I'm on my 9th pair of Hardrocks - used for trail running as well as hiking and packing and snowshoing. I've tried many other trail shoes and always had some fitting and/or blister issues until I found these. They fit me well, can be loosened when your feet swell a bit, give great underfoot protection as well as support and last well. I usually retire them after about 400 miles, but they still look good. I've used them for the entire Leadville Trail 100 run (only changing into another pair of Hardrocks after the second river crossings at 100k), Desert RATS stage race and many other long hauls.
