    First things first, I love the shoes. They fit me perfectly and I think the purple ones are "cool" enough to wear with normal clothes. When my feet are measured I wear a women's 12 narrow or about a 10.5 in men's. A Brooks 11 fits me very well in this shoe as well as the Beasts I had once upon a time. I don't have a TON of room but I wouldn't consider going bigger. If you have a wide foot you might want to consider going a half size larger than your usual athletic shoe or possibly this just isn't the shoe for you.
    It's really important to note this shoe is not cushioned and if you're looking for a light shoe with any give at all I might suggest Saucony's Kinvara, which I also liked running in a lot and is also very light. The Brooks sole just feels like hard foam when you squeeze it. Right now I use this shoe to walk around in (I walk between 3 and 5 miles every day) and at the gym, but when I start running outside again in spring, I might prefer a different shoe that makes me feel more bouncy.
    Again, I can't say enough how much I like wearing this shoe, but I guess with the hard sole they just feel like incredibly comfortable well fitting street shoes, and when I put them on they don't mentally trigger me into running mode. I'll try them in spring and perhaps report back, if this version of the shoe is even on sale.
    ++Update
    I have started jogging in these on the treadmill. Not a ton, maybe 4 times a week for 3 or 4 miles? But I still love them and I'm buying another pair.

    I don't ever write reviews but I had to with these shoes. I had just bought a pair of Asics gel nimbus 12 and loved how soft and comfortable they were but they didn't help me with my problems when running uphill (achilles tendon/calves) so I decided to buy these. I had always went around everywhere barefooted when I was a kid so I figured why not start running like that. I loved how they looked when they came and when I put them on WOW! I couldn't believe how light and yet comfortable they were. I haven't had any problems running uphill anymore and they are so light I feel like I can fly! Only problem was when I went for my first run in them I didn't wear any socks and they rubbed against my achilles tendon on my left leg and got up in there pretty good so I'll be wearing socks when I run with them from now on. I love them so much I have been wearing them to school and everywhere else lol. Really recommend these for minimalist running!

    I've lost track of exactly how many of these Green Silence shoes we've bought for my husband over the past several years (beginning, of course, with the bright red/yellow ones that looked like Ronald McDonald shoes). These shoes have quickly become his favorites; and we now generally order 2-3 pairs at a time. He finds the shoes to be one step above a minimalist running shoe...comfortable, breathable, and extremely lightweight, and yet well-cushioned. He wears them for both training and races (marathons, halfs, and 10Ks). The lifespan of the shoe is pretty good also; he usually gets 300-400 miles out of each pair.

    bought as a summer short-distance shoe with the hope that if the did not work, they would be find for just running errands. Well, they work on both counts.
    Super friggin' light- amazingly light really. A little too much cushion for my taste, but pretty good overall. I trained in them a bunch and ran 5k race as well. so light and breathable that I can't justify wearing socks. I did end up with some minor blisters and hot spots because of this however. I've also used them for stream fishing and summer wear. Work great for this as well when flops aren't appropriate. Winner!

    I had major feet problems (Plantars Faciatis??) and a Stress Fracture from the inserts the Dr. gave me. Couldn't run more then 1/2 mile at times. Started with Vibrams and gradually worked into them. By making my foot and ankle stronger I have now started training for a Half Marathon. The feeling that I get when wearing the VFFs in grass I now get from wearing the Green Silence on pavement. Consistently running 10-13 miles three times a week in the Green Silences. These aren't as bare feeling as VFFs, but they are considered racing flats by some. Buy a half size up though, first pair I bought were great for 5 miles, but a half size up feel even better. Plenty of room in the toe box area so my toes don't get squished together. If you like toe splay, and the VFFs, you really should get a pair of these. Not affiliated with this site-- but check out the review at <...>. I'm already looking at getting a 3rd pair for a upcoming deployment to Afghanistan.

    Cons: They feel like a cardboard box when new. Require a short break in period. the laces suck! they are slick and come untied easily even when double knotted.

    Pros: Once broken in, best running shoe ever made! Light weight. Soft. Breathable. minimalist! Just can't say enough good things about them. Never an injury while wearing them.

    My husband is a 40+ year old ultra/reg marathon runner and puts in lots of miles per week. This is the third pair of Brooks Green Silence he has purchased. He rotates between 3 different pair of running shoes depending on the race/terrain/the day. These shoes are great for the environment and easy on the feet. They are not quite minimalist but nearly. Normally he wears a size 10.5-11 dress shoes and he wears an 11.5 in this running shoe.
