This is my first truly minimal running shoe so bear that in mind while you read the following:

It's super light and comfortable which I love. The lugs on this shoe are HUGE which I can see being amazing in moist soil or on mud. I imagine these large lugs clean themselves very effectively of mud which would be great.... if I run in muddy conditions more. But my local trails tend to be rough, dry and covered in decomposing granite. The loose conditions here lend themselves to a little less aggressive tread than this. Also, because it's a minimal shoe and because the lugs are so big, you can feel each of them against the bottom of your foot, almost as you would stones underfoot. I won't say this is an "uncomfortable" feeling but may grow to be that way with enough milage. It gave me pause, let's say that. Three stars feels like a slight against what I think is actually a well designed shoe but I do consider them "adequate for the job". I wasn't wowed by them.
