Comments: Shoe looks good and the fit (10D) is fantastic for me, an asian chinese. Comfortable enough for me to run sockless with it. Did a couple of 5-7km road runs with it and feels great, but the shoe is so mininalist that I don't think it will last too long.

Comments: I am about to buy my third pair of the mr00's an I can not say enough about them! I am on a limit on time so if have a normal width foot, and want to go minimal, get these shoes. They fit snug and are just brilliant. And to people saying these shoes hurt the outside of their feet, its your foot strike. You are landing on the outside of your feet and rolling inward. To get to the minimalist style run, you have to greatly reduce this. It isn't hard, just focus on it when you run. You will eventually drastically stop most of the over rolling and that is where the holes and pain is coming from. I have over 500 miles on my first pair and the holes started forming just after the state track meet. And the toe box is too small? Its a snug, lightweight shoe, why would they waste materials andsnugness on making a bigger toe box? Anyway love the shoes and cannot get enough of them. But we need more colors!!!

Comments: Loved the look and feel of the shoe as a recovery from my daily trainer the Altra Adam or Luna Huaraches but sadly even with the 2E width the overlay that drops right behind the lateral-side ball of the foot on both feet got some monster blistering on my second sockless run. Was going to give them another try with socks but the following day the blisters still hurt just walking barefoot and couldn't imagine the socks doing much. So I had to return them... I think if you aren't having hotspot issues like this it's a decent minimalist option from a big brand company. Sadly the Altra Adam is still the finest minimalist/barefoot-ish option on the market (which came out over a year ago). Can't wait for Brooks and Nike to get in the mix, good job NB!

Comments: Update from my previous review -- while I do like these shoes, the upper has failed on both shoes at the outside and inside ball of the foot. This began at about 200 miles and at about 250 there are holes big enough to put my finger through. Before the holes developed the inner silky nylon linning failed at these same points on the inside.
