What an amazing running shoe. I trained for and ran 2 marathons in the last 45 days with them. Amazing. Light, minimalistic enough so you can feel the road, good stability, and just enough cushioning to keep you comfortable in 20+ miles runs. Highly recommend to any runner. The only thing I didn't like as much were the shoe strings. They are not elastic at all, so tend to untie if you are not careful. I still wouldn't change my 5 star rating because of it.

I'd also recommend: Pearl Izumi, Craft, Icebreaker, SmartWool

Love this shoe! And so do the runners around me. They are comfortable and light but based on other reviews I did go larger and that was the right move.

I'd also recommend: Asics

I love these shoes. This will be the 6th pair of Brooks Racer ST's that I've run in (5Ks up to marathons). They are very comfortable and I get less blisters on my toes after long runs in these. I do not like the shoe laces, as other people have said the come undone easier, but I've found a way to tie them that they stay tight. (I also wouldn't give the rating one less star because of this). Now I normally wear a 7.5 (Womans) in running shoes but for these I wear an 8 Womans (6.5 in the shoe).

Love this shoe! I'm a nurse so these shoes have seen many miles. I get a lot of compliments. I really only have one qualm; the outer part of the toe box is too narrow for my feet, which hurts my fourth and last toes. Otherwise, perfect amount of cushion and arch support.

My husband really likes tennis shoes that draw some attention. He has an awesome pair of retro Adidas that were starting to wear out, so when I saw these I had to buy them for him and he LOVES them. He said they are super lightweight and very comfortable. He gets a lot of compliments on them, too.
