A little about me: 5'11, 175lbs, 25 years old, run 10-15 miles per week, mild pronator, have had plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonitis, and have very wide (4E) feet, specially in the toe box.

First the good: I LOVE the small 4MM heel to toe drop. It's great for those looking to transition into minimalist shoes, and great for anyone that has had problems with their hips due to a forward lean in the pelvic bone (which is why I look for small heel to toe drops). The cushioning is great and definitely sufficient for short runners. The shoe is made for neutral runners, but I haven't felt like they provide too little of support.

The bad: They have a very narrow toe box for a 4E shoe! I would have expected a wide shoe to have more room for the big toe. The narrow big toe area forces my foot over in the shoe, so part of my foot hangs off of the outside of the shoe. Not terribly uncomfortable, and I'm definitely able to walk, run, etc., but the life of the shoe will theoretically be drastically decreased.

I personally just sucked it up (as most people with wide feet have to do), because these were the only 4E shoes with such a low toe to heel drop, and I definitely don't regret my purchase, but if you too have a really wide food in the toe box area, I would try them on at a local running store before purchasing.
