odd fit
These feel great when you first put them on. However, the tongue does not seem to cushion well, causing extreme soreness to the front of the foot/ankle area over time. They also seem to run a bit big - am going to REI to trade down a half size and if those don't quite work, well, I'll be checking this section again for recs.

UPDATE: Exchanged for a size 7 (generally my hiking boots are a 7.5 -8). They fit great. BUT. Still an issue with pressure where the tongue sits. I think I'll keep monkeying with them a few more times before giving up.
