These boots have a neutral fit and therefore, by design, have little to no arch support. They run narrow and would fit a size C width perfectly. I am a size D but find them quite comfy after wearing them indoors for a couple of weeks. These boots hug the feet, are gentle on sensitive ankles, keep debris out as would be expected of any low-cut boot. They are waterproof, have a modest heel to midfoot drop, decent cushioning, and are incredibly light! And, Zappos sells them!

I'd also recommend: I prefer Inov-8, but if I had to purchase a different brand, I would suggest Hoka One One. They are neutral running shoes, not boots, but ultra cushiony with a 4mm drop. Great complement to these boots, but so are the Inov-8 Roclite 295's.

Great traction, waterproof, protective, I woods ran and winter hiked with the 2 pairs I owned. Best ever for me, except....the uppers near the little toe area split open and expose the under layers. Not good, and happens long before the soles are worn at all. That said, I would buy again, if, that area of the shoe is redesigned with better toe cap materials.

I love these shoes, they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. Very functional for hiking or walking around, light & flexible with good traction & waterproof. I worn them to a football game in the torrential rain, my feet stayed warm & dry. I ordered the US women's 7.5 (I usually wear a 7-7.5) they fit fine but I would say they run on the small side. I have a wide foot, these are snug on me. Hope this helps.

These are absolutely the lightest boot I've ever seen in my life. They are super comfortable right out of the box. I think they are maybe a little bit small in sizing so I would order up a size. A wonderful boot...however, it looks like they are not on the makers web site any longer.

These boots are awesome! Super light and comfortable - no break-in required. They have great tread and grip well on loose gravel as well as smooth/steep rock surfaces. Not as much toe cap protection as some heavier hiking boots so these are better for day hikes vs. backpacking trips, etc.
