It is not advisable to start running in these shoes from the very start - training of the foot and leg muscles is needed to be done to help reduce injuries. What Saucony say about minimalist running and the shoes... Going minimal all at once is risky because minimal shoes ask more of different muscles in your feet and calves. Instead, we recommend using a minimal shoe for one or two of your runs each week. This will strengthen those less developed muscles and help you realise a new and better overall level of f

i like these better then my asics gt-2160's
Before the year (2011) was over, the sides started to get worn out and a hole started to develop (just where the first knuckle of my outermost toe pressed against--on both feet). After more use, the holes got bigger to about 1/2 inch in diameter.
I hope the newer versions have been improved in that area; maybe, just maybe, I'll give them another try.
For the shoes, they are exactly as advertised and packaged exactly as you'd buy shoes from a physical store. They look great, giving a sense of good build quality, nothing is flimsy or roughly done. The size seems accurate, and runs consistently throughout the Saucony shoe collection (size 10 fits perfectly for me in any of their shoes that I tried on).
For the comfort and purpose of these shoes (breaking into the minimalist running scene), again, they are exactly as they are advertised. They are light and the shoe seems to mainly just cushion the foot rather than guide it through your stride. I'm flatfooted, and trying to improve my arch and foot strength, and these shoes appear to have the perfect balance between some support against pronation, while allowing me to consciously work on improving my stride and strike.
If you're looking for a more minimalist experience though, or need no protection against pronation at all, definitely go for the Kinvaras from Saucony, which are lighter and feel even less inhibiting.
So, when I aspired to take my running to the next level biomechanically, I naturally began the search with ultra-minimals like the Vibram FiveFingers. Apprehensive after hearing multiple horror stories, I decided to find a natural middle ground and bought my first pair of Kinvaras. A godsend, truly -- but just like the clouds they feel like, they can dissipate quickly.
To supplement this aggressive wear, I decided to pick up a pair of Mirages to balance out the wear and tear on my Kinvaras. Here's a few observations:
- Construction: it's a bit heavier -- it feels like my old Ride when standing, but kinda sorta like a heavier Kinvara when running. The sole does wear down around the same rate as the Kinvara, but not as aggressively since I'm rotating them out.
- The toebox feels slightly more narrow than the Kinvara's -- this could be a function of the material being more rigid, but it does seem like my forward-striking foot has a bit less space to roam about.
- My foot has adapted really, really well to the different feel of the low heel drop. Both shoes are just fantastic trainers to keep on a rotating schedule.
One star basically is lot due to the lower durability and narrow toe box, but otherwise -- a great shoe to have if you want to reduce strain on your new Kinvaras but not lose the ride quality and experience of a semi-minimalist shoe.
