The shoe is sturdy and sharp. The sole grips quickly on non porous surfaces. I wear a size 11 and I am 210lbs. The shoe is too tight for me to keep. In this shoe I am guessing I would need an 11.5". The mesh does not breathe so my foot overheats fast in the summer. I though the mesh (appearance) fabric would better push out heat. I don't think the value is there. I bought these in website sale 20% off but I was charged full retail. I will return this shoe since it is too small, does not breathe in summer and the sale price was not applied. I think this shoe is best suited for fall or even more so for winter. These kinds of things I wish were stated in the description.
