Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars

Price Paid: $70

Summary

Great shoe for anyone looking to go minimal. Has ample protection and good traction.

Pros

  • Very lightwieght
  • Good traction
  • Great for running sockless

Cons

  • A little light in the sole for rocky terrain

I run sockless.

Fit: Wide toe box allows the toes to do their job. Heel cup is fine. Never notice anything of discomfort.

Comfort: Great seamless inner material. Lots of miles and not a single blister.

Support: There isn't much which is basically the point so if you are a pronator or supinator, you might not like these.

Traction: Nice lugs smaller lugs allow for good traction although mud will cake up on you very quickly.

Overall: I couldn't be any happier. Great lightweight shoe that can hold up for tons of miles. Not to mention the price is just right. I've gotten mine for around $70 with a discount on runningwarehouse.com.
