I have some foot issues and must wear "flat" zero drop type shoes and need a roomy wide toe box. This is my second style of Altra zero-drop shoes. My first pair were intuition 1.5. Really like them but wanted a shoe with more cushion and a bit of water resistance for traveling. These were perfect. On vacation for 2 weeks walking city streets, museums and a bit of trail hiking. Usually my feet get tired and achy, and i must have an alternate pair for trade-offs. But i wore these shoes everyday, all day... no trading off. Comfortable enough for street wear and enough tread to scramble up and down rocky trails. The color is eye-catching several strangers stopped me in a gallery or museum to ask about these shoes. Didnt experience any serious rain or slip into any creeks so the water resistant quality has not been tested yet. Although walking through tall wet grass my feet did remain dry.
