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 boots. Absolutely love. The other reviewers are right, they definitely run a bit small width wise. If you have wide feet, I'd order a half size or whole size up. Luckily, Zappos is good about returns if you need to swap. Just about the most comfortable boots I've ever worn. I got them to take to Iceland this May, since I know the rain can get pretty bad. Hopefully the Gore-Tex liner holds up as well as it should. Seriously though, these are some comfy boots. Stylish, too.

These shoes are amazing! I run in barefoot shoes, and was having a very hard time finding a comfortable hiking shoe (probably because I wasn't used to so much structure around my foot). These shoes do provide traction and grip without feeling clunky. My ankles feel supported. I haven't had them long enough to say anything about durability, but so far I'm very pleased. I was worried they would be too narrow, and at first I thought they were, but after completely relacing them, I don't find them to be narrow at all. However, the toe-box is much narrower than my running shoes. Overall I'm very pleased, and as long as they continue to hold up I'll be happy!

I'd also recommend: merrell barefoot

These. Are. Narrow. Plain and simple. I bought these for a hiking trip to King's Canyon this summer and wanted something familiar, light and waterproof. I love the innov-8 shoes I use for CrossFit and for Mud Runs so when I realized they made an all-terrian shoe with GoreTex I was sold. Being confident in the fit, being so similar to my other shoes, I ignored all of the reviews saying this shoe was narrow...but did buy a pair 1/2 size larger hoping to accommodate thicker socks. Even with just liner socks, they are still very narrow. It's almost as if they didn't account for the extra thickness of the GoreTex layer. This being my 5th or 6th pair of Innov-8 shoes, is the first I'm disappointed in. They are bearable for maybe a mile or even 2 but no more. Just too narrow toward the ball of the foot. Quality and build are great but not if I can't fit into the shoe. I thought they might stretch as most Innov-8s do, but not with the GoreTex layer. I wish I'd returned these before getting them wet and muddy.
