I was new to this brand when I decided to buy these shoes, based on research that told me they fit like other running shoes I've worn for years (Asics GT 2100 series and Asics Gel Kayano). I got these because I wanted to run trails. I absolutely love them. I wore them on a six mile trail run first day with no chafing or anything and have continued to love pretty much everything about them. They are incredibly comfortable, super cute - highly recommend. Only negative I found was that the mesh over my big toe wore down and tore way before the shoes were ready to be retired. They were still wearable, but it was annoying to look at. Still, I'm buying them again.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect running shoe. I live on the Oregon coast and do most of my running on the beach, so I need a shoe that can handle both road and trail-like conditions. However, I have a very hard to fit foot: the overall shape is short and wide, with a narrow heel, and I moderately pronate (ankles rotate so too much weight is on the arch). Yeah, nearly impossible to find a good athletic shoe! This one is so close! The support is amazing and my stride has never felt so fluid! The only thing is my heel did try to slip up/out when I ran around the house. I'm going to give the Pearl Izumi Em Trail N 1 to see if is any better with this issue. Oh, did also want to mention that it ran pretty small! Normal street shoes I wear a 7.5 but usually get an 8 for running so there's more room, this one I needed an 8.5!

These shoes are very cute in person and very comfortable in person, but unfortunately they didn't agree with my feet. I had a little pain in the top of my foot and lower ankle after doing more walking in the house. Sadly I had to return them.

This all-round great trail shoe! Every time I have worn them I ended up running twice the milage I intended because I didn't want to stop. The grip is great for varied trail and not too knobby for the road if you need to run to a trailhead, this is so rare to find a shoe that comfortably does both. They are seamless and you forget that you are wearing them. The width of the forefoot is great for a normal to slightly wider foot, if you are wider than a D you might want to check out the men's shoe which is slightly roomier. I have a high arch and usually buy a Neutral shoe but I have ran in both the N2 and the M2 and find them to be pretty similar but slightly prefer the bit of extra reinforcement around my instep in the M2. I ran in Brooks Cascadia for many years until they started making them so narrow, the Em Trail is similar although a much lighter more comfortable. The only con is the tread will gum up in sticky mud.

I'd also recommend: Brooks Cascadia

Love the shoes which run about one size small. Zappos delivered them on time and followed up with a easy return and delivery of the larger size shoes.
