TrekSta Evolution Mid GTX
Lisa you commented with an average rating for a shoe that is obviously not sized for your foot. Because you purchased a standard width shoe, while having an admittedly hard-to-fit wide foot, it would only seem to follow the fit would be off.
Careless raters such as yourself give products lackluster ratings because they improperly outfit themselves—at no fault of the company—and potentially ward off buyers.
Unfortunately I have not received my pair in the mail yet to combat your misguided post, but please be cognizant of your inability to appropriately rate a product.

Gorgeous boots BUT: Do not fit every foot as claimed!!
I was very excited from reviews to order these new boots. I have a hard to fit woman's wide foot. Boots are beautiful, very lightweight, good sturdy sole, great dirt color and Goretex which I wanted for cold / wet hiking and backpacking.
The insert is interesting with small pads at different pressure points. Fit was tight for me with med./thin hiking sock. For any regular size foot I believe they would be fantanstic.

We think the US Postal service should make the Treksta Evolution GTX Mid their official shoe. Rain, sleet, and ice shall not deter the wearer of these shoes from their appointed tasks. Mid-cut for support on uneven surfaces, cushioned for those miles on bone-numbing cement, lugged soles for dirt paths Treksta's amazing IceLock/Hypergrip outsole to provide traction in any condition NestFIT system cradles your feet, accounting for every contour as it follows the natural flow and design of the foot. Upper, insole, midsole, and outsole work together like never before. Gore-Tex Extended Comfort waterproof/breathable membrane keeps your feet dry and comfortable in varying weather. Hypergrip: For many generations of footwear, a shoe sole had to have low wear resistance in order to give you good stability and traction. HyperGrip has changed that forever. It is exceedingly wear resistant, highly stable, light and durable. HyperGrips innovative patented technology also gives their soles outstanding properties for tension, tear, elasticity and strength; plus almost no breaming (a phenomenon where rubber turns white). If you desire both stability and durability, HyperGrip is your clear choice. IceLock is a patent pending technology that dramatically increases traction on ice. Micro-glass filaments are electrostatically aligned in the rubber compound creating slip-stopping surface tension. Treksta embeds their HyperGrip soles with IceLock pads creating the first ever all-season shoe.
