Great shoe so far! Very comfortable heel fit (I have a bit of a narrow heel, size 11), enough room in toe box. However, stepped on a wet wood deck and slipped (almost fell, wrenched my appendix). Wait, I don't have an appendix. I'd be careful on wet, flat surfaces.

I specifically purchased these shoes for their grip stick rubber technology GSR that GoLite states is an "exclusive high-grip compound that offers extra traction on slick surfaces, such as wet rocks, snow and ice." My first day out I hiked Stone Mountain which is solid granite. It was slightly wet in some areas. I slipped and fell right on my rear. I am very disappointed that these shoes were no better then my sneakers that I normally wear. I was expecting them to actually work well and provide the traction that they state to provide. I would not buy them again. As a note, they do run a half size small. I wear a 7 and purchased a 7.5 which fit perfect. And they are cute hiking shoes, they just don't work well for what I need them for.

These are the cutest shoes! They are very light weight, in a fun color, and fit well. I have had a slight problem with the backs coming up too far on my heels, but that was when I wore them the first time on a long walk. They wore blisters on both heels. They have been decent with normal wear since then, and I am wearing my Nikes when I walk! Also, I normally wear a 7 and I had to return the 7 to get 7½. I also took the insole out completely.

I purchased these shoes to be my primary walking and hiking shoes for a long European trip. They are good-looking, well-made, and durable, which makes them appropriate for a variety of settings. They initially rubbed my heel a bit, but they're leather, so they broke in quickly.

I have difficulty finding comfortable shoes but these are fairly good. I removed the insole and put in my orthotics and it actually fit better than I expected. They rub my heel a lot and I have blisters even though I've been putting on bandaids to protect. If the heel rubbing problem goes away, these shoes will be very comfortable. And I like the look!

These shoes are great! I bought them primarily for an upcoming Disney world trip and they were great to walk in for long periods. They seemed a bit on the tight side at first but they must stretch because they're fine now.

I love this shoe! It is so comfortable, no break in required. I read that some people had rubbing, but question what sock they were wearing, because I had no issue. I now have 2 pairs of these, and love them! I also love the inserts that I can adjust on the days my feet are swollen.

I love these shoes. I have three pair, brown, grey and light blue. I wear them just about every day. They fit my feet like a glove and have great support. I have osteoarthritis in my feet and am on my feet 9-10 hours a day. These shoes make a big difference for me. They look really cute on and since I'm only 35 with arthritis it is important to me not to wear orthopedic looking shoes. I'm getting the pink ones next!

These shoes are great. They are very light weight and comfortable. I wear orthodics and there is plenty of room without the shoe getting too tight. They are also very stylish and unique. I love them!

Love my new shoes! They took about a day to become comfortable, but now I do not want to take them off. My regular size felt a little small, so I took out the insole (as suggested by the manufacturer) and now they're perfect. They are sporty and rugged, and at the same time pretty cute; I've received many compliments on the style and color. I always mention I bought them at Zappos -- as usual, the service was great and free shipping both ways makes it a no-brainer.

I love the looks of the shoe. I is comfortable. What I like best, aside from the looks, is how lightweight it is. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the kind of hobnail sole. It's like walking on rubber cleats, but I'm getting used to it.

I love these shoes. I have searched for the perfect shoe and this is it! I have slightly narrow feet so most athletic/hiking shoes, I slide around in and that causes blisters and all over wear and tear on the joints because I am not stable. These fit my feet perfectly, and the grip is amazing, no slipping! Also, they are really light so it doesn't feel like you have lead weights stuck to your feet while you are going up a big hill or mountain! I can never tell these days with shoe sizes, I wear a 39 euro, but in these I am a 9.5. So they are a half size off. But I love them! I got the salmon color, it's a beautiful color, thought it may be too flashy, but I like it. If you have narrow feet, and need a light, comfortable, supportive shoe that has a great non-slip bottom with great traction, these are it!

I just absolutely love my sneakers. They are very comfortable and light. My job involves long hours on my feet, so these shoes are perfect. My co-workers tell me they love them and want to know where I get them.

I bought these shoes to go hiking in Montana. I had a sore big toe so I wanted something with a wider toe box but since I have narrow feet, not too wide. These were great! No problems at all while some of my friends in their hiking boots got purple toe nails from the hike down.

My review in a nutshell is perfect! I've been looking for a cute, casual, sneaker-like shoe to wear out and about. The cute sneakers had no support, and the comfy sneakers had no style. I also wanted something that didn't make me look like I was trying to be a teenager and I didn't want something that looked orthopedic. These are exactly what I was looking for! The fact that they came in a salmon color was just icing on the cake! I did wear them on an easy hike and like a previous reviewer said, they were a little slippery going downhill. But for cruising around on errands, they are exactly what I was looking for. As an added bonus, you can customize the inserts to make them fit with thick socks or thin socks. I love them!

100% as advertised. I’m so grateful to have found these shoes (at my local shoestore, btw). They do run narrow (which is very helpful to me because I have narrow heels and very high arches and I’m finding it more and more difficult to find shoes that work for me). I slipped in a pair of Superfeet insoles and it’s as if these were made for my feet. Most people will probably be fine with the support as-is.

Have a wide foot so took out insoles - heel rode high so I had terrible blisters. Now that they are very well broken in (read - I need a new pair!) they are fine. Get lots of compliments and think I could walk forever in them as they give great support and traction.

I have very narrow feet, so I thought the extra padding in the insole would help, but it just took up room in the toe box. Great shoe, wish they would have fit my arch and heel!

This is a great fitting shoe. The sole is thick so you don't feel rocks and sticks under your feet. Keeps feet warm, consequently not as much air in there.

This shoe was like walking on a temperpedic insole for the first week. However, It was not comfortable after that. There is no arch. The back of the left shoe rubs ones heal. Though it looks really cute. It is not comfortable at all for a person with medium arch.

I love the look of this shoe. Even on my size 11 feet it looked small. Unfortunately, I didn't like the fit. I found it to be a tad on the small side lengthwise. I could not stand the vinyl insole. I found it to provide little support and it was slippery and very hot. After trying them around the house for a minimal time period, I had blisters starting on both heels. This shoe has a lot of potential, but it is not the shoe for me.

I am 54 and have severe osteoarthritis in both hips. These are the only shoes that I can wear that give me the stability I need to alleviate my pain. I can't wear regular tennis shoes. These are the best investment in my health I could ever make. I can walk long distances without pain. I took them to Washington D.C. and walked miles every day! Even my children were surprised how much better I am. I think I could have outwalked them! These shoes give such a stable base that if I have a bad pain day, just putting these shoes on and walking around the house brings a huge improvement in my pain. I have even bought my mother, who has had bilateral hip replacement, a pair. She wears them constantly and states the same reaction as I. I will be buying her another pair in a different color for Christmas. I really cannot say enough about these shoes. Order 1/2 size larger. I wear an 8 usually, but wear an 8 1/2 in these. They do have an adjustable sole for added flexibility. Well worth the price, trust me!

I was looking for a shoe with the comfort of a tennis shoe but with a less sporty look, with a thick sole and good traction. I wanted it to be unique yet comfortable for lots of walking. I had to get half a size larger than I normally wear. The choice of insoles enabled me to choose the one that fit best. This shoe was comfortable from day one. It is waterproof. I am very happy with it.

Very comfortable shoes! The cleats and thicker sole really seem to absorb the shock of each step. They fit true to size. Really liked the option of adding in the extra insole component as my feet are narrow and it's really hard to find shoes that fit well. I work retail, so a nice shoe like this is a necessity!
