Olav Johnsen's Bio

the outdoors, what an adrenaline rush waiting to happen. from walking, hiking, backpacking and running, there is that urge of not caring about the life in the city; it is just you and nature. the definition of relaxation to me is the pain you gain from pushing yourself further, mentally and physically.

Great concept, horrible details

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small

I wanted to love these shoes, the lining on this is superb and comfy and makes you feel like you're walking on cloud 9 with the anatomical footbed.
The major flaw is the cheap construction and asain fit.
By that, I mean these shoes are narrow and have zero room in the toe box. So when your feet need to splay and naturally swell, there is no place for them to go. So much so that the shoe started to loose it's seems and glue because of which. See photo.
My trial for these shoes was two days, yes two measly days of walking around my house and doing simple tasks like chores and such. Basically standing, squatting, crouching, and crawling about.
I did my research and have tried a different pair on in a store but I will most likely never purchase this brand because of the overall construction with all of it flaws.

*update*
if someone can tell me how to upload a picture i'd love to post one !

These shoes make me want to run !
There are subtle designs that make these shoes awesome and durable, like the rubber overlays, extra stitching and ergonomic fit (basically like a hug around your feet). I usually have to wear orthotics to help with my pronation but not with trekSta. My only gripe with these shoes is the outsole, not too sure on how long they will last and the shoelaces are just garbage.
