Just because this is Arc'teryx' lowest price approach shoe doesn't mean they overlooked any details. The quality is definitely there. Arc'teryx puts a lot of attention to detail into both the design and manufacturing of their shoes and it shows.
In the past I've had success ordering whatever size matched up with a EU 44. However, I ordered an 11 in these and it seems they should work okay with lightweight socks. Even then, they're a bit tight.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this size Hydro Flask. Sometimes my 40 is just to big to want to walk around with and my 20 isn't enough.
It'd be fair to say I have a Hydro Flask obsession, but I'd argue I just like my water to stay cold.
Bonus: the classic screw on lid on this bottle gives me complete peace of mind against spilling but could be swapped out for a flip lid or straw lid if you so desire.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

Patagonia capilene is generally accepted as one of the best synthetic baselayers around. I'd have to agree. Knowing its a patagonia piece adds to the excellence because i know the quality is there and it was produced with thought about sustainability.

You could definitely spend more money and get a fancier shoe with a carbon sole and maybe a more high tec fit system. That being said, these are a great shoe for someone starting out or someone who doesn't want to spend a few hundred dollars on a pair of road shoes. So far my sister I got them for has been very pleased.
