Great shoe out of the box. Took them on a 7mile run, for the first run. They felt great. This is my 4th pair of minimius shoes, and i think i like them the best. I have 5fingers, merrel, and brooks. These are going to hold up.
Wish they have more colors cause I would definitely order another pair.

    Nice fit, great grip. They don't ventilate as well as other similar shoes and so far they have stained every pair of socks I have worn!

    I bought these shoes as I'm getting into minimal running. I really like the five finger type minimal running shoes, but on some days they are difficult to put on. So, I decided to give these shoes a try. While they are not the same experience as the five finger running experience they are way better than the traditional big cushiony running shoe. The fabric is also a "winter run" material...so good on rainy days.

    Got Minimus Zero's and they were too hard, so decided to try these. Much nicer, they fit like a glove, you can wear socks or not and they have just the right amount of cushioning. Work out great on the treadmill and outside

    I love barefoot running shoes and I just needed another pair. I love how these look but I ignored all the reviews. The reviews are true when they say they do not fit right in the back. They are too loose around the ankle so it rubs wrong. I like how they look so much I thought about keeping them and wearing socks but that just defeats the purpose of barefoot running shoes so they have been returned.

    I had to return these. Seemed like a nice light weight shoe, felt snuggley..which is good. But the toe box runs at a slant from the big toe to the baby one. It is not rounded like a noraml shoe. I always buy my athletic shoes a half size bigger. My poor second toe was scrunched. So I sent them back for a full size bigger. The second toe was fine, but then the third toe was scrunched. In both shoes my big toe touched the end. I finally gave up. Both have been sent back.
