This shoe is fantastic. I bought the shoe and right when I got the shoe I ran an 800 meter right away. They felt great. The only problem you might not like is ab a thing that is on the inner/side of the shoe but you will get use to it. Anyways fatastic shoe and would recommend shoe to anyone for racing. Enjoy

My initial reaction was that these shoes are as light as paper and the arch support area was noticeably narrow. They take some getting used to because of the narrowness, but I never found it affected my running. I only ran a handful of times with these before taking them to run a mud race (Savage Race). They worked great throughout the race (5+ miles of trails, hills, cargo nets, grass, swimming in mud and water, climbing, jumping, crawling). I did not have any blisters afterwards and my feet were not sore. I dried them out, and although I have not ran with them yet, they look and feel like they are still usable. I got the orange ones; do not be fooled, they are a bright orange and people immediately notice them. That also means that I was highly visible when out running and easily located by my teammates on the obstacle course. The only drawback- these shoes are so narrow that they are obviously not intended for running rocky trails.
For the price, I am happy with my purchase.

I have run cross country for 3 years and have never found a better shoe.
Cons: Color faded after about 6 meets. Rocks get jammed in the tread making it awkward to run. A tad bit to slim for me.
Pros: Matched my school colors. Great strong laces. Well ventilated and cool. Grippy for those tricky surfaces. Great sole, fit my foot perfectly. Slightly more neon than the picture.
