Salewa Women's Alp Trainer Hiking Shoe
I have had these shoes for about a year. I have to say, I like them quite a bit, but, they are a very stiff shoe and take some time to wear in hence the 4 star rating. The first time I wore them on a hike, my feet were killing me, but they did grip the rocks very well. Over time they have improved and I look forward to exploring the trails in them this summer. I do like the way they look with jeans - you cant tell from the picture, but the laces have a magenta weave through the lace. As far as sizing goes, I wear an 8.5 to 9.0 and the ones I bought were a size 9.
