Rated5out of5byRunningFanfromSolid shoeI got these a little over a month ago and I love them. I am a big fan of the minimalist shoe. These didn't require any break in time. After about 2 weeks of having them I ran a marathon. They didn't cause any blistering or other foot issues. I run in them almost everyday. I have about 130 miles in them with no wear and tear. They do seem to keep in odor, however using some foot powder or spraying them down would help fix that. Maybe my feet are just super stinky. Either way a great shoe.

Rated5out of5byBlue SteelfromFavorite Road Runners!I am an avid runner and triathlete averaging about 40 miles per week. I am all about the barefoot movement, but live in an area were there are many hazards that make running without protection very undesirable. These shoes provide the right amount of protection and traction without sacrificing barefoot feel.
I purchased these in march and have run two marathons, several Olympic distance triathlons, and a half ironman and the only sign of wear is that they are a bit stanky. I highly reccomend these shoes and plan on purchasing another pair when they actually wear out.
The only complaint is that I develop blisters if I go sock-less for any distance over 5k.
