I have a thin foot with a high arch and a wide toe span; I'm hard to fit. If I had to get rid of all my shoes and keep only 1 pair, it would be the Altamont. Thin socks in summer, thick socks in winter, a little black shoe creme and a brush every so often, and these shoes last about a year of EVERYday wear at 3-4 miles on each of those days. I never had a shoe that durable or comfortable. I stocked up just in case they quit making them.
