Tevasphere's Spherical Heel is Real!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been running around Mexico and my local trails now for a few weeks in these things and I'm impressed. As a guy who doesn't do well with minimal shoes on rocky terrain these protect my feet (arches, heel, and toes) really well. The spherical heel seems to ensure every downhill heel strike is centered and balanced without and pressure points and the arch pods provide the stability to allow the heel sphere to roll. The shoe is built really solidly too. These will lost the abuse of my 225 lb frame for a while. The shoe is lined with eVent fabric which is good and bad. The waterproofing is going to be great as the weather turns to fall and the rain starts falling but in the summers higher temps my feet are warmer than average. Not unbearably so but noticably. Overall, I'm liking what Teva is doing here. It seems like they've hit on something
