So lightweight it hardly feels like having shoes on. Super-flexible sole gives adequate ground feel for a sole of this thickness (10mm). Sole is not waterproof, so don't be surprised if stepping in a shallow puddle gets your foot wet.

    I have been wearing size 7 New Balance shoes for years, but I took the advice of ordering 1/2 size larger. I felt like they were big floppy clown shoes.

    The very good news is that was a very easy process to return them and get the size 7 shoes. I have been wearing them to the gym and they work well on the treadmill and the weight machines.

    I personally found these to be "true to size" when worn without socks. I'm a little on the small end of a size 13, and found these 13s to be just a little big when worn without socks. As others have said, the outsole is extremely light and has gaps where you can see straight through to the insole. The upper is incredibly light, and takes getting used to. It is quite literally see-through for much of the shoe, and while the plastic feels odd against your skin at first, it is very breatheable and so flexible it starts to feel like a slipper after a while. Critical areas have a thicker nylon material for reinforcement (the black parts of the upper) but there is no leather, rubber, or webbing reinforcement in the upper at all. I am returning my pair, though, as my use will be for hiking and I like my hiking shoes to last for a few years, and I wouldn't expect these to. For trail running, where you are probably getting new shoes every season, these would be pretty nice.

    Got these for my son, had to send the first pair back due to sizing issues was 1/2 to 1 full size larger than expected. He usually wears a 14 in NB but a 13 was perfect. Thanks to STP the exchange was quick and absolutely painless. He finds the shoes comfortable, doesn't think he will run in them much since they are so light and he has to run in the military in boots - doesn't want to get too used to lack of weight. Nice to have a pair of shoes made for no socks - decreases time guys have to get socks out of the mound of laundry. And as always can't beat STP prices, add to that a barn burner and they are practically giving these things away.

    these are comfortable and sturdy and can be worn with or without socks. The best part is how lightweight they are. The only negative thing I would say is that you shouldn't run over any sharp rocks or sticks as the sole has spaces between the rubber that could easily be pierced.

    Found these to be very comfortable, use primarily for gym workouts and for cycling. Heel and ankle fit more like a climbing shoe, roomy in the toes.
