Product Description

Reebok was founded for one of the best reasons possible: athletes wanted to run faster. So in the 1890s, Joseph William Foster made some of the first known running shoes with spikes in them. By 1895, he was in business making shoes by hand for top runners; and before long his fledgling company, J.W. Foster and Sons, developed an international clientele of distinguished athletes.

    These shoes are the most comfortable shoes you could ever imagine. They are like a great relationship. Supportive, hugs you close, durable, gentle touch and stays together. I put them through hell and they were still there in the morning.
    That may sound funny but it is absolutely true. You have to experience them to believe it. Unreal. Nirvana with soles.
    They will put you in Shangri-La la land. Buy them, then thank me profusely later.

    240 Lbs guy with a history of gout. Numerous problems with shoes fitting okay in the beginning and then aggravating my gout affected toes/feet. So far (three weeks) I'm LOVING these. Super light, great cushioning especially around the "ball" of my foot. Love it.

    These shoes are super comfortable, I wear mine without socks and it's like having nothing on. 5 stars based on comfort and support both for standing all day and for running.

    Pros:
    Comfortable for standing, running, with or without socks
    Cool looking
    True to size

    Cons:
    If you have any gravel paths in your life you will be forever digging debris out of the tread.

    These are nice and they fit well but make sure to size down a half because the toe is pointy. If you don't it will feel like you're wearing clown shoes. If you are a 10.5, get a 10 and so forth. One thing about suede though is that it gets stained and ruined quickly. If you go out in the rain with these, it will show. So if you want to make it look like you have been doing a lot of running, then get these shoes because the outsides will wear quickly. IF you want to have clean shoes for a long time, these are probably not for you.
    Note: I got the black sneakers but the laces are dark blue, just so you know.

    EDIT: When I first got the product, I rated it 4 stars. I now (3 weeks later) rate it 2 stars after I have gotten to know it. I bought these shoes because they looked cool. If you want to do the same, I recommend you reconsider. They are quite uncomfortable. Do not believe what you hear about these shoes being barefoot running shoes, that is not true. The concept of barefoot running means you run on the balls of your feet (toes) rather than landing on your heals. These shes make it quite difficult to do that because the heels are so thick that you have no choice to land on them. They are also not barefoot because they are so rigid while barefoot shoes are supposed to be flexible. Furthermore, the rigidity of the top part in the back slices into your Achilles's, tearing your skin. If you try to run barefoot, your toes will get smushed in the front and will hurt. I recommend getting the Vibrams made by New Ballance, they are a lot more comfortable.

    Edit 1 month later: The shoes are wearing out fast. The bottoms are starting to wear and the seam on the side near the pinkie toe is beginning to come undone. They have not been heavily used.

    I have these and a few other light weight runners (NB 730's, NB 890's, Vibram five fingers, and Sacouny Kinvara 2's). Out of the 5 types of shoes I would rate the Reebok's 4th just ahead of the five fingers.

    They do fit true to size (for me a size 12) and are very light weight. The suede takes a bit of getting used to and is very thin. I can feel the laces thru the tongue due to how thin the tongue is and if I don't have them adjusted just right they can cause discomfort when running. For everyday use they are comfortable though. When pushing athletically, either crossfit type training or running, they just lack the fit and feel of the other 3 traditional models I have mentioned. When running I can somewhat feel the tread pattern on soles under my forefoot (I am 6'3" 210 so my size/weight may be causing that and a lighter runner may not notice that effect).

    I do like Reeboks in general and will state again that for normal daily wear these are very nice looking and very comfortable. If you are looking for a lighter weight runner with minimalist characteristics, I think the Kinvara line (you can find good deals on the 2's right now) is superior. The NB 890's are also much better, but are move a bit further away from a minimalist design.

    I purchased these shoes for everyday use, not for running, and they are great. These shoes are extremely flexible, allowing your foot to work the way it has evolved to. The sole's cushioning is excellent and the upper is soft. The man-made suede of the upper appears to be easy to clean; just an old toothbrush should be needed. If that's not good enough, a bit of water should help too. I can't really speak to how long they last, as I've worn them only three days.

    UPDATE: I've had these shoes for awhile now and have lowered my review from 5 to 3 stars. This is because the large difference in thickness between the shoe's heel and forefoot is so large too much weight is shifted onto the ball of the wearer's foot. I found that the ball of my foot, especially where my toes attach, would become sore after only a few hours in this shoe. A flatter profile would more evenly distribute the wearer's weight and avoid this issue. These shoes have largely been retired and are used only when I don't anticipate being on my feet much.
