Rated 5 out of 5 by Sully Love the minimal shoe
Love these shoes! I'm about to purchase my 3 rd pair. I knew that I wanted a minimal shoe for running, so I started out in vibram 5 fingers. The shoes were great, but I didn't understand the purpose of the toes. I began researching shoes with no support, for the minimal running shoes I wanted. I tried on several different minimal shoes but these seemed to be the most comfortable. The toe area is very roomy which is nice, especially for longer runs. I switched out the laces because even when I tripped knotted them, they continuously came untied. I am pretty rough on these shoes, by taking them on difficult trail runs through the mud. i have noticed that the tops do get slight tears/breakdowns, but nothing that impacts the usability or purpose of the shoe. Overall, these shoes are very minimal and are fantastic for natural/close to barefoot running! Although everyone is different, and may prefer different shoes, I love these and wish I had an unlimited supply! Im glad they come at a great price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lilli fantastic shoes!
I bought these shoes last year and absolutely loved them. They are lightweight, comfortable, and pretty. Surprisingly they even stayed white a lot longer than I expected! About six months after buying them, they developed two small holes that eventually turned into four medium sized holes by the 11 month mark. As a fitness instructor who also runs several times a week, I literally worked these shoes to death. I'm not upset about the holes, and feel as if the shoes lasted an appropriate amount of time. I'm getting ready to replace them and am seriously considering buying the same exact pair.

Good shoe at a good price! Toe area is a little tight at first, but is stretching to fit my foot. VERY light weight, feels almost like you have nothing on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rere I liked them so much I bought them twice
Very good shoe. Flexible sole perfect for running on various surfaces. I like much better than NIKE because they are lightweight and my foot doesn't feel suffocated.

I love them for "light" WODs. No much support for running, but perfect for Crossfit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaimie So comfortable
I never want to wear another shoe. As a heavy heeled runner I thought these would not work for me. But they have. The first few weeks of running, my calves were very tight. But that has faded and the best part is that I haven't had any foot pain (from a previously broken toe) or knee pain (from a break where the ACL attaches). The only disappointment is that they have not lasted long. I quit wearing NB because of quality issues and I wish I could say they've improved. But they haven't and the fabric along the inside edge is tearing after only a few months of wear. Oh, well. It's worth replacing them, but I might try a leather Minimus style instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stashi Great casual shoe
I am a long distance runner that needs supportive sneakers (Which I usually get a Brooks brand). I wanted something light and casual to wear with jeans or for a stroll. These were perfect for such things. Due to my flat feet these shoes would probably not be beneficial but a great light weight sneakers and maybe great for those that can run in such. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is due to the shoe laces. The material they used cause them to untie often unless double knotted. Otherwise, I love them and they look great with a pair jeans for those casual days and are comfortable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Pookie very light weight but not a hold up shoe
Very light weight shoe, but the quality is not the best, my daughter wore them for a little over 4 weeks and had torn the whole side open, very disappointed as I had heard great reviews of the shoe...
