Color scheme: Yeah, my mistake. Didn't look to closely last time I was looking at 295s--maybe I was looking at women's version or TrailRoc.
If the fit was snugger through heel and mid foot, I could prob. live with that (I'm wearing Trail Gloves now), but narrower in the toes box would be a problem, since the old 295s weren't any too generous there anyway.
All things being equal, I prefer shoes a little less dramatic in appearance than the Lone Peaks. But it might be worth ordering a pair and trying them on--there seems a lot there to like.
