Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I got these when I needed a back-up shoe while my other pair were getting resoled. That was a year ago and I've worn my original pair twice since. These shoes are awesome. I got them really tight (I'm a US street size 8 and got these in a 38.5) and tried to break them in in the Uintas. While that was one of the most painful foot moments of my life save the injury that caused me to get foot surgery, I'm really glad I listened to my boyfriend and stuck with breaking them in.
The padding on this show is great, and if purchased in one's street size, these would probably be a good beginner shoe. Getting these tighter has helped me break solidly into intermediate in the gym and has also been great the few times I've gone outside. If you're comfortable with being uncomfortable, this is a great shoe. It's doesn't stretch much, but the suede upper has a little give that has formed to my crunched toes, making them much more comfortable and less of a medieval torture device than they were initially.
