First off, in comparison to the Salomon SpeedCross 3 Climashield shoe, These fit seemingly wider and I think more true to size. These shoes are great, they have good tread, the goretex liner is killer, and keeps you bone dry. For hiking and approaches they have plenty of support, and are even awesome for walking to class on wet days. However, has a running shoe- there are many better options. These shoes are on the heavier side of things, and feels "clunky" if you while running. It may be just my opinion, but these are definitely not my dedicated running shoe.
