This was my first trail style running shoe, so the sticker shock was a bit high initially. Once I got past that though, I could focus on the comfort and support these have. Recently I've really started putting some miles on these.  They're holding up great so far. 

They pretty well ventilated. They even have this little mesh vent right at the toes. I'm not really sure what else to say about them, everyone's feet are a little different, but these fit me very well and I will buy another pair when they wear out.
