Rating: 4 / 5
I wear size 14, 14 wide if I can find it. I'm not sure why I've got these giant dogs but whenever my Mom and I see Bigfoot on the old Discovery channel she gets a far away look in her eye. So, obviously I'm obsessed with finding ul shoes. Size 14 shoes can weigh up to a pound over advertised weight, usually for size 9, add that to the adage one pound on your feet equals three on your back and you can see why shoe weight keeps me up at night. These shoes are champs, I would pass out a 5 rating but I got some rubbing on the ball of my foot during an epic down hill in the smokies, no blister but the moleskin had to make an apperance. As for durability I've put around 200 miles on 'em so far and they're still looking pretty spiffy. They clean up easy, dry fast, and with a little Arm and Hammer they don't smell like gym class. I've worn them with loads up to twenty pounds and I haven't turned an ankle yet (knock on carbon fiber). With no insoles you can feel the trail and thats a bonus when navigating my giant sasquatch feet through the roots and wet granite of the blue ridge.
