    Altra Intuition size 11

    58 miles on shoes and "Support" insoles, "Strengthen" insoles are unused. Some road dust but no mud.

    They're just too narrow for my feet and I've given up trying to sell them. Free to good home.

    They'd probably fit me - other than the narrowness are they a true 11?

    And if she doesn't want them, can I be next in line?

    Murienn can have them - she probably actually runs.

    No...I walk long-distance though.

    Are you sure?

    I'm in the long distance walk/hike category as well. You can have them. I went on line and it suggested ordering up 1/2 size. Even though I am an 11 in street shoes, my running shoes are 12s, so probably would be better for me to pass.

    That's great Sarah, assuming it's okay with Oak. My true size is 10.5, so I end up with a lot of slightly too big or slightly too small shoes, depending.

    And on that note, Oak, can you wear size 10 in Merrells? I have a pair that are too wide in the toe box. The length appear longer than typical 10's, my feet slide forward; I don't think it's due just to the width. They are very nice. Don't even have miles on them. Slight wear on the tread. I remember I wore briefly on the hybrid. Great for platform pedals. Nice grip, and wide toes. Very stable. Leather and mesh. Interested in trading? They are called the Merrell Women's Hypno. They may be discontinued. Not sure. Considered walking shoes. Probably good for hiking too. Merrells just don't fit me.

    Edit: just measured them against a pair of trail shoes that fit me well, and the Merrells are about 2 cm longer.

    I've never worn Merrell. I may have tried on a pair of Trail Gloves at some point, and most likely they were too narrow, most shoes are for me. Do yours have removable insoles, and if so, what do they measure across the metatarsal arch? The Altras aren't narrow per se, they're just too narrow for me. My feet are 4" even across the metatarsals. The Altra insoles are 3-5/8"...

    I tried doing some outsole measurements, but they're all over the map ... some shoes the uppers can successfully overhang the sole without causing problems with the 5th metatarsal head, other times the sole is wider than the upper, so I really couldn't learn anything by doing that.

    I have no idea my "true size." Shoe buying for me is a choice of compromises. Most of what I wear is size 43 Wide either originally or in European conversion (Lake men's road shoes, Mizuno men's running shoes (US men's 10EE), Nike women's Zoom Triax Structure 13+ (US women's 11D, a model that's super wide and square in the toebox unlike the rest of their line). My Stem/Leming shoes are 42, though I'd be able to go a size smaller on length alone. When I tried on a pair of Clark's street shoes in 11 Wide they were like freakin' boats everywhere except across the metatarsal arch.

    Anyway ... with all that, if you think the Altras will work for you, I don't need a trade, unless you really think the Merrells have a chance of fitting me. LMK.
