JAMES N.wrote a review of Salewa Firetail Hiking Shoe - Men's on September 3, 2012
Very nice shoe, particularly for narrow feet with high arch. People have noted they should get a size larger. My running shoes are 10.5 (1 size larger) and got 10.5 but think I could have gone with 10's. Just a little extra length in the toe (toe box is snug the way I like it) so no chance of banging my toes on descents.
Note: These shoe are NOT water proof and do not drain quickly. However they are still very good when wet due to the unique two piece insole.
Very sticky on rock ... fine gravel and sand will find a little slippage ... you don't have big lugs to dig into this junk.
Quick and light (relatively speaking). Not a lot of cushioning in the toe are but the sure footing and agility make up for it on long descents.
