Zig Kinetica II Edge runs narrow

Most comments said that the sneaker is narrow. According to a hiker, the sneaker is “a bit narrow in the forefront.” One tester said you could stay true to your size but be sure to wear thinner socks. 

Several other sneakerheads have different opinions as well. “Go half size larger if you want to wear medium-weight socks,” advised one reviewer. Order one full size up because the “wide heel makes them stable when standing or walking,” claimed another. Regardless you go half or full size up, a tester reassures that after adjusting the toggle laces, “they feel great!”
