        I love these so much...I've worn them on three hikes and they are already my favorite. Very comfortable, great arch support, and really cute! Even on my first hike with them I had zero blisters.

        These shoes are so comfortable.

        Comments about Ahnu Montara II Athletic Shoes:

        I wear these shoes and have for every day for at least 6 months. I work retail in a pet store, so my feet were staying dry every day till they were not so water proof anymore. I know I can buy a waterproofing product and they will be good to go again. The comfort is great. I'm on my feet for over 12 hours a day easy. When I get home from work, sometimes my shoes don't come off till I'm ready to crawl into bed. They also have good traction, even when wet. Not great, but good. I just bought 2 more pairs. One in black and the other in blue, that way I'm not wearing out one pair so bad.

          I was hoping to branch out from the Montara II, but after trying the Sugarpine and Taraval, I'm sticking with the Montara - can walk all day every day on paved surfaces, cobblestone streets, grass - no better shoe out there!

          Comments about Ahnu Montara II Athletic Shoes:

          I live in Asia and it's a challenge looking for hiking shoes for narrow feet. I needed to replace my North Face Vindicators and the Ahnu Montara II was recommended to me by REI, so I took a risk and bought them after trying them out at the store. I wore the shoes when I walked 124kms in Europe earlier this year, and just put them through 100kms of the Via Francigena a couple of weeks ago. Great shoes -- no pain, no blisters, no need for ortho insoles nor tape. The shoes held up well through mud, rain, dirt tracks and paved paths. My only issue was that the cushioning could be improved when navigating asphalt and old Roman stone roads, since I started to feel the hard surface through the soles after a while. Otherwise, I love the shoes and am quite happy with them. Yes, they managed to look good even with mud on them :)

              It's a real bummer that you don't make size 11.5 in these. I'm usually a size 11 in most brands but I ordered 3 pairs of Ahnus in 11 and sadly I have to return them all. It's frustrating to not be able to buy good shoes because my size isn't available!

                I bought a pair today to take to Central Europe on Saturday. I will be doing plenty of walking. I have a narrow foot and am planning testing them around the house for the next 48-hours; hopefully all will be well and they will be my go to shoes for my trip.

                Comments about Ahnu Montara II Athletic Shoes:

                I bought these shoes specifically for my trip to Europe, where I'd walk all day and read another review saying these shoes are excellent for long-term wearing. They were the best shoes I could have gotten. The arch support is excellent. I walked all day with these shoes without knee or back pain, which I typically have. I mountain biked with these and the traction is excellent, as well as excellent traction on off-road trails with rocks and dirt. The only negative is that I think the waterproofing makes your feet stink. My feet smelled so bad I had to change my socks very often. When I run with my other ASICS shoes I change my socks once a week, I never get stinky feet, but these shoes gave me awful stinky feet. But I think stinky feet is an okay price to pay when you have ultimate comfort and no worries about getting hurt anywhere while wearing these. And theven shoes are truly waterproof. I used it in the rain and mud and over puddles and nothing got in my shoes. I am very happy with my purchase and will only use these shoes for ultimate walking and hiking. All I have to do is wash my feet and the smell is gone, so I would say these shoes are excellent for intense activity.

                  I put these shoes to the test by not only taking walks in them, but i also used them while working outside for hours on end; however, the truest test came when I wore them hiking for hours on end. They are champs and my new favorites!

                    I walked the Camino in these shoes, 780km. They were comfortable, waterproof, and allowed me to negotiate varied terrains including steep, rocky descents. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable, sturdy shoe for the Camino.

                      I wore these all over Ireland and they were great! Water proof and comfortable! Nearly always were appropriate looking for what we were doing but definitely "hiking boot" look.
