Well worth it, but ease your feet in
I've been wearing these shoes for about 3 weeks and love them. Working on my feet for 8 hour shifts, 5 days a week, I need something that holds up to wear and tear... so far so good. The first week I alternated days between my old running shoes and these, and it seemed to minimize sole soreness. Don't get me wrong, these things will have your feet throbbing at first, but give them some time and they'll feel great.
