On the recommendation of Danny Dreyer (chirunning.com), I bought these shoes and he was spot on. These are the lightest, most comfortable midfoot strike shoes I've seen. There is good tread and plenty of space in the forefoot, especially for the D width. It's like running barefoot.
There is not much cushion, but that is the point if you want to run midfoot. Heel striking is the cause of much runner's pain and a midfoot strike reduces the strain on the knees and feet. Check out chirunning.com if you would like to know more.
These shoes have been discontinued by NB and will start to run out of stock. Pick them up while you can.
