Awesome shoes! I'd willingly pay twice the asking price for these. These shoes look great (I got the green) and fit perfect. They feel as if they are weightless on my foot, the mesh is so flexible and breathable, it truly is the ideal minimalist sneaker, for those looking for something as close as possible to barefoot without having to wear any funny toe-shoes. Id perfect a little more rubber on the outsole, walking on tile or wood surfaces gets poor traction, but other than that, theyre the best sneakers ive ever purchased.

Oh how I wanted to keep these shoes! There is nothing to them. They are light as air and have just enough cushioning on the heel that you are not hard slamming on the pavement. They are really more like slippers than shoes, and I love them for that. The soles also have some fairly hard rubber grippers on the ball that will give them lots of wear. There was nothing in these shoes to get in my way. And the colors - rainbow numbers - how perfectly me. But, the darned thing is really narrow. There is plenty of foot volume, so it was comfortable enough, but my foot was wider than the sole and bulged over the side. I know from experience that will not work for me after a few miles, so these went back. If there were a wide version, it would be my perfect shoe.

I'd also recommend: merril vapor glove, pearl izumi N0

Most bah-dass running shoes yet. If you have narrow, high arches, these shoes are a perfect fit. Super light and super comfortable.

Diggin' these babies! Great last for those with a need for a wider toe box. Between these and Innovate, they got me covered. Not for gravel, ok on sand, golf courses and the mean streets are where thes shine.

I'd also recommend: Innovate

This is the only shoe I know of that comes as close to fitting like socks on my feet (in the form of a shoe). This 3 oz. shoe is very flexible and comfortable making my entire foot feel as if it were in a velvet glove.
