Going for 68% off at Bargainoutfitters.com. As of 9PM EST they have sizes 8-12. Just remember they tend to run a half size small.Feb 9, 2009 at 6:43 pm #1476626
That's pretty tempting, I've been wanting to try some Montrails. I noticed they also have the Hurricane Ridges for $50. Wonder which kind I should try?
Edit: After I saw the $5 coupon, I couldn't resist. $31, shipped, for a pair of shoes…I can use them to loaf around in, or resell them to someone on here if they don't fit…Feb 9, 2009 at 6:52 pm #1476632

I received a new pair of Hardrocks a couple of weeks ago but couldn't resist getting a second pair for less than $31 total, including shipping. Thanks for the tip!Feb 14, 2009 at 11:07 am #1477823

Thanks a bunch for the heads up. I just ordered two pair and signed up for Bargain Outfitters email alerts.
I'm on my second pair of Montrail Continental Divides (with a third in the closet). Thought I'd compare the two models. Hopefully sizing runs the same- the Continental Divides are a full size bigger than my street shoes.Feb 14, 2009 at 10:22 pm #1477928
I ordered size 11.5, and I normally wear 11 in regular shoes. I'm actually wearing them now, and debating if they are going to be large enough to keep.Feb 19, 2009 at 6:15 am #1478930
If you decide those 11.5 are too small for you to use, and you want to get rid of them, let me know. I got a size 11 and they are a little snug on me.Feb 19, 2009 at 6:56 am #1478939
I think I'm going to be okay, as they seemed to have stretched. I'll take them on a backpack this weekend and see how many blisters I get, or see if they burst after my feet swell. At the very least, they'll make great outdoor lifestyle image shoes to wear around town.Feb 19, 2009 at 7:59 am #1478964

If you're going to sign up for Bargainoutfitters.com alerts, go sign up for Sportsmansguide.com alerts too; same company, but the prices and alerts vary wildly. I just couldn't get the Hardrocks to fit me right.Mar 14, 2009 at 5:55 pm #1485610

Since they had a cult following, I decided to try a pair since they were on sale. I initially was put off by the rather large and rearward positioning of the arch support, but after a trail run of about 3 miles over rocky terrain, I did not have any issues with them, and thought they were a good bit more supportive and padded than my Inov-8's. I'm glad I picked them up and I think they will be very good for rocky trails. I did order 1/2 size up. I wore fairly thin socks for a great fit. The tarp was made by Mike Stivers.Mar 14, 2009 at 8:13 pm #1485648

I wore Hardrocks last year on the PCT from Sonora Pass to Dunsmuir where my crippled feet made me get off the trail. I was so completely debilitated by them it took several months to recover.
At first they felt great. Then I noticed it felt like my toes pointed way up in the air all the time. Soon shooting, stinging random pains throughout my feet would leave me doubled over and shouting out loud. My metatarsal bones felt broken. I had to alter my gait so much in them my quads practically atrophied.
I cannot understand why I cannot wear these shoes and others rave about them.Mar 16, 2009 at 8:17 am #1485927
@ramblerLocale: On the AT in VA
Same thing happened to me I think, Diane. Afetr 100 miles on ther AT I came off the trail with with foot pain straight back from my big toe. I thought I might have a broken bone in my foot. It was only on the right foot. The doctor said it was my metatasal. The pain eventually went away, but came back on a day hike in the Utah Uintas. It just does not happen with other shoes such as the Montrail Vitesse or the Merrell Ventilator. Too bad, because the Hardrock is very comfortable otherwise.
