Know what you're getting
on November 4, 2013
I found this shoe to be amazing, but I knew exactly what to expect. It's basically a glorified sock, and with the shoe inserts I added, they're more like a glorified padded sock.
I usually run 3-5 miles. Maybe twice or three times a week. I've never actually tried them on a trail, but they're perfect for pavement or a running surface. The shoes forced me to change my running stance a little, so I put less weight and impact on my knees. But that's exactly what I wanted. I'm almost 28, so the more I can do to help my 'aging' joints, the better.
The awesome thing about these sneakers is the weight. The shoes are super light -- just 7 ounces. They're so light and easy to compress that you can throw them in your bag to go to the gym or for runs when you're on a trip. I was pretty psyched to have them on a trip to Bali when I wanted to climb a volcano.
One problem I've noticed is durability. They're not super durable. I've had them for about 6 months now, but a tear has developed on the mesh upper.
The other problem is the price. I paid about $65 price (May 2013). which I was pretty happy about. But I'd be much less happy if I had paid the current price (November 2013) of $109.
