So far they have been holding up just as good as my New Balance shoes which is my usual go-to brand.
They fit great and are very comfortable.
They are super comfy and fit perfectly!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfy running shoes that vegans will love
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on May 12, 2023
These running shoes are super-comfy, nice cushioning in the soles, and almost enough arch support even for me (I have high arches and always have to put in some inserts, but these shoes are almost there already).
One thing you must know: they fit TRUE to size; do not listen to the reviewers who say they run a half size too small. I did, and I ordered a half size up, and lo and behold, the shoes were a half size too big. Duh. I returned them and got my usual size, and they fit perfectly.
The toe box is roomy without my feeling like my feet are swimming in them. The heel hits my ankle/achilles at a comfortable place and haven't given me blisters. The outsole tread is pretty beefy, good for trail running. Mind, these are not trail running shoes, but if your ankles are like iron, you can definitely do trail running in these comfy shoes.
Happy with my purchase. A word about the laces: at least one other reviewer noted the shoe laces, which are indeed pretty lame. Thin and delicate--wouldn't last long. All I did was switch out the much thicker/stronger laces from my worn out running shoes, and I'm good to go.

4.0 out of 5 stars To run in I need good laces for arch support.
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on April 5, 2023
I love the Venture shoes. Tried so many different shoes. I’d give it 5 stars if it came with better laces. I like the fact that the older models are made to last much longer, there’s more toe protection and the soles have more coverage than the newer shoes. I run on off road with them. I run on a highway in Hawaii that has a shoulder and than gravel and dirt so I try to get off the pavement on the dirt and gravel when I can. I love these shoes. I like a sturdy shoe that would last for training runs. Than when I race with a lighter shoe it feel so light.
I need my running shoe laces tight in the arch area for good arch support and looser in the toe and ankle area so my foot can bend while running. The laces they came with were too thin to tighten where I needed them to tighten.
I bought them once before last year but returned them for that reason and bought the Venture 6. Went to replace the 6 and I saw these again at a really good price so I tried them again and decided to try them with different laces and it made a big difference on the fit.
