I use this shoe from trail running to long approaches to walls. On the approaches I am generally carrying a 50 lb pack. The MT20s have most excellent traction, mainly due to the Vibram sole. They are very lightweight and super breatheable.

    Very light, comfortable, if a little large (too large for me to wear sockless, but not a big deal). Have only tested them in the gym and on roads so far, but I like them quite a bit there. As mentioned, seems to run large, at least compared to other companies (Keene, Merrell, Teva). Normally I order a 12 and have a snug, comfortable fit, but my foot is a bit loose in these at 12. Needed some breakin (which is unusual for minimalist shoes, I've found). The material directly behind the toe was bending in a way that caused some discomfort during initial wear. Faded after 2 days of general use. These are a close second favorite shoe now after the breakin, plan to take them out to the trail soon.

    These shoes were well built and held up on a recent multi day hike. They are very lightweight with minimmal bottom of the foot protection. The only odd things I found was that the area in the Ball of the foot is very wide. Almost like they we wide pattern shoes rather than a standard "D" width. Might be good if your foot swells during running but for short work the were wide to the point of being loose.

    Have 2 pair of NB leather minimalist shoes that I really like for cool weather wear and thought these would be good for summer wear/running. Really wanted to like them but don't. The upper is a hard finish slick material. It wrinkles rather than conforming to barefoot or light socks and is uncomfortable. The second problem with this model is that the tongue slides off to the side. I have a very high instep but this model doesn't have a loop on the tongue to keep it in position and the slick finish on the fabric causes it to side to the side within 30 minutes. Finally this model is designed with a more pointed toe. I like minimalist shoes because they generally have a box toe and this model's pointed shape causes the toe to flex more on push off and I find it less comfortable. These are going into the donation bag and maybe someone else will like them better.
