This is the shoe that has changed my life. I have a plethora of foot issues that make shopping for a new pair almost impossible. I was shocked upon putting these on for the first time to not have anything hurt or hit my foot in the wrong way. I'm not sure about the arch support that comes with this shoe as I remove the factory issue and use my own. I marked this as wider then marked because I usually have to get a wide shoe and in this case I didn't - it could just be the magic of this amazing shoe! The foot issues I deal with: Extra bone on right foot, fairly common, lots of people don't know they have them unless discomfort is involved, such as my case. Flat feet. Nerve problems under my big toe (pain when pushing off/too much flex) and on the tops of my feet, this is usually bothered when a shoe laces down on it "wrong". Tailor's bunions, these are on the outside of the foot. And lastly heel spurs. Anyway, these are the best shoes in the world for me, I bought 3 pair and might spring for more if they go on sale.

We live in the Northwest and are very familiar with the Patagonia products which are usually excellent. The shoes...I tried different socks etc. they are just uncomfortable. They are very cute! But, would not be able to wear them on any kind of long walk or hike.

I hike professionally at Grand Canyon. I'm always looking for shoes that are lightweight and breathable, yet sturdy. These almost fit the bill but after about 9 months of regular use the webbing in the lacing system broke on one shoe. The other shoe broke a month later. This may be in part because I cinch the laces tightly for the long, steep downhill terrain here. I would give these shoes an excellent rating if it weren't for this significant flaw. The rest of the shoe has held up well but the webbing is far too flimsy.

Love these! I'm on my feet all day, and these shoes are great! I had always worn Merrells, but they just aren't made as well as they were before. It took a lot of searching and trying, but Zappos, as always, was so great to work with me! Happy customer!!

I love these shoes. I work in them all day long and they are the only shoes I have found that keep my feet comfortable. I can also fit my custom orthotic which is a bonus.

Love these shoes. Great hiking shoes that feels light as a sneaker but with lots of support. I have a really wide foot and narrow heel and these work perfectly for me.

My wife and I each bought a pair of these - and we LOVE them! They are a bit heavier than many hiking shoes on the market, but they don't feel awkward or clumsy. The sole has what I can only describe as a 'rockered' feel to it - almost like the thickness decreases closer to the toe so that they don't have that clompy clown shoe feel. Whatever it is - it's great! Mine developed a tear right out of the box, which was really a bummer. Patagonia replaced them without any drama whatsoever - amazing customer service! This is her first pair of Pataguccis - and likely not her last!

I'd also recommend: Lowa, North Face
