I bought these for my mother as a birthday present.
Honestly, she wanted them more as a well supported every day shoe than a dedicated hiking shoe. It's no surprise that they more than deliver as a walk about shoe for daily life - if they are built to handle trails, a sidewalk is going to be no problem.
Fit was true to size for her at a 9.5. Sole is very sturdy and provides plenty of traction. The Charcoal/Sterling Blue color option is nice and understated.
