Good minimalist shoe

Reviewed by Steve from Maryland on Friday, July 15, 2016
Just wore out my PureConnect 3s and bought these to replace them. Honestly don't like what they did with the redesign. The tongue is no longer affixed to one side of the upper and wanders around during running. As another reviewer said it's also now too long and cuts into the front of my ankle. The laces don't seem to stay as tight either. The PureConnect 3s fit like the proverbial glove while these seem looser all around, except for the toe box which is still a little tight. They're also slightly longer. I usually wear a 10 in most shoes and my 3s were 10 1/2. Probably could have gone back to a 10 and been fine. Enough for the gripes, because overall this is still a very good shoe for a forefoot/mid-foot runner. If you're a heel striker, you should look elsewhere.
