Killer Shoe!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I bought a pair of these about a month before running a Tough Mudder and wanted to make sure these were gonna get me through. So I trained with them daily. Even wore them as my normal shoes around the office. There were great! So great that I bought a second pair two days before the race b/c I was already set on donating the first pair. I could have kept them because they cleaned up so nicely too! Looked almost new with just a hose bath. They wicked water away like no other.

awesome shoe!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these shoes based on a friends suggestion and was completely satisfied. I wore them for a Tough Mudder and their ability to wick away water was amazing. I trained in them for a month before the race, trail runs, tread mill sprint and win sprint all without issues. They impressed me so much, I bought a second pair.
The only thing I didn't care for was they way they felt when I was doing squats. I'm used to my "toe-shoes" and these just didn't feel the same.

narrow toe box

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

Toe box is way too narrow. I started getting pain in my pinky toe just walking around my living room. Go for the 232 for a zero drop or the 252 for a 3mm drop. Other than the narrow toe, the construction seems good, good support in the ankle and good stability from the sole.

Beautiful Shoes

The blue color is awesome! These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever run in! I tried these after reading a convincing article on barefoot running. Their low profile gives an exceptional feel for the trail. The mesh is very breathable. They don't block water, but they drain fast. The flexible sole doesn't hurt my feet like most other shoes. The toe box gives my wide toe area room while keeping my low volume feet snug. I went up 1/2 a size from normal. I have run about a dozen 8-12 mile runs on packed dirt and moderately rocky trails. These shoes seem quite durable. Pronation control, protection plates, and cushioning are overrated. Get closer to nature with these shoes.

Fit volume is very tight

I got a pair of 9.5s in the flite 250, and although length was ok, width/overall volume is very tight. I had to switch to thinner socks to get my feet reasonably comfortable. Length wise it was ok though (I normally wear salomon xa pro 3d size 9.5, and that's a tad loose).

By comparison: Terroc 330 size 9.5: fits well. Rocklite 318 size 9.5 was way too small (length wise my toes were stubbing the front of the shoe), I could have done with a size 10.

Very Nice

First of all these shoes look awesome. Make sure you have matching running shorts. They are very lightweight, with a nice flat sole. I do just as much running on pavement as hard packed trail and they work very well on both.
Two possible issues. The lace loop on the tongue of my right shoe ripped off after one day, so possible design flaw but not really critical. These shoes are also very narrow. If you have wide feet you will not be happy.
