These are great shoes! I usually wear a size 7. I already have a pair of these shoes in brown in a size 7 that are a bit tight, so I ordered these in a 7. This size fits well. I can take out the insole and place my orthotics in these shoes, good traction without tracking mud and rocks into the house.

Pros: Very cute, super comfortable and really lightweight Cons: These shoes slip on wet surfaces, especially painted concrete (like the stripes on pavement, etc.). When I walk on wet granite or marble walkways, I always walk very gingerly because the shoes don't seem to grasp these surfaces well. For this, I would not recommend the shoes, which is a shame since they are so comfortable for walking and don't weigh down your backpack.

I first saw these shoes (in blue) on a girlfriend and thought how cute they looked. I ordered a pair in my size (ahem, women's 12/men's 11) and was dismayed, as usual, with how big they looked. Definitely not "cute" but the comfort more than made up for that. I have narrow feet and love how they lace down toward the toe for a really snug fit. I added a pair of Smart Feet for my high arches and plan to wear these shoes on vacation where I will be walking and biking but want a shoe that's a bit more "presentable" than my ratty outdoor shoes. The color isn't really "lime" but a very nice, soft mossy color.

Bought these for a trip to Colorado. They are awesome and the color is beautiful. Very comfortable, lightweight, flexible yet sturdy and very grippy on the slippery rocks at the waterfalls. Love them!

Always have trouble finding a shoe with support but looks good. These accomplished both-they have a great support and held my orthotics perfectly and the color was great. They are dressier than a regular athletic shoe. As usual Zappos delivered right on time so I am very please with my purchase!

I loved the look and color but the back dug into my heel. Too bad - they are going back.

Lightweight & great! Solid design comfortable for a day of chores & a good hike. They include a varied foot support options. Add or take away these insoles. My shoes fit perfect because of these choices. The toe shield is awesome! Stub your toe and feel no pain. NICE! My extreme highlight is for the heel loop. This is not your average heel loop. Love it! Extra large to pull your foot in with ease and without getting your finger stuck. Nice Touch GoLite, thanks. Refreshing modern color of light gray finishes off this stylish all terrain shoe. Happy Hiking!

I love this shoe! It's lightweight and comfortable, gives great support. I wear them at work every day. Be sure you pay attention to sizing...they are sized small. I had to go up a half size from my regular size in order to get the proper fit. Zappos shipping unbelievably fast!

These shoes are comfortable and look good, though I'd like them available in more colors, preferably ones that are slightly more neutral, too (I bought mine in the gray/lime green, which seemed less non-neutral than the purple ones). A lot of reviews have commented how great the shoes are on slippery surfaces, including ice. I bought these in part because of those comments and the comment from Zappos or the manufacturer stating the same. Not sure if my pair are problematic or what but I took 1 step on a wet but flat rock surface and went sliding all over the place with that and each subsequent step. Unfortunately, I am going to have to send these back as a result. I might try another pair, though, to see if maybe there is just something with the specific pair I got -- other than this one issue, they are very comfortable.

Love these shoes! Really wanted to try a pair of zero drop shoes as I have issues with shoes occasionally. I did have to return and order a 1/2 up. Wish they came in additional colors as I am not a huge fan of flashiness on my feet. Will order again.

Love the shoe built well except back of shoe rubbed heels raw the first hour of wearing them. Otherwise fit well with great support. Go lite please put more padding around heel of shoe. Nice colors also.

I ordered and received a size 7 GoLite shoe. The shoes had obviously been returned before. NO INSOLES were included in the box. This is the selling point of these shoes. No instructions. I happened to have purchased these shoes before and have the insoles I need. Will not go through the hassle of returning these. I would suppose that someone who has never ordered this brand of shoe before would have been disappointed in the fit since the insoles were missing.

Ordered these for a trip to London and Iceland. Felt amazing right out of the box. I am a woman, and I ordered men's size 7.5. Perfect! The adjustable insole is pretty cool, although mine only came with one extra pad (the one for narrow feet). I took it out and was happy with the room in the toe box. But if you wear thin socks you can add a pad if you want. These were great for walking in the city as well as running around Iceland, walking on gravel trails and climbing over rocks. The outsole is great, and really does connect to the ground well. The only thing I noticed is that they are slippery on very slick wet surfaces, such as tile floors. But for outdoor activities they were amazing and I will order more.

I am picky about my shoes, kind of like the Princess & the Pea. I've tried on at least a dozen pairs of shoes trying to find a pair that were comfortable and would work for running, workouts, or hiking. I didn't want anything too heavy, I didn't want neon, and I wanted something with decent arch support. These shoes are awesome. I wore them on a recent vacation and I actually forgot I was wearing brand new shoes. Every day, after hiking or walking all day, I would remember that I was wearing new shoes and be amazed that my feet didn't hurt or feel tired. Bravo! As far as fit goes, I found them true to size but traded my regular size to go a half-size up so I could get more space in the toes, since I was going to be hiking up and down hills. I had to put the narrow insole but that worked great. I love the color and it goes great with jeans. Also, in spite of heavy use, they seemed to shed dirt and never looked dirty. I may buy another pair so that I have a spare.

Really wanted to like these but no matter what I did, I could not even get these shoes on. Not sure of the most accurate term for the location but the space from the bottom of the foot to the top was way too tight/short (?) in the toes. Back they go, unfortunately. I also bought the Neon Lite by the same company and they are much easier to put on and in my opinion also much better looking.

I bought these because they look really cool, to my surprise, they are very comfortable! They are good for hiking trails and provide great support and cushion on the joints when running also. I made a mistake and order a half size up though. My suggestion is you buy your true size. Will buy another pair in my correct size soon.

This was my sixth pair of GoLite shoes and my second pair of Spot Lites. I'll never order another pair. The shoes were the same style and color as the pair before, but the fabric, the cut, and the fit had changed. Previously I could buy GoLites and wear them on long walks without any breaking in period. These continued to hurt and have pressure points in odd places for a month after I got them. I tried tightening the laces, loosening them, putting the narrow shoe adjustment under my orthotics, but nothing helped. The inside sole didn't feel flat and they just plain hurt. I'm now dealing with tendinitis which I believe came from the terrible fit of the shoe and my mistaken belief that they would eventually adjust and I'd be as happy with them as I had been with my other GoLites. I also ordered another pair of Lava Lites (my fourth pair) from a different company and had the same problems with them. Clearly, GoLites are not what they once were.

This is my first zero drop design shoe. Out of the box they feel like a day hiker with a stiff toe box and heel. I took advice from others and ordered a 7 (my normal size is a 6.5) and they are perfect. Love the traction on the bottom and how stable they make me feel. They feel "odd" at first but once you get used to them they are awesome! So comfortable I can walk for miles in them. I have not tried them on a hike yet but they are going with me to Malaysia for some hot weather hiking.

Great shoes! The one thing that did take me by surprise was the fact that I had to break these shoes in...this is the first pair that I have had to do that with in year. Once I did though they are extremely comfortable. Overall I love the tread pattern; however, there have been some surfaces where the material that they used for the sole is very slick in wet conditions (on tile, etc.). Overall a great buy!

This is the best serious walking shoe I've found that doesn't get too far into heavy hiking-boot territory. I wanted something that would stabilize and support my aging feet and still look somewhat zippy, and this appears to be it. I am looking forward to giving it a serious workout in the concrete jungles of Mexico City.

These are great walking or light hiking shoes. Very comfortable with good support without looking clunky. I bought them primarily for golf and have received compliments. They do run small. After two tries, I decided on a whole size larger which works fine for me, especially in hot weather.
