The slightly narrow fit prevents feet from sliding from side to side, but may be snug for wide-footed runners. The toe protection sheet that wraps around the toe created a hot spot on the tips of the toes for one tester. The zero-drop construction effectively promotes midfoot striking and the rigid sole relieves a lot of the stress that comes from feet supporting themselves in most barefoot-style shoes.
