Worth the money!

I bought these with a bit of skepticism after trying multiple barefoot minimalist shoes and being disappointed because they offered too much support for me and ended up hurting my feet by the end of the day. I regularly wear flip flops day all day every day but I wanted something a little warmer for the winter. I also wanted a pair of shoes that I could wear on my elliptical, since I usually do that barefooted. These shoes are perfect! No breaking in period required. I literally took them out of the box, put them on, and ran 4 miles. They felt so good that I ran 4.5 miles the next day. I have even worn them hiking. You CAN feel roots and rocks through the soles, but I don’t mind because it’s still better than flip flops! They continue to be comfortable. I would definitely say that they are worth the money!!!

What’s up with the sizing?

My wife has the BOA fast lifts so I ordered these in the same size. These are way too small. Like a 1/2-1 size smaller.

Comfortable but insole slips out

This is very comfortable shoes, fitting like gloves. Designed as barefoot, it allows toes to grip tightly. However, the insoles always slip out of shoes. It was a quite embarrassing experience. The should be glued or use a kind of harder materials. I used a different insole. The problem was solved.

did not find it comfortable

For my needs (indoor workout), this shoe was just not comfortable for me. The quality looks amazing, it better be for the price. Just didn’t work for my needs.

Gum on front different colors

I know i am being picky, but the gum on the front of the shoes isn’t glued the same and makes it look like a different color. Love the fit, so ordered a second pair hoping that first was a fluke. It wasn’t. Both pairs being returned.
