Was looking for something ultra-lightweight to layer over my running gear in the event of wind. This is it! I am 5'11, 182 lbs. Initially ordered the size "L" and it was uncomfortably tight - definitely too small to wear over a lightweight running fleece or longsleeve running shirt. Subsequently ordered the "XL" and it is PERFECT for its intended use. I am not sure about the durability as I haven't worn it a lot yet, but at $39.00 it's hard to get too worried about it. Definitely recommened if you are looking for a windbreaker to use on the go!

Good looking shoe with a nice "feel" on the foot. Large/roomy toebox may take some getting used to. Not much forefoot cushioning - especially if running a trail with lots of small/sharp rabble: expect frequent "stingers." Sole grip is awesome - no slip. Would expect these to perform very well on broad/flatter stone surfaces - even in wet conditions

I have SO many problems finding the right size running shoe! I wear a US 10 in the Mizuno Wave Rider, Columbia Ravenous, Montrail Mountain Masochist. ALL three of those call a US 10 a EURO 44. EURO 44 was WAY too big in the LaSportiva Fireblade. I downsized to a 43.5 and the shoe is STILL a little too big, but I'll make it work. Just the slightest bit of heel slip... Wish I'd tried the 43.

All in all, can't beat the shoe for the price - but they wouldn't be worth paying full retail.
