Like many sportiva running shoes, these run small (I normally wear a 41.5 and ended up with a 42.5 in these). But after getting the right size nailed, the shoe appears responsive, comfortable, and well-wearing. Not minimalist and not quite preferred for racing, but comes to its own in rocks and snow. Looking forward to using it on some alpine runs later this year.
Swix certainly sells more expensive waxes, but for most conditions, some LF6-LF8 will do wonders and is a nice boost from CH wax. The waxes can be crayoned on and don't end up costing too much more than a normal hydrocarbon. In cold a little LF4 goes a long ways is likely faster than HF4.
I have one from last year, and if its the same, the sizing runs really small and there isn't a lot of adjustability. If you can get one to fit and stay on without a draw, go for it, otherwise invest in the slightly more flexible and drawstring enabled beach bucket.
Very warm idea, great for hanging out, but not so much for exercise and there are no elastic baffles or side panels. Go for the yellow/ blue if its still available.
