    Look at the picture I uploaded of my red shoes!
    I've been an avid/casual runner for over 12 years, and I usually run every day for a solid 40mins. I've always used a traditional heel-heavy running shoe, and through the years I've trained myself to land flat-footed (a good mid-foot landing). ...With that said, I didn't know until a month ago that these "minimal running shoes" even existed, so finally today I went to a local shoe store and bought a pair of Minimus Zero.

    Before running in them, be sure to remove the "size" sticker on the inside of each shoe, it's slippery and will reduce your in-shoe traction, and if you aren't wearing socks it will eventually begin to scratch against your skin due to the stickers sharp edges.

    After buying the shoes I ran ~2 miles, and wow, what a huge surprise they turned out to be! First off, I've always worn an 11.5D, and that's the size I got for these shoes too; I'm wearing socks because I don't want to bother with blisters/sweat, so I can't [yet] comment on how they run w/out socks (see 'UPDATE 2' below to learn about sock-less running). ...But so far I'm really enjoying them. But wow, the muscles in my feet and calves were not accustomed to this new form of shoe. While running in these shoes for the first time, I had to stop and walk twice as often as I normally would in traditional shoes. I read the reviews here, and over at the NB website, and it's 100% true what they say about "being focused on your feet." ...For my 1st run, I was constantly thinking/analyzing my footing, and it was rather enjoyable, because I was experiencing a totally new form of running!

    After ~10mins into my run I had to stop and tighten the laces, which made them more snug to my feet. ...

    I love this shoe! I am a collegiate runner with an average of 50-60 miles per week. I have just gotten into minimalist running and these are my favorite by far. I started with the New Balance 730's because they had more of a drop. The drop is the distance from the ground from the heel and the front of the foot. These shoes have zero drop meaning the heel has the same amount of distance to the ground as the front of the foot. Most shoes have a drop greater than 13mm! If you haven't ran in a minimalist shoe before I recommend the 730's first which have a 4mm drop. The first couple times your calves will be absolutely burning, don't be alarmed, minimal running strengthens the foot and works muscles that aren't usually worked by traditional trainers.

    Pros: Extremely lightweight, I wear these on my fast days as flats, but also on my long runs because I feel super fast. I gave 4 stars to the 730's but these 00's are far better in my opinion. They are durable and I have gone around 75 miles with no holes or breaking down of the shoe whatsoever. The sole is made of vibram material and is more flexible than any version of Nike Free. They fit like a sock and don't require socks to run comfortably in. There is no insert and conforms perfectly to my foot. I have a relatively wide foot and these fit perfectly.

    Cons: Shoelaces that come with them are too long, and I'm not a fan of double knotting.

    I recommend this shoe over any other minimalist shoe. I am very happy with this product.

    I was extremely skeptical when I first encountered this shoe at a local specialty runners store. I had actually went looking for a good Merrell running shoe when I decided to try these out at the recommendation of the salesperson. This shoe felt as if I was barefoot, so I gave it a try. My experience with the shoe after six months of what I consider 'moderate' running (20 miles/week) follows.

    First off, a bit about my running routine for reference. I am:
    - mid forties of athletic build
    - run in the Austin Texas heat and cold (depending on season)
    - on average of 4 days a week
    - 3-5 miles of running each stretch
    - pavement and some graveled trail for bikes and joggers in Zilker Park

    The very first day I took these out for a brisk run, I was amazed by how light they felt. It was literally almost as if wearing socks only and at first this was a little disconcerting after being so accustomed to more bulky running shoes. This was compounded by the thin sole that had a tendency to really 'feel' the road beneath my feet. Rocks and sticks were noticeable, but nothing painful or rough. It actually felt like I was running barefoot, but protected enough to not injure the bottom of my feet. It felt amazing!

    After 1 mile, I noticed my ankles and shins began to become fatigued. I thought to myself "Oh no! These shoes aren't giving me the support I need!" I couldn't have been more wrong. As it turned out, finally my legs and feet were running NATURALLY, without the shoe interfering with my gait and stride. I realized this only after the full 4 miles was run, because much to my amazement, the soreness was really from the same muscles that I hadn't been exercising the same way than if barefoot.
