This is marketed as a CrossFit type shoe, but I am using it as my main running shoe. I have been moving to minimalist type shoes for the past couple years. I've found zero drop shoes to put too much strain on my calves. Two much drop and you can't effectively run with a mid-foot strike. This shoe gives a 3mm drop putting it in a good middle zone. I have very wide feet which is why I can't go with so many other minimalist type shoes. The wide version of this shoe works for me very well (I'm somewhere between and 2E and 4E). It is very lightweight. The support is good, which I would expect with a CrossFit shoe. The base cushioning is not that substantial, but you don't look for squishy shoes in minimalism. That said, I wish it had just a bit more cushioning to minimize the pounding that my forefoot takes on longer runs. Guess this is because it's meant for gym work and not road work. The tread covers the entirety of the bottom, which is a change from many minimalist shoes that leave softer cushioning exposed for rocks to poke up and through. I will need to report later on how they hold up over time, but for now I think I have found the right kind of shoe for me. The shoe is well made and I expect it will give me the mileage I desire.

I ordered a wide width and when they came, it said "standard fit" on the box. I do not know if they actually sell a wide width. If you really need a wide width for your toe box, this is not the shoe for you. New Balance has wide width that really is wide for my duck feet.

These were the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. However, I wear EEE and they were E and just not wide enough. Zappos policy allowed me to return them and but the brand I normally use.

These shoes feel very different, but are exceptionally comfortable. Zappos service was exceptional too. Order today, ship tomorrow, receive the next day. Wow!

I am very happy with these shoes so far. I fell in love with version 1 of New Balance minimus shoes, but subsequent versions didn't work as well primarily because the fabric allowed my toes to poke through very quickly. I have been looking for a lightly more substantial, structured minimus-style shoe. This one seems to fit the bill. Thay are stable, light weight, and wide enough across the metatarsal.
