Verified Buyer Reviewed by Satisfied step-dad from Ohio on Tuesday, August 30, 2016So far so good. She has worn them in 2 meets and she has no issues. Shoes and transaction were perfect. We did size up 1 size since other reviews said they ran small.
Reviewed by john wyss from Pro Infusion on Monday, August 29, 2016My girlfriend wears an 8-8.5. At 8.5 I expected these to be large. They are wide, but the length is more akin to 7.5.

Reviewed by Average foot from Tx on Sunday, August 21, 2016These are minimalist shoes. They are incredibly light, really comfortable. The soles are made from the same material as Crocs, so the soles are extra squishy and soft. The drawback of this is that if you wear them on uneven surfaces, you feel the rocks. So they're made for the gym and for flat tracks, smooth and even floors. This limitation is compounded by the uppers, which offer no stability whatsoever.
I sent them back because I wanted a more versatile indoor gym/ outdoor shoe with a tad more structure and support. Also, the bump on the back of the heel was enormous. Bigger than the photos allude, about an inch, which is a bit much on a size 7. It looked rather ridiculous and I think they would throw off my running stride anyway.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Emily from Florida on Friday, February 26, 2016The shoes didn't seem well constructed. They seemed flimsy and didn't seem to have a lot of support. They were big on the sides and seemed to run short. I sent them back. I love NB and ended of finding abother pair that worked.
