Vasque Mindbender A+ shoe!!

Reviewer: Stephanie from Austin, TX
This is my first Vasque purchase. I am so pleased with the shoe. I am not a runner but wanted a shoe that I could wear for hours and hike around various cities. The color is great, the fit is perfect. No break in period at all. I am a full size 10, normal width foot and this shoe fit exactly how I like shoes to fit. I travel overseas every so often and this shoe will be perfect for exploring cities and trails. No need for a heavier hiking shoe. Highly recommend.

GoLite Dart Lite Initial Review but havent been out doors yet
November 30, 2012
Reviewer: peekabooher from Sacramento, CA
So, I read the reviews on the go lite page, and a runners blog and these dart lites are supposed to be light enough for running but sturdy enough not to hurt on rocks. I am new to trail running, but my initial take on the shoe is that it will be great for easy trail running and light hiking. However, I tried them on and walked on the tile floor where an ice cube had melted and I went skating across the floor. The sole has a bunch of nubbies which are supposed to be great for traction and approach, but any flat slippery surface should be avoided. I returned them for this reason; but ended up reordering them because they were the closest fit for my needs of trail running and light hiking. They also are a nice looking shoe on! They don't make my size 8.5 feet look like boats as many running shoes do. Could be worn for a nice athletic looking daily shoe too....just mind the slippery flat wet surfaces. I bought the charcoal and lime.
