These are the most versatile shoes I have ever owned: sticky rubber for climbing approaches and sticking to my bike platform pedals, light weight with minimal drop for hours of trail running, and just enough rock protection for off-trail lightweight backpacking in the high Sierra. Do not get these if you want a bunch of arch support and padding. My only complaint is that they wear out faster than most approach or running shoes that I have owned. But I suppose that comes with the light weight. I love these shoes, and I just bought my fourth pair. I think they run about half a size smaller than other Patagonia running shoes, but similar to Salomon.

I really like the look/style of these shoes. Unfortunately, they were very uncomfortable. Fortunately, Zappos has an excellent return policy. The shoes made me feel like my feet were tilted to the inside with no arch support. I have normal feet with no arch issues. Patagonia makes excellent products, but these were the first pair of Patagonia shoes that I've tried. Instead of these, I recommend Salomons. I've had no less than 15 pair of Salomons in the past decade. They are comfortable and long lasting.

Great shoe. Very low profile around the ankle. And this is a summertime shoe. I wore it over the holidays in CO and my feet were not warm. But that was my mistake. This shoe is also extremely lightweight. So that's good.

I'd also recommend: New Balance

I love these shoes. I ordered them because I was looking for a low-drop approach shoe to use for easy climbing and long days in the mountains or at the crag. And they are great for that. But I have been surprised by how much I like running in them. They're pretty minimal, with little support and a 4mm drop. There's an unobtrusive but effective rock plate in the forefoot. They can be loosened up in the toe box to allow your foot to splay or tightened down for climbing. They're basically all I run in these days (my previous shoes were Inov-8 245). Now I wear them to work, traveling and out and about. They're just very comfortable and functional. I really hope Patagonia keeps making them and doesn't mess with the recipe. One gripe. The sole tends to delaminate from the rand. But this was easily rectified with a little Barge cement. After that, no problems and they've been otherwise very durable.

Best shoe I've ever owned if only it was a bit more durable. It does everything and it's super light. Fairly minimalist support, with not a lot of sole protection, but if you're used to barefoot style running, no problem. Handles talus, easy 5th class, light mud. Watch out for hand cracks as the laces and eyelets are not very abrasion resistant. Very well ventilated and fast drying. Abridged Rover Resume in the last 6 months: -Kalalau Trail run (Kauai) -Mona Loa "trail" run (Hawaii) -Tenaya Canyon up and down run/scramble/climb/swim (Yosemite) -Fully loaded off trail backpacking in the high Sierra (SEKI) -Multiple 3rd/4th class sierra scrambles. Don't get this if you don't want an ultralight minimally supportive shoe. Runs 1/2 size smaller than other Patagonia running shoes, but similar to Salomon and La Sportiva. Buying my second pair now.
