how customizable they are.

I love both versions of the boot but the Mid feels like it's got a little bit more rocker to the sole and took a second to get used to coming from the low. It also has the PU shock absorber which gives a little extra cushion on your heel and makes longer hikes more comfortable.

The lacing to the toe lets you adjust the fit in the toebox to accommodate swelling feet or clamp it down when you need some extra performance, the tread and sticky rubber inspire confidence and the full rubber rand make sure that they'll last.

All around, this is an awesome boot.

I picked up a pair of last years model at a ski swap and have managed to put a week's worth of skiing into them, including 2 weekends of race camp at Copper Mt. I have ridiculous feet so full-race boots are not an option but these do just fine with no shin bang and plenty of stiffness, even at 6'4 & 220+ lbs. Definitely reccommended, especially if you have a high instep like me.
