I picked up some Ghost 4's and started running again. Everything felt great except that I felt weighed down by all the rubber cushion. By this point I started focusing on forefoot running, so I figured most of my pain was my form change. It was true, but running in the shoes felt a lot more cumbersome. Plus, all the cushion was in the wrong areas for my newly-acquired form (all in the heel). It was strange, considering this was the shoe that was recommended to me.
After a week or two of running low mileage, I felt pain that I can only describe as my foot and leg being pulled apart from each other. I wasn't aware of what it could be at the time, but after some research, the location of pain looked like it could be shin splints. I tried running some trails, and I felt a little better, but still felt weighed down by the shoes. The shoes were exacerbating my situation of form change, even though the shoes felt OK for the most part. In the end, they gave me too much confidence.
I ditched the Ghost 4's (great shoes, but not for my style and foot type) and tried barefoot running and felt immensely better. I then started looking for some trail shoes shortly after.
Skipping over debates of shoes, I finally went with the MT110s. I knew I wanted something minimal, but also a jack of all trades (just in case I want to mix it up).
I got them, laced them up and hit the trails. I went 2.25 miles feeling free and light with plenty room for my feet to feel natural (no socks needed). What an experience!Read more ›
Incredible shoe! The rock plate and heel cup made a huge difference! The traction was far superior and the synthetic upper sheds water and wipes clean after each use, though it can easily snag branches if you're not careful. Just stop running immediately if you catch on something. The shoe drains very fast and dries fast aswell. I run straight through small streams, not even bothering to rock hop, and just 30 mins or so later during the run the shoes are pretty much dry.
Going sockless feels fine, without any irritating lining or what not. No blisters yet. Though I did get hot spots around ankle were the more supportive heel cup rubs, but that has decreased after breaking them in a bit. The only real negative I've got is the foam mid sole. It has completely broken down after 30 miles or so. Not a problem because I'm mostly a forefoot striker, but the tread on the rest of the shoe is so awesome it's a shame it was not continued througout. I realize they cut shoe weight and increased flexibility by using foam there, but I would prefer the extra ounce or two as it would make the shoe more durable.Read more ›

These shoes were excellent, but wore out fast.

4 stars only, as the plastic around the shoe rips apart very quickly.Published 23 months ago by C. Lee
As advertised, not for me. Definitely a light shoe, which means thin upper.Published 24 months ago by Bryan Ketter
