The shoe is incredibly comfortable right out of the box, except for one huge issue. The end of the tongue digs into the front of your ankle. Without any tongue padding, there is nothing you can do to improve this. I tried unlacing the first hole, but that made the shoe sloppy fitting at the heel. The foot bed feels great; the toe box is plenty big enough. I love that the lacing goes down to the toe (which prevents issues with seams rubbing on my bunions). I love that the shoe doesn't have a high heel. I love the grip of the rubber. Both my husband and I would have bought this one if only for the tongue issue. Sadly, it negated all the other wonderful features of the excellent shoe.

Great pair of shoes, better than my Keen, Ecco and Merrell. very comfortable for walking and does not need the regular break-ins. I'd buy another one if they have more styles.

Really nice sharp looking shoe. Very comfortable. Lightweight. One minor issue is there isn't much air flow, but your feet don't sweat. 4.5 stars.

Extremely comfortable with a great fit, appreciate the extra room in the toe area. Nice style as well, the shoe looks better in person than in pictures. Only a few hot spots after a full day wear but I'm attributing that to subpar socks. First GoLite, would buy this brand again.

Heel rides up too far and as others have reviewed they dig into the ankle area. They do accommodate orthotics well.

GoLite claims that the Lime Light and some of their other shoes are adaptable to fit a range of different foot widths from narrow to wide. Speaking as a guy with narrow (B/C width) feet, I'm here to tell you this is mostly false. The actuality is that for narrow width feet you don't actually address the main problem of getting a secure fit without changing the actual lateral width of the shoe. GoLite's solution for narrow width feet (and that of shoe store sales people) is to double up on the insoles. This does little to address the main problem and usually just creates a couple more. The main problem narrow footed people have is that the foot slides around in the shoe side to side, forward, backward. Adding an extra layer of insole does little to reduce the lateral movement of the foot in the shoe. Most of the time the only thing the extra layer accomplishes is creating more pressure points on the top of the foot from your foot being crammed against tongue seams or eyelets. And often the big toe is pressed downward in an unnatural way. In the case of the Lime Lite there's plenty of toe room, but for me the tongue of the shoe doesn't have enough padding, especially near the top. Also the tongue is too short. In my opinion it needs to extend up another 1/2" so it doesn't dig into the top of your foot at the shoe opening. I'm actually debating whether or not to keep the shoes. If I do I can't actually wear them with confidence as they were intended (on uneven natural terrain) for fear of instability due to loose fit. "Oh just wear extra thick socks." Yeah, right. What do I do when its above 40 degrees? I have given up on ever seeing the real solution to my perpetual footwear dilemma. Shoe manufacturers are only interested in catering to the masses who have D, E, EE, EEE, and EEEE width feet. To make an actual B or C width width would just be wimpy I guess, in their way of thinking. I am so fed up with not having any shoes that fit properly that I would actually pay double and special order shoes if that were even an option. The selection of shoes offered in a true B or C width is pitiful, and usually not in a style or even type I want. Okay, enough of my rant. No shoe company will ever take this seriously anyway. The bottom line on this shoe is if your foot width is D to E (or possibly wider - I really can't say) go for it! While you're at it you have thousands of other choices here as well. The Lime Lite appears to be fairly well constructed and should have excellent traction in mud. And if I keep the shoes it will appear that I am sure footed and ready to hit the trail. That's all I can really say about being in the Lime Lite. Oh yeah, Zappos is the best shoe store anywhere...period. I should know. I try a lot of shoes. Good luck!

The GoLite quality does not match the price it's selling for. These shoes are in the same price class as Hi Tec and Merrell but it is not a similar quality.

These are great shoes. These were my main shoes and I wore almost every day for a year. I wore them in a variety of conditions but mostly they were worn in an urban environment, year round weather. I am only replacing them because I wore the tread smooth. The tops still good.

These are great shoes. Size was just right and the fit and feel were great right from the beginning. They are also very good looking shoes. I wear them as everyday shoes, for walking around town and such. My feet don't tire or fatigue, they are extremely comfortable and seem to be very well made.

I just hiked all over Bryce & Zion Canyons in these shoes. I loved them. My feet are wide, so I had to return the women's version & go for the men's, but the orange in the men's is prettier anyway & the fit is great.

After all the shoes that I've tried, the ones that always fit my feet the best are Keen Portsmouth -- I have four pairs -- and nothing has felt so comfortable at them. If all companies were as fast, courteous, and accommodating as Zappos, our economy would be in excellent shape.

I first saw these shoes (in blue) on a girlfriend and thought how cute they looked. I ordered a pair in my size (ahem, women's 12/men's 11) and was dismayed, as usual, with how big they looked. Definitely not "cute" but the comfort more than made up for that. I have narrow feet and love how they lace down toward the toe for a really snug fit. I added a pair of Smart Feet for my high arches and plan to wear these shoes on vacation where I will be walking and biking but want a shoe that's a bit more "presentable" than my ratty outdoor shoes. The color isn't really "lime" but a very nice, soft mossy color.

The shoe looks absolutely great. The only problem is the bottoms of my feet are extremely sensitive and with the type of sole on these shoes, it just wasn't comfortable to me. Otherwise, I'm sure it's a super shoe.

I ordered these last night and UPS just delivered them at 7PM tonight. Amazing. Not only that but the shoe is comfortable right out of the box. I just wanted a change from my usual Merrell Ventilators of which I bought two pair over the last four years. These GoLite are firm, and really impress me, and they look better than the Merrell, too. If they fall apart or don't last at least two years of 10 to 20 miles a week on the trail with my beagle, I'll update this review, but so far so good.

These are great shoes, extremely light and comfortable although I've just been cruising the local museum not mountain climbing or long distance hiking. My only concern is that the sizing is slightly off.

These are fantastic shoes! Really light weight and extremely comfortable. The inserts are great too. I have one removed from my right foot because that foot is a little bigger than the others and it's the first time both shoes seem to fit like a glove!

I ordered these for my husband. They look great on him and he says they feel great. His size is usually 9 1/2 or 10 and the 10's fit fine with the thicker layer insoles. I have several pairs of Golites myself and they are the only shoes that work well with my custom orthotics.

I love these. I have feet that are wide in the front, but narrow in back and the adjustable insole makes these one of the most comfy shoes I've ever owned. Not my usual style, but worth it. They also fit my ankle perfectly and provide a lot of support. They look just like the picture.

Oh yeah...comfort has been found in these shoes. I will look for more GoLite shoes and this shoe makes my size 12 boats look smaller thanks to the lacing. Inserts make the shoe adjustable for hard-to-fit feet.
