Latest ReviewThese are pretty well-rounded sneakers. They look good, are nice and supportive around the ankle, and have arch support. I haven’t taken them on a run yet, but I’m guessing that they’d do well due to their light weight. As far as sizing, yes you should go up about a half size. I’m an 8, and the 8.5 fits well. I can feel the front of the shoe on my toes a little, but not uncomfortably so. I suppose if that would bother you, you could go a whole size up. The toe area is really big and I can wiggle my toes easily. I wore them for a day and could feel them breaking in and stretching out, so for me, a whole size up would not be an option. I’ve worn them with thin socks, thick socks, and barefoot. All ways were similar in comfort, but I preferred my thick ankle socks most because of the extra cushion. Hope this review helps someone.
