Most Comfortable Shoe Ever
I'm fairly thin & don't have any issues like weak ankles or foot conditions, just what I consider regular feet. It feels like the shoe touches your foot all over except in the toe area. Really nice to go down hills without sliding into the toe of the shoe! One of the lightest, most supportive shoes I've ever put on my feet. I wore them for a few hours at a time until I became used to the increased amount of arch support. If you feel you need something hard & stiff on the bottom of your feet these may not be for you, seem to be somewhere between the "barefoot" shoes & lightweight hikers. I'm saving my AKU boots for cold weather when I need multiple layers of socks & am using these shoes for everything else. The fit of these shoes allows me to wear thinner socks without even a hint of a blister. I have not had them in a lot of water to test the waterproofness of the GoreTex lining yet. The only thing I've had trouble with is choosing the right size. I wear my normal size in the Evolution II but needed a half size larger in the GTX. Once I got the proper size figured out I realized that I had found the most comfortable hiking/trail running shoes I've ever put on. Have begun to trim weight when hiking & figured the best place to start was the chunk of gear I picked up every step! Please don't change a thing Treksta!

Out of the Box
Just like they promised, the most comfortable shoe right out of the box I've ever owned. Some size 13's are a little cramped, but not these, just the right amount of wiggle room. I can't wait till they make the high top in a decent color though. (Hint, dark brown.) It felt even better at the store. I may have to stock up before they change the design. DON'T CHANGE THE DESIGN!!

Great Price and Gore-Tex... what a combo!
I was looking for a TNF or Patagonia shoes! Came across this brand, I thought I would give it a try since I got it a great deal and waterproof (Gore-Tex) for running in MI winter. It is high quality product, comfortable and not afraid walk in a puddle or two in the parks or the woods. :) The design shape is strange (more like your feet than a pair of shoes), different than anything I've ever owned. If I have to pick one thing about it... (it isn't really its fault) I have flat feet and the arch support causes my feet feeling a tad tired than my other expensive brands. I didn't want to get 2 pairs without trying first. Once I tried a pair and the price went back up. :( If it drops in prices again, I will get a pair with red accent. What can I say, it got me at the Gore-Tex. :)

Nestfit is the Best
In the past I've had trouble finding walking shoes that fit properly. Have even gone so far as buying one size for my left foot and another for my right. After chatting with a very knowledgeable sales person, he suggested I give these a try for winter walking. The Nestfit System was easily adjustable to fit both feet and I've worn them a number of times without any problems. I did order a half size up to accommodate heavier socks. Love these shoes and how they fit right out of the box. Will definitely order this brand in the future.

This shoe forms to my feet well, so i would say ergonomically on spot for my foot and they are very light weight with good traction for trail running. i've experienced my feet getting hot while i run this summer in the heat but it's a four season shoe. very durable light weight running or hiking shoe. Made for the trail any time of year.
