I wanted to love this shoe. It has everything I want in a nimble trail runner. Wide toe box to allow the toes to spread, snug heel and midfoot to ensure an awesome glovelike fit, low drop for a midfoot strike, ample protection in the outsole and midsole for shock and sharp rock absorption, lots of breathability, light weight, good tread design, decent looks. Unfortunately, the arch is either really long or placed very far forward. I felt like I had half a golf ball lodged just behind the inside of the ball of my big foot. Over the long haul this would have created a huge blister. Odd because having such a significant arch is out of character for this style of shoe in the first place. I have a high arch, so I wouldn't mind it if it was in the right spot. I watched another person try on this shoe and they provided the exact same feedback immediately without my prompting. The problem could also be that the shoe begins to cut in from the wide toe box too early and too drastically. I'm a smallish, narrowish 13 and these shoes fit absolutely perfectly other than the arch issue.
