Beware of the colour depiction on this site, in actuality it is waaaay more blue (so much so that I thought I'd been sent the wrong shoes). If you do an image search there are some much more accurate images around online. Apart from that, they are very nice and seem really well made. I have a narrow foot and they fit me perfectly, but as others have already pointed out, avoid this style if you have a wide foot.

Very snug fit towards the ball of the foot. Like... v e r y snug. Took about a week for them to break in and they're much better now. Maybe get them a 1/2 - 1 size bigger than your normal size, or wide if available Great stitching as usual, great grip, super lightweight.
Quality made. It's just that my orthodics do not fit in them. Shoe size is perfect, there just is no room for orthodics. I have very flat feet and if you do as well, get something else.
