Nice alternative to Five Fingers

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Straying from 5 fingers from Southwestern US on Thursday, September 13, 2012
This is a fast and lightweight, minimalist flat for the same running style as the Vibram 5 Fingers; it has no heel elevation and a few millimeter thick EVA foam sole like a Spira racing flat. Changing from the 5 Fingers, it runs in a familiar way, and is comfortable like a minimalist slipper. The shoes I have felt 1/2 size small - there is a small edge bead where the upper meets the footbed that I can feel on my big and little toes. No blisters, but if you order a 1/2 size larger you will not feel that, just the cushy bottom of the shoe. Comfortable and feels fast; the EVA sole may wear down faster over time compared to the 5 fingers.
