The shoe is not easy to break in...it takes a few hikes or at least 20 miles. I have hiked the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim and Rim to River, and they are great, but going downhill my toes hit the inside of the shoe causing some major discomfort.
The local store has them 60% off and I think I am going to buy another pair and go up a size or size and a half. The toe bed is very narrow and I have fat toes!
Otherwise it is a great shoe, and like I said, I am buying another only a larger size.
