help on 02/20/2009 08:47:06 MST Print View

could someone tell me if they run wide or not? i have a 2E (in NB) foot so sometimes regular widths work and sometimes not. Comments?

do they run large or small? I see the sizes are 12/12.5 and 13/13.5 and i'm stuck on which to choose.

I don't know about the fit, but I do know my son burned thru both layers of sole on the trail claws on a brand new pair of Sun Dragons, on one 9 mile hike up Guadelupe Peak in Guadelupe NP. YMMV.

I'm not sure if I would even pay the shipping cost for a free pair of Golite shoes.

I have the 10/10.5 which is my normal size. I have a 4E foot and they fit perfectly with the widest insert (they have adjustable inserts). I have about 30 trail miles and a mile or so on the road on mine with no visibile signs of wear (same for my GF). This applies to the Sun Drag II which isn't in the sale. I would assume the sizing is similar across the line but I don't know about longevitiy.

thanks guys!

Chris, that is exactly what i was looking for. I guess i'll hold off. They don't seem to be very durable.

Oh well. Back to my NB 908's

Maybe I got a lemon, and for $20, I am really, really tempted. Must resist though, losing job. Anyway, here are my son's after 9 miles, in rocky Guadelupe National Park. YMMV.

The original Sun Dragon did have wear issues. It seems to be fixed in the newer model though.

I have tried on several pairs at the Whole Earth in Dallas, they are just to wide for my feet. I would love to give them a try but they fit like wides in any other brand. The pairs I tried came with 2 insoles to make up for width and length fit problems. To gimicky for me.

Sun Dragon II on 02/20/2009 13:53:23 MST Print View

I've put a few miles on my Sun Dragon II's, and so far, so good. Though I did a nice job of melting the front rubber by putting it too close to the fire.

I'm such a hypocrite. Ordered 3 pairs. Let my son pick the ones he wanted, then ran some errands before ordering, and they were gone! Too many forums posting good sales!

I ordered 3 pairs......I'm anxious to check them out. I've been doing alot of running lately and wearing out shoes like crazy! We'll see how these handle the wear.

Thanks for the headsup.
