I wear good solid shoes with a progressive not compliant attitude.
None of the selections fit me. I am not conservative. I am not stylish.
I am not trendy.
I am not out for fashion statement, I LIVE In my shoes.
I hike, run through airports in my Danskos, live in a climage with
6 months of winter and snow. My shoes must fiunction in all of these
activities and look good with whatever I wear. I admit sometimes
I do not look great but that is not my priority. Form follows function.
I need solid support under my arches since I am a great pronator.
I wear Danskos, Baffins and New Balance.
I have coveted a pair of these Hafflinger for years.
When I saw the spotted dog that was it. I HAD TO HAVE THEM.
I am an artist and this creativity needed support!
They are wide as stated by other reviewers. The 41 seemed long
without socks. But if I wear them with a wool liner and additional
wool outer sock they fit great. This combinatin keeps me totally toasty.
I may try a size 40 for warmer weather.
The arch support is fantastic. I have a good solid base under my foot.
