I agree with the other reviewer, the heel box is too wide while the wide toe box is welcome. My solution was to cut a 1″ strip of Mole-foam (not skin) and put that in the heel. Be sure to add better insoles and then put your mole foam in there.
I wore only TWO pairs of these shoes on my 2, 650 mile thru-hike of the PCT last summer. That’s great value, never mind the price tag. LOVE these. It’s all about a hard sole with great traction. You don’t feel the rocks and trail and you do not need a boot.
I love the Patagonia Drifter.
