I have mortons neuroma so it is hard to find a shoe that I can walk in for fitness. I have the Lone Peak 2.5 which was my first pair of this brand. I have no pain in them. I got this pair next. I can walk distances in either pair without any ball of foot pain at all. I have been through many expensive shoes before this that did not work for my feet. I took this pair (the Lone Peak 3.0) on a trip out to Yellowstone/Grand Tetons/Jackson, where I did a lot of hiking. No pain.. And the tread was great on the gravelly trails. I wish they would make a high-top version for terrain that requires some ankle support.
