After I managed to get the right size I can say these boots fit great out of the box. I like the stability of the boot, which is surprising given its light weight.
I tend to prefer wearing trail runners or similar unless I really need to put on my alpine mountaineering boots, but since having a kid I've needed a lightweight, surefooted and supportive mid-shoe while carrying him in the hiking pack. These boots are the perfect tool for the job. Amazing grip even on wet, slick rock; just enough support to always feel stable but not so restricting so as to prevent good footwork; and lightweight so the extra support puts a minimal weight penalty on your feet.
Received the Mid GTX about a week after ordering. Shoes were perfect and for me at least fit my usual size (9). Comfortable, very grippy on wet rocks, love the look. Best shoes I've ever worn for comfort, looks and performance. Have ordered a second pair in a different colour.
