I bought these to replace my low top hiking shoes and to fill partially the trail running niche, since I always end up running down the mountain, etc.. I wore these a few times to break them in and realized they feel awesome from the get go. My feet tend to be narrow but my toe box has to have some spread since on touchdown my toes spread out. These hold my foot well around the arch and heel (mid foot zone) but have some room for my fore foot to spread out some. Best shoe I have ever had on my feet!
