The fit was great, but the sides ripped! It's a shame because I really liked the look and the fit of these shoes. I wear 12W and they felt great, but after a couple months and not more than ten wears, the fabric by the little toe started to wear and ultimately there's a hole now. Will have to return.

I want to love these shoes! However, there are some issues to be aware of: 1) they are not durable for trail running. The sides wear out near your small toe after minimal use and the foam does tear. 2) they run small and the toe box is a touch pointy (it does stretch to fit). 3) They have no grip in wet conditions. I mean, not even on asphalt! Having said all of that, there are a lot to love about this shoe. The foam is supportive without feeling bouncy. They are super cool looking and very comfortable. They perform well in dry, rocky conditions but as I said, will shred on the sides and the foam will rip.

There is some design element on the top of the shoe that pushes down directly on the big toe. I don't know if it's there to provide structure to the shoe or if it's for aesthetics. I'm thinking I'd lose a toe nail if I wore these out running. The shoe is otherwise very comfortable. I was looking for a shoe that had good arch support and to help correct my supination. If it weren't for that toe problem I would keep them.

I have narrow heels, high arches, and one foot with a bunion. I wear these exclusively for workouts with trainer. Perfect fit from the start. Great support.
