This shoe beat up my feet at first but now is great. The perpetoum last has a wider toebox and narrower heel. I would say it runs 1/2 size small. I like that Vasque tells you what last their shoe is built on. I want to buy the Talus boot. does anybody know how the sizing runs on that? I'm becoming a Vasque man from Merrell.

I've only been wearing for a couple months but will let you know on wear. Vasque is good for labeling the lasts they use. This eliminates trying boots that won't fit. I would have said Merrell were the best for me, but am changing my mind.
