These shoes are not very durable. Mine got a hole in the sole after only a few months. I was just reminded of this from an email telling me I ordered them one year ago. I had to but new shoes 4 months ago, but I wore them with holey soles for about a month.

I've had these for a few weeks now, and they continue to amaze me with the lightweight comfort! It really is shocking how light these things are! I've had several compliments from guys and girls about these shoes. They go great with blue jeans or khaki pants and solid color t-shirts or casual collared shirts. My only gripe is a mistake on my part. I ordered an 11 (same as my pair of Onitsuka Tigers), but they feel just a tiny bit too small. However, it wasn't enough of an issue to have to send them back. I just have to lace them up a tad looser than usual and all is kosher. Overall, these things rock!

These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn--that is, after making one easy change. I wear these without the insoles. I have a wide foot, and I find that without the insoles, these fit perfectly. I run in these without issue, but I have a fairly efficient gait to begin with. Please never stop making these!

Great shoe for the cost. Comfortable and nice looking. Very similar to all these "minimalist" shoes, but a lower cost. I have higher arches and my feet love these shoes.

This is by far one of my best purchases I've in a very long time. First of all I would like to thank Zappos for their excellent service in delivering the shoes. I ordered it on Thursday around noon and the shoe arrived next day evening (and that too was free shipping). As for the shoes: Pros: 1. Looks awesome (I have a similar shoe from an expensive brand. But this one is half the price and looks all the better) 2. Extremely light on feet. 3. Can be worn both as a casual wear and for semi-casual looks. 4. Fits true to size (initially the shoe will be a little tighter on the ankle but if the adjust the laces it fits perfectly). Cons: Can't think of any as of now. All in all, I would definitely recommend this product to anyone.

Awesome fit, awesome price. I read others experiences and had to check them out for myself. I was not disappointed! I wear these minimalist shoes for lifting during Crossfit, very light but would not recommend for long distance running. Everything else CF related...money.

Minimalist. Low-profile. Exactly what I was looking for! The sole is a little stiff (compared to Converse All Stars, my other minimalist sneaker), but still comfortable. I you wear a size 10 in running shoes; a size 10 in these will be fine. They're sized like running shoes (though I can't imagine distance running in them).

These shoes are awesome, especially when you put the yellow laces in them. Everyone I walk by notices theses slick shoes. They feel a lot like running shoes, I think they would be pretty good for Parkour.

It's the kind of shoe that eludes you to the point it seems almost intentional. Comfortable, breathable, low profile, and size 14? Well, I found it. I recommend the Bullet to anyone who, well, wears shoes.

These shoes are super low profile. They have no ankle support. They feel more like slippers than shoes. They are extremely comfortable and lightweight so I will keep them, but I don't think I would buy these shoes again.

I am originally from Minnesota. Upon my relocation to Texas and the ridiculous summer heat we have to deal with here, light, breathable shoes are a necessity of life because I hate flip flops. The Saucony Bullet is a godsend in that regard. They're light, they breathe, and they look pretty nice to boot. The shoes may have a few problems for a few people. The Bullets offer very little arch support and sole cushion. I have flat feet so, to me, these actually feel better than most shoes. Also, I usually wear size 11. I found an 11.5 Saucony fits me perfectly. The patent leather (AKA plastic) logo on the side is sort of ugly before it gets dirty as well. Being so lightweight, the Bullet may feel a bit cheap at first. Wrong. These shoes are actually some of the most durable shoes I have ever owned. I'm actually on here to order a second pair. My current pair is still together, but just starting to fall apart after about 2 years of near constant abuse. Great mileage for a pretty low priced shoe. I kind of glazed over an important issue. These shoes look great. VERY low profile. Saucony also gives some unique color choices. Obviously not for everyone, but I like my feet to have a little color. So if you want a lightweight, durable shoe and don't need a whole lot of support, give these a shot.

When I received the Saucany in the mail I did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to find the forefoot to completely unsupported and the rearfoot with some support. These are great transitional shoes for going to minimalists.

These shoes are amazing! I took them to my first ever trip to Disney Land with the niece And nephew. I tell you what, I was on my feet for four days straight and my pups were doing just fine by day five. I am tuff on shoes and usually go with a skate shoe, so this was out of my normal relm of shoe choice, yet they are holding up very well and super koosh to boot.

I am in love with these shoes for everyday errands and running (not literally) around the city. They're easy to get on and off and pretty comfy; although I did replace the inserts with some upgraded ones I put in all my shoes. Love the color and plan to be wearing 'em all spring and summer.

A very good shoe for martial arts. Has a flat front sole, and the rear sole is a little elevated. Very lightweight. The product itself feels great, though it looks cheap. The Saucony stripe is plastic and looks like it'd wear out really fast.

I absolutely love this shoe! I am actually a woman with a foot size of 11 and also a wider width than usual. I purchased a size 9.5 and they were a perfect fit. I like that these are slimming and light and not bulky at all. And can pass as a ladies shoe! I wouldn't recommend these for long term running at all, but they are the perfect skinny jean shoe! Definitely will be on my list for a long time!
