I just can't say enough about this shoe. I have loved all of my Lems shoes for a while, they are the first and only brand after years of trying minimalist shoes of all brands that have a wide enough toe box for my foot. With that being said, I was a bit worried about how these might fit and feel after reading one or two reviews. Well, I had nothing to worry about. I spoke to a Lems rep before ordering to be sure of the size I should get. I went on my first big hike in years (due to medical) and I was in so much comfort wearing them on all terrain. The Trailheads were great on rocks, in creeks, up steep trails. I was in NO PAIN like usual hiking shoes. These are fabulous sturdy, yet maneuverable shoes... and they get lots of compliments too. The barely noticeable 4mm drop is nothing. My feet loved them, and my feet love very few shoes. Thank you, Lems, for such a great hiker.
