Very comfortable and lightweight, however it lacks the ability to tighten. If you plan on running up a lot of hills this is not the best shoe. However if you plan to stay in the gym on flat ground doing some cross training, then you should be OK. Super convenient and easy to just slip on and go. If you are doing something with a lot of agility type moves, this may not be the best shoe for you. It's best for exercising in a controlled environment rather than sports and outdoors. Also a good casual shoe for running errands around town.

I'd also recommend: Nike, UnderArmor

I absolutely love this shoe! I love feeling like I am standing on a cloud, and this shoe offers that. Also, I like a minimal feel when I run, but I am not ready to go "Vibram" style. This is a great in-between for running and general cross training. I also teach aerobics in this shoe and love the feeling, although those with weaker ankles will obviously not feel comfortable with that. I do think next time I would order one size below my regular Ryka/sneaker size. They stretched a little on me after a longer run (3 miles). Definitely get this shoe!

I am a thin flip flop (Havaianas) girl but I purchased these when my doctor recommended I wear athletic shoes everyday for tendinitis in my knee. I love this shoe! As opposed to typical athletic shoes, these are incredibly lightweight, flexible, breathable, and comfortable, with just the right amount of sole support. I love how I can slip them on barefoot without messing with laces. I wore them shopping for 3 hours straight out of the box without any issues whatsoever. I typically wear a 6.5 or 7. I ordered both sizes and kept the 6.5 in black/hot pink. They look great with capri leggings and long athletic type jackets. The grey color looked too masculine. So glad I found the Havaiana version of an athletic shoe!

I got these after months of searching for a good kickboxing gym shoe. They are awesome! The first day they feel tight or even too small but that goes away after 4 times wearing but if you hate tight shoes I would go 1/2 size bigger. To my surprise they are also great for running moderate distance; however, I wouldn't call them running shoes.

I'd also recommend: saucony

The most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. I am on my feet 7.5 hours a day working Assisted Living and my legs/feet feel refreshed all day. I highly recommend this shoe - so comfortable I bought 1/2 size bigger than normal because it was the last pair and I had to have them. Feels like my foot is hugged and shrink wrapped (for lack of a better term). You will not regret this purchase!
