Great Shoes
August 31, 2011

I have only had them for 2 weeks and they are already my favorite pair of workout shoes. They are super comfortable and work for everything I do in CF. I would recommend these to anyone and would buy them again.

A Unique Experience
May 30, 2012

Minimus shoes are sensational! Since I have started to wear minimalist footwear my arches have become higher! These shoes strengthen your feet, and give you a more natural gait. Whether for running or for daily use these shoes allow you to feel like you are in control of how you step, not your footwear.

Pros: lightweight, confortable, stylish, quick drying

Not so comfy as I thought...
October 12, 2011

This is my second Vibram soled pair. I intended to use it at work since I do a lot of walking. My knees hurt everytime I wear them for more than an hour. I prefer the Merrell barefoot pair I have and never had knee problems with it. This pair is a little too wide, too. I have small and narrow feet...

Favorite running shoes
July 30, 2012

These are my favorite running shoes--I tried them on last year in a running store and purchased them immediately. This is my second pair, which I am purchasing because I can't imagine running in anything else. If you like a minimalistic running shoe, this one is an excellent option--this shoe is lightweight and the material is breathable (essential for muggy summer days). I have used them on short and long runs, on city sidewalks and on trails, and they have held up very well throughout each use. These shoes have a nice sole--it's not heavy-duty, but I feel safe when running over rocky or gravelly terrain. They are cushioned lightly, but in the right places (such as the heel), and although the insole is spartan I found it to be comfortable. I would recommend transitioning to these shoes gradually if you're not primarily using a minimalist shoe--perhaps starting with distances of 1/2 - 1 mile at a time to allow yourself to acclimate to the difference in support and stride (as it promotes a forefoot strike). I found that the shoe fits true-to-size to a little bit large--I wear an 8.5 to a 9 in women's running shoes and opted for an 8.5 in these. I plan to use this shoe in my upcoming November marathon.

Pros: lightweight, breathes well, comfortable, cute, great sole

Seems to be good
August 29, 2012

I bought these to use for Crossfit on the review of a friend and they seem to work fine. I'm not sure I would feel comfortable running longer periods in them though as the support is not what I am used to. Toes are nice and roomy and the overall look is great.
