Excellent All-Around Minimal Shoe I purchased these shoes intending to wear them primarily as a casual day-to-day shoes for walking, hiking and daily living. I wasn't sure my body was up to using such a minimal shoe for actual trail running. As a casual shoe, they are generally pretty good. I do feel the laces are too long --- both the loops and the tag ends skim the ground when I tie the shoes as tight as I like. I also find that the soles are so thin that some of my pants tend to drag on the ground and I have to cuff them slightly. They are light, not too warm and were comfortable walking around town, shopping and just hanging around. I scrambled along a rocky Great Lakes shoreline and never felt like I was about to slide off the rocks into the chilly waters. I did go for a 3-mile, mixed surface run to see how they fared. I adapted to the minimal feel of the shoes within 100 yards of beginning the run. There is a little more jarring on tarmac, but it is mostly negligible. On dirt and gravel paths, they are very comfortable. On rocky, root-infested singletrack --- including some wet leaves and pine needles --- they felt very sure-footed. There were even a few wet boardwalks that the soles gripped tenaciously. The "baby head" rocks in the trail required a lot more effort on my part to stay stable on, as these shoes seem to lack the firm soles of other trail running shoes I've used in the past. Since this was expected, I wouldn't count it against the shoes. As a casual, everyday shoe, I would give them 4 stars. As a hiking or trail running shoe, I would give them 5 -- as long as you are expecting the support and cushioning of a minimalist shoe. October 6, 2014
Excellent Shoe Fits amazingly well, hardly weighs anything, and they dry out very quickly. Also packs very well. I always take them with me when I travel. July 15, 2014
