I really do believe that the human body is designed to run, and I feel that traditional stability type shoes with a heel that is much higher than the forefoot encourage bad form and do not allow the muscles of the foot and leg to work the way God/Nature designed them. With that in mind, I also don't think that we were designed to run on pavement, which has really only been common for around a hundred years or so. I live in a city that has many miles of wonderfully paved mutii-use paths, but only a few miles of muddy, rutty, sloppy trails. So pavement makes up almost all of my miles.
This shoe allows one to run with a natural forefoot motion, but mimics the cushion of the natural surfaces such as dirt and grass on which we have been running for millions of years. Turns the hard unforgiving road into a nice soft grassy meadow. Best shoe I've ever used for long runs..... by far.
I logged about 500 miles before I wore through the heel. While the shoes felt a little unusual at first after the first few weeks I began to love them. I did run 13.1 in them and they were great, I used them for all of my training as well and never had any issues. There is plenty of support and ample cushion. Start off running shorter distances to adapt to the Zero Drop then titrate your way up.
