Rated5out of5byfromFixed my fasciitisI couldn't run in my heavier, protective shoes. I started to get major heel pain. My physical therapist had me switch to a minimalist shoe. That worked very well.

Rated2out of5byfromPoor fitting shoes, but light weightI run 6 miles on trail conditions 5-6 days a week. I purchased these shoes to replace my Brooks Pure Connect (which were great) because I really like running in a light-weight, minimalist shoe. These shoes are certainly light and minimalist, but I found that they did not fit well. First, the sizing is about a full size larger than what I am used to. Second, the end of the shoe (where the toes are) does not have a curve like most shoes with a longer area where the big toe is located. Instead, this shoe has a "u" shape curve, which I found caused my toes to shift around. Despite the name "Road Glove", these shoes definitely do not fit like one.
