Great! Just be sure to order bigger size!
July 30, 2013
I am a sometimes-runner--basically I run when I am training for a race. I follow the Chi Running form, and then encourage minimalist shoes (since your feet know what to do--super cushioned shoes only mess them up and hurt your joints).
Anyway, these shoes showed up in my research as great for minimalist, yet still giving protection--I run mostly on trails, and then protect my feet even from gravel.
BIG NOTE!!! These shoes are notoriously SMALL. Seriously. Believe it. I am size 8. I bought my first pair of Hattori in size 9, and they are good, and I've run in them for months, and they work well...but whenever I wore slightly thicker socks, they felt tight. So I found these size 10s and bought them...I went for my first run in them yesterday (10 miler)--what a difference! Now I have slightly wide feet, and these shoes give me great freedom and flexibility.
In conclusion, these are great, low prices minimalist running shoes--just be sure to order up 1-2 sizes (honestly, I'd recommend 2).
