These shoes are fantastic. I went up a half size as I always do for athletic shoes (from my usual 8.5 to 9), and they fit just as expected. There is not much arch support, but that is to be expected in barefoot running shoes--less padding, more foot muscle-building to cushion footfalls as nature intended. There are few if any seams on the inside of the shoe, so I believe they would be quite comfortable, even for sockless use. My last pair of NB Minimus shoes had a 4mm heel-to-toe drop, and to be completely honest, it is taking me longer to adjust to running in these shoes than I expected. Apparently that 4mm drop is more substantial than I thought. That said, I am quite happy about it, because I can tell my feet are building up additional strength. I am incredibly happy about the style of these shoes. I purchased the blue and white version. The design and colors shown in the photographs are very accurate, so if you, like me, are attracted to these shoes partially because they look a bit like a ocean waves and a tentacled undersea creature, you will be extremely happy with the way they look in person. If a mermaid wore running shoes, she would wear these. Buy without hesitation and enjoy!

LOVE these. I use them for short distance running (less than 5 miles) and crossfit style training. The zero drop in the back is an adjustment so make sure you break them in first, otherwise you'll feel it in your Achilles Tendon. They have great support for being a minimalistic shoe and the sole is very grippy even on wet surfaces. My 3rd pair of this particular style - my last ones lasted me 6 months of almost daily use.

I love these shoes. My first pair was defective and the appliques on the side of one shoe were peeling off. Zappos always has the best customer service and took care of it quick and easy with a replacement pair and zero hassles. Thanks! These are super light and comfortable, very different and cute looking and come in great colors. I try to only wear zero drop shoes and was very glad to find these.

I love the way these shoes look! They are a bit less supportive than I thought reading the description, but that's fine for me. I wouldn't consider them a transitional shoe to minimalist running, they are very bare. When I first got them, I thought I needed a half size smaller, but I ended up keeping them. I would have liked to try on the smaller shoe, but I've done a few longer runs with no slipping, so this could be the way they are supposed to fit.

I've been having problems with overuse injuries, and these shoes make my feet feel as though they'd never happened at all. They're very comfortable, supportive, and make exercise a joy again.
