Hey Mike 338, I used moleskins for awhile to fight blisters but they didn't hold up in the tough going. A friend told me to put duct tape on the heels beforehand and they worked better.
You were right about the crispi's being skinny. Had to send them back.I bought 1/2 size bigger because my feet swell after extreme hikes. I usually wear a 10-10-1/2 and I got 11’s in the crispi. With the ABS system you can tighten them up to a uncomfortable level. Kenetrek seems like the eyelets are so close together(side to side) you can only tighten so much before they bottom out. I would say that crispi runs skinny to answer your question
