Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Needed a light hiker for an 85 mile straight through hike (completed in 35 hours!) Could not afford something heavy or ill-fitting. These shoes totally rocked! Changed socks twice (Smartwool PhD's) and to be honest I never even had to think about how my feet were doing. I purchased 42's and I usually take between an 8.5 and 9. Used the standard insoles which were fine after a brief break in period. Tongue is padded like crazy and you never feel the laces coming through. I have a medium width foot and toe room was great vertically and horizontally. Grip is fantastic. 100% love these shoes!
