Mick Sutliffwrote a review of Garmont Dragontail Lite Shoe - Men's on October 9, 2013
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I'm not a climber, but I bought these to use as light hikers and boy do the perform. I love that I can really dial in the fit with the lace to toe. Combine that with the heel lock system and you have one incredibly snug comfy fit. The rand around the shoe has held up well and shows no signs of slowing down. I knocked one star off because the cloth lacing loop (second from top) makes me a little nervous. It's part of the heel lock system and I fear that it would be the first part of the shoe to fail. Though after 5 months of almost daily use (hiking, dog walking, short overnight backpacking trips) it has yet to break. If/when it does will I buy another pair? Absolutely.
For reference, I hike the foothills of the Wasatch and all over The Swell in south central Utah. The approach style of this shoe lends well to scrambling around the sandstone and granite of these two areas. I wear a size 10.5 in Merrell and Patagonia and that is what I ordered these in.
