I bought these for my son that is in cross country. He has over pronated feet and when I read the description I thought it said it was for helping that, but they did not help him. He says they feel fine, but he did get a heal spur. Need to be more careful the next time.

it does run a little small, not much though. i wear an 8 1/2 and that's what i ordered. it fits a bit snug but not too uncomfortable to wear. i justwear thin socks and they are fine. lightweight, good support, i would buy again.

These shoes are my first experience with minimalist shoes. As I have upped my training miles and pace, I started suffering shin splints and other leg muscle pain. I bought these shoes to try to get back to a Brooks shoe, and hopefully find releif for my overtraining aches and pains.
The shoes are tight across the top of the foot, may be my inexperience with these type of light-weight shoes, but with some adjustment to the lacing they fit just fine.
Most immprotantly, my shin splints did clear up with these shoes. The cushioning and natural stride have been a great benefit.
I will seek another pair of these shoes, or latest equivalent once I wear these out.

This is my second pair of these shoes - they were my gateway to minimalist running shoes. They are neutral shoes that are very minimal while at the same time falling short of a true barefoot shoe. They have a nice layer padding in the soles which is mainly where they differ from a true barefoot shoe and they also have a 4mm drop. I generally prefer a 4mm drop in my trail shoes and a zero drop in my road shoes but it's not a big deal for me. The uppers are very breathable and the shoe is very light. The main downside of these shoes is they are a bit narrow (and I have normal width feet) and not as wide in the toe box as for example most Merrell shoes. All that being said I just bought my second pair.

I purchased BPC shoes for women and loved them! unfortunately I was not able to find another pair in my size in women's shoes so I searched in mens and found that they (men) were a little slower in purchasing this fantastic shoe so I did the conversion chart and tried on my husbands and purchased two pair of shoes. They not only fit perfect they look great. I have a physical injury and I need all of the help I can to walk daily and these shoes are my ticket. I will continue to buy them and shop Derailed.
Thank you for Derailing me! My whole experience with Derailed was awesome....delivery was quick and both items perfect,,,and of course the savings were fantastic. I will be shopping for more bargains with

The only thing I would change about this shoe is the color. Otherwise its one of the best road shoes - if not THE best road shoe - I have ever worn. I bought another pair on STP after a week of running in them. Watch some of the YouTube reviews of this shoe for a more in depth review - there are some good ones. Just came back here to give the PureConnect a thumbs up, and say "Thank You" to STP for yet another amazing deal!
