Comments: This is a good minimalist shoe for varied surfaces and conditions. If I am going for a race or run that includes both road and trail, I pack this shoe. I have used it on long, 20+ milers and on short track workouts. It's a workhorse. You can expect the sticky rubber on the outsole to wear down about as quickly as the Vibram outsoles on the NB Trail Minimus or the Merrell Trail Glove. Take care not to lace too tightly--I did and ended up with some stubborn metatarsal pain. Pretty sure that was user error, not a shoe flaw. I normally go 0-drop, but these are great for those days when you need a little more oomf to your shoe.
