Tried 2 pair of New Balance MT710G02. 13, 2E - too long too narrow, then 12, 4E - short and pinching outside toes, both feet.
About to give up on NB then weighed them.
NB MT710G02. 12, 4E 10.4 Oz (left shoe)!
Keen Targee II 13's - 21.6 Oz (left shoe)!
Ordered a pair NB MT910RDs in 12.5, 54E.
One more try.
