(UK 6) These are a great shoe and VERY comfortable. They feel very soft underfoot, I feel this makes a difference especially when walking a longer distance. For a change, I like the bright colour for the shoe. The Sensifit lacing system really does cradle the foot and adapts the shoe to your foot shape. The Quicklace system is great, not time consuming at all, I love this feature. Very responsive when walking over different terrain. Used both in the UK and abroad- hot dry climate.
I feel that the toe box is not narrow, a slightly wide feel to it. I feel this gives it more comfort, for those long miles and uneven terrain. It is certainly not like other specifically wide fitting shoes in the walking shoe market. Personally the shoe feels fairly light.
The GTX lining/water resistant textile upper, gives an added comfort with no more wet feet from rain showers. The lugs on the shoes provide a good depth and grip on terrain. The Contagrip sole is non-marking which is a bonus and has great traction. Those slippy wet rocks/surfaces are not as 'dangerous' as my previous shoes were. I can feel the grip difference, even on dry vertical surfaces, VERY good grip! Great support underneath, as I cannot feel the terrain underfoot. These shoes appear to be very durable and have been worn a lot already. Made from good materials and will last a very long time. I love these shoes by Salomon and are a great price for how they perform and feel. Very happy customer!
