    Absolutely love the shoes but not for the reason I bought them

    Originally got the shoes for trail running long distance. After a couple of runs, I decided that they weren’t going to work for me and my style of running. First, they have a high drop. If I had paid more attention to the description I would have realized this. While many people like the extra cushion that comes with a high drop I feel like I’m running in high heels and it screws with my foot placement. The other thing that I didn’t like was the narrow heels. Between the high drop and narrow heel, I didn’t feel that secure running over roots and rocks that make up trails. Some people might also not like the weight but that didn’t seem like a problem for me.
    Now the things I love about these shoes. They are built rock solid. No doubt that these shoes are designed to go the long haul without breaking down. If there was a zombie apocalypse of running shoes this would be it. I love the lacing system. You just put it where you want it and it’s locked. Nothing to worry about with laces getting caught because these shoelaces tuck neatly away. A great touch! The sole is as close to perfect for a trail shoe as I believe you can find. They grip very well on the dirt and make your feet feel truly protected. I did notice a bit of slip on wet asphalt in the corners though.
    Ultimately, I decided to go with a different trail shoe because of the drop and width of the heel but chose to wear these as my everyday getting-around shoe. And for this I love them. They are just so darn well built and do feel supper comfortable that I wear them everywhere. And they are a great-looking shoe as well.

    So Far So Good...

    I bought these shoes because I needed a rugged shoe for trail running and hiking on rough, rocky terrain. They looked pretty durable, so I decided to give them a shot. As others have said, they do run a bit small and they aren't the most comfortable sneaker. If you like a running shoe that fits very snuggly, go with your normal size; but if you don't, you're probably better off ordering a 1/2 size up. As for the durability: the soul is quite thick and hard – actually much thicker than I was expecting – and the upper is also quite tough. I've only had them for about a week, and so far so good.

    Not very comfortable

    I really liked the sustainability aspect, but I found the shoes to be uncomfortable (very little cushioning) and had to return them. I hope they adjust this model or make a new one that feels softer.

    1/2 size too small.

    Don't wear that often.
