I really like the feel of these shoes. I use them mostly for cross-training at a gym. The fit runs about a 1/4 size small in my opinion but that was easy to fix thanks to Moosejaws rockin return policy. Comfort is primo in these. I have a mid to high volume foot with a low arch and average width. as for durability and construction, there are some cosmetic issues. the stitching around the tongue is loose (I think these were the first or last on the thread bobbin). Ive seen plenty of these shoes that had no issues in that regard. Bottom line, these are great shoes for the money. I scored mine on sale here at MJ. I'll get another pair.
