These have a substantial, heavier sole. Roomy toe box. The lining feels very silky and luxurious and shoe is nicely cushioned inside. The heel might be a solution for some with narrow heel slipping issues (like me). The provided insole was a little more substantial than the average (but still minimal arch/heel support). The heel is some combination of higher rise and/or curving in more than average. For me, this seemed to be OK on my smaller foot (size 10), but it cut in and was very uncomfortable on my slightly larger foot (size 10¼?). My heel still slipped in both shoes, but less so than in every other low hiker that I have tried on in the last year (which is probably over 15), except for Lowas (which are too narrow at the forefoot on me). I tried these on with provided insoles and two other more rigid/supportive ones, and results were similar. The tongue of this shoe is weirdly shorter than normal. The bow sits only about ¼" from the end. I did not like the lacing system. The eyelets are wide and metal, and do not grip the laces at all, so the overall tightness depends totally on the final tug before you tie the bow. Overall, these are more like walking shoes than hiking shoes. I returned them.

This is not a size 8! I ordered 2 pairs of Ahnu shoes, same size, different style, and the other one feels good almost too big, this one I can barely put my foot in it! Nice style though, too bad.

I work in wine production, and my light brown Chacos were nearing the end of their life when I saw these. Waterproof shoes that will not show wine stains!? I am sold! When I first got them the size 6 was a little tight on my wideish feet, but they stretched out nicely with just a few weeks of light wear and thin socks. I was probably the only one who did not get wet feet during the 2013 harvest season at my winery because of these shoes, so the water proofing is legit. After two years of dedicated work wear, the rubber is starting to separate from the leather upper, allowing water to seap in. Nothing some shoe-goe probably could not fix, but alas I have switched jobs and now require safety-toed shoes. When these started to get a little too grungy to wear outside of work, I got a pair of the Sugarpine shoes and they are even better (no tightness even on day one), and just as waterproof.

I tried these shoes because I wanted something for every day / light hiking other than sneakers. Based on previous experience with Ahnu, I tried both 10 (my usual size) and 10 1/2. The 10 1/2 fit best, as expected. Width is great, even after the addition of a thicker sock. My heel did not slip, which is a common problem for me. I have concerns about my ankle bones contact the top of the shoe in spite of the cutouts. Could be resolved with a more substantial insert (the one it comes with is just a liner, offers no additional support). I also have a concern about the amount of flex and give under the forefoot + my high arch. It feels like it might break down too fast and aggravate plantar fascia. Again, could be resolved with a more substantial insert with extra support there. I got them in Nightshade, which is a great purple color.

I tried these on at Nordstrom Rack in a size 7, which is my regular shoe size. However, I generally need a 7 1/2 in athletic shoes. My toes came right to the edge of the 7, and they didn't have a 7 1/2, which was sad because they were on sale there. I ordered the 7 1/2 from Zappos (full price), and while they fit, the brown was a completely different color than the pair I had tried on previously. I suspect the pair at Nordstrom Rack were last season's model as the brown was much richer, and this is a very blah brown. I haven't decided yet if I'll keep them or exchange them for a better color. Overall though, they are comfortable and they're the best looking hiking type shoe I've seen.

I bought these shoes to walk my dog in the winter and they are great. They keep my feet warm and they were comfortable right out of the box. I have a very high arch and the arch support is fantastic - no need for extra arch support. I took everyone's advice and ordered half a size up from what I normally wear and they fit perfect.

I'm delighted with this shoe, it's everything I wanted and purple too! After trying several waterproof walking/hiking boots I've found that this is the only one that flexes adequately and has good support with a toebox that isn't going to give me problems down the line, i.e. it's wide enough - and the heel is just right too, not wide. I bought it for working on my farm this winter but can't seem to give it up as a town shoe with jeans and a cashmere sweater. Think it's time to buy another pair and put them to work on the farm!
