    Very good fit. I tried a Merrell minimalist shoe that ended up slipping on heel and blistered me. This is much better fit.

    I usually wear a 10.5-11 men's runner, and I ordered 11, which is great.

    I am still adjusting to minimalist shoe (very good advice I got to do short distances as muscles adjust), but so far, very good shoe.

    I think the other review here is applicable only to the person who wrote it. I found the fit excellent. the sole is a little wider than most (I have a size D shoe), which I found very good for pronation control. In most shoes, my foot falls off the inside edge of the sole. In these, I couldn't feel the edges of the sole, which was very nice, and rare. I found the minimal shaping inside the shoe to do wonders for my plantar fascitis, as well. I will never go back to shoes with an arch inside. These are much more comfortable. I was also surprised at the other review complaining about room in the toe box. As I mentioned before, these shoes are a little wider all around that all other shoes I tried on at the store. I like this shoe, I got it for $60 on clearance, and it looks good too.

    I recently bought a pair of Merrell's trail gloves and they felt great right out of the box. I ordered these in hopes of finding similar comfort with less "athletic" look. I was disappointed. These shoes did not have enough room in the toe bed (a must for minimalist shoes!) and the sole was too thick on the outside edge, forcing my foot to roll inward. It also put pressure in other odd places along the bottom of my foot. Overall uncomfortable.
