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 highly recommend Ahnu Montara II. I have difficult feet: size 11, high arches, wide forefoot, medium to narrow heel, and my right foot and knee have been injured several times and require excellent support even more than my left. I need anatomical footbeds because I'm on my feet many hours each day. Ahnu Montara II is one of the best shoes I've ever worn right out of the box, and I don't need to change to my orthotics. The footbed is wonderfully comfortable for me. I can wear them all day and still feel great at the end of the day, and I rarely say that about my shoes. They eliminate ankle, knee, and back problems for me. I feel that my foot was used as the model for making this shoe. The only thing that would improve them is larger sizes: 11.5 and larger because they are just barely long enough. I can wear only thin socks or no socks with them. If my feet swell by evening, then they feel too tight, and I switch to Ahnu Sugarpine Air Mesh which runs slightly longer/larger in size 11 or to my Vionic Tide II sandals. The style of Montara II is very cute, and size 11 doesn't look huge. I like the lacing system. The final metal hooks at the top allow quick, tight lacing.

I'd also recommend: Vionic, Asics

I bought these shoes to take on a trip to Europe. I thought they would be a good match since there was a lot of walking. How I was wrong. I have tried to break them in for the past ten months, to no avail. It is sad that for the amount of money spent on these shoes, they are not very comfortable.

I previously purchased the Montara boot and was so pleased, I ordered these. Comfortable right out of the box, no blisters and even with wet and muddy conditions, both styles shed the debris and stay dry inside. Comfort, function, and they even LOOK great! Love the colors. Might have to get another pair. :)

I'd also recommend: keen, chaco, brooks

I found this shoe oddly tight across the top of the toes and the top of the foot, even in the larger of the two sizes that I ordered. My foot is small, flat and bony so I usually have the opposite problem. At the same time, the shoe is loose around the collar and I get a fair amount of heel slippage. I wish the fit were better for me, because this is a really good looking and well made walking shoe.

I love the look of this shoe, but sadly the comfort was not there for me. I have high arches and these shoes rubbed the top of my foot. The tongue seems short and it was not comfortable for me. The other issue with this shoe was the lacing...the metal grommets were slippery, making the shoe difficult to lace tightly. I really wanted this shoe to work for me because it is stylish and well made, but I had to return it.
