Excellent shoe but extremely narrow.
- Runs small
I have a slightly narrow foot and was excited to try this shoe based on reports that it might be a good fit. Unfortunately, even after sizing up to a 9.5 from my regular 9, it is so tight as to be difficult to put the shoe on and actually painful after just a few minutes of wear. As stated by the other reviewer, this shoe fits much narrower than other offering in the Mountain Trainer lineup. Only order this version if you are a B-C width. Otherwise, you would have to go up a whole size to get a normal D fit in the width. I was concerned that this would be too long for me. Hence, they are being returned.

Way Different Than the Mountain Trainer
- I returned this product before using it
I've owned four pair of Mountain Trainers (low) and they're the best shoes I've ever used. These are quite a different breed, though. The concept seems good, and if I had a low instep, they might fit. I ordered the same size I've always used and the length was fine, but there's a piece of slightly stretchy material above the tongue and below the laces that doesn't allow the shoe to open up. It was really hard to get my foot in and when I did, there was serious pressure on my instep, even cutting the blood flow off and this was without even lacing the shoe. It's too bad, because I probably would have really liked the shoe otherwise. If the material was stretchier or wider at the instep, they would have worked. I wish I didn't have to give a star rating, since I couldn't use the shoe. Any star rating is invalid. I gave it five stars, because the design, otherwise, and quality deserves it for someone who can use the shoe.
