The shoes are nice, I am usually a 7 1/2, but decided on the 8 which was perfect. I used this shoe for a 30 minute walk/run session. I gave it 3 stars because my feet are not made for over pronator type shoes, if you are an under pronator (high arched) do not buy this shoe. I had to take out the sole and put in my own sole to use this. I ended up buy another model just yesterday.
