Impressed. My regular running shoe now.
on June 5, 2013
I have been using these for a month-and-a-half now, and am very pleased. I am a fully converted minimalist. As with every new shoe, I don't immediately make a new shoe my daily runner.... I phased this in over two weeks, but it has been my daily for about a month. Very light. So much so, it feels like I am wearing nothing at all, compared to some of my other minimalist shoes. Unlike a previous reviewer, I find these shoes to be well ventilated and cool. There is one reason I am not giving this shoe five stars... it had a seam flap that did not lay flat, seemingly similar to what a previous reviewer commented. After my second wearing I was discouraged and thought I was going to be returning them, because that flap (on the inside-side, just behind the ball of the foot) irritated my skin. To repair, I super-glued it down in the proper position (using Loctite brand gel super-glue). It has stayed put, with zero discomfort. These shoes are now my favorite. One shouldn't have to "repair" new shoes.... but if you get these, and you have the same problem, it was a real easy (and seemingly permanent) fix.
