  • Additional Information: A moderate minimalist shoe, this model is tapered and fit like a glove in the mid-sole area and heel, with sufficient wiggle room for toes, although not quite as wide as some other modern minimalist shoes. A firm, fast ride that seems to put the runner, not the shoe, in control. The design encourages moving intuitively and for most of our wear-testers that meant running with a midfoot/forefoot gait, but falling back into a heel-striking gait results in fairly hard impacts with the ground and a distinctive slapping sensation.
