I purchased this shoe as a gift. I've heard the shoe is comfortable for wide feet. The canvas shoe is washable. Just remove the cork footbed and let air dry after washing.
After stop running in Mizuno a few years ago I decided to give this shoe a try. I'm happy with the updates Mizuno has done. I felt like the shoe gave me enough support but was not a heavy, clunky trainer. Mizuno claims U4ic midsole weights in 30% lighter and I could tell. I felt the shoes were light and fast and was an enjoyment to pound the pavement the few times I have worn these.
I'm now on my second pair and loving these shoes. I was disappointed when La Sportiva got rid of the exum series. The Xplorers is a worthy replacement. I use these shoes for hikes, sandstone scrambling, and long approaches canyoneering. The athletic upper and stiff bottom is great for comfort on long approaches. If getting into terrain tough on the side of the shoes consider reinforcing the seams. If really tough & skiny off width stuff consider a different shoe designed for that type of terrain. I wear a size 11 (44.5) in a lot of brands but I like size 45 in La Sportiva.
