The manufacturer is clear, these shoes are to assist with modifying foot strike. You are to ease in to wearing them. I'm a heal striker.
I'm a novice runner and after one run of 5km I have 2 strained calves and am hobbling 4 days later. This is on me not the shoes for pushing my luck.
Shoes look great, are comfy and perform as outlined in description.

I run about 15 miles per week in these and train four days per week with them. These shoes are light and very stable. I wear a 10 normally but a 9.5 in these, and I don't wear socks with them. WAYYY better than my VIBRAMS. I recommend these shoes to anyone looking for a minimal design.

Nice shoe when picked up, but the outer sole/grip has already started to come off after only a few runs.
Havnt even worn them a lot, not very happy with the product quality overall.
