La Sportiva Boulder X
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $130
Excellent shoe! I used them on the outdoor for 20 miles and didn't feel anything in my feet. I recommend it a lot.

The fit is OK. They're really comfort and the support it's OK. Don't try them in the rain.
For me these are wonderful shoes.
