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'd also recommend: New Balance Minimalist, Saucony Kinvara

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.

I have owned these shoes for about 10 months now and would buy another pair in a heartbeat. I am not gentle with these shoes at all and they have held up great. For the last 10 months, I have been wearing these shoes to the gym and putting them through their paces. These shoes have taken whatever I dish out, which usually involves heavy kettlebell lifts and body weight fitness, with the occasional olympic lifting. Normally my toes wear through mesh shoes very quickly, but the only thing showing signs of wear is the toe protector.

Purchased this shoe as a gift for my brother. He wears a 11.5 wide, and it must be a true wide. He weighs 300lbs so the shoe must be comfortable, walkable and not tight. The European sizing had me concerned but went with the wide sizing and knew Zappos return policy was top notch if it didn't fit. He couldn't be happier, is always wearing them and he says his 20+ y/o sons are asking where they can get a pair!

I like these shoes a lot! They are a bit on the snug side due to "precision fit" which takes some getting used to and my feet look even smaller in them, but they are very comfortable and have decent arch support.
