Pearl Izumi's lightest road racing shoe.

A machine capable of running a mile in under four minutes or hundreds of miles at a time, the human body can achieve amazing feats with the right tools. Slip your foot into the Peal Izumi Men's EM Road N 1 Running Shoe and run further and faster than you thought possible. Feathery light and highly flexible, this is a minimalist road racer's dream shoe. The seamless upper feels smooth against your bare foot, foam cushioning helps you explode off your toes, and the low-drop midsole allows you to smoothly transition between heel, mid, and forefoot striking styles. This is Pearl Izumi's lightest and most lively road shoe, and it was created so you can experience maximum speed on race day.

  • Seamless construction gives the upper a comfortable feel against the foot
  • Mesh upper allows air to flow freely across the foot and this material dries and drains of water quickly
  • Quick-lace system and rear pull tab makes it easy to transition in and out of this shoe
  • 1:1 Energy Foam cushions the forefoot and offers explosive rebound for toe-off
  • Low, 3.5mm drop (heel-forefoot height) gives your foot nearly level heel and forefoot heights, which puts your foot in a position that's more natural
  • This low drop allows you to easily transition between heel, midfoot, and forefoot striking styles
  • 1:1 Energy Foam cushions the forefoot and offers explosive rebound for toe-off
  • Blown rubber and carbon rubber outsole provide traction on and off the road and supreme abrasion resistance for long-term durability

Looks nice, feels ok, then I ran in them

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

I've been a fan of nike frees for years but I read some reviews and decided to buy these without trying them on anywhere as they had good reviews and the deal was great here.
I unpacked and they looked sweet. I started playing around with them and was a little disappointed with the flexibility. The description says highly flexible, and they are not. There is some flex bending the toe back but not "highly flexible." There is no flexibility elsewhere unless you're comparing it to a brick. I walked around and didn't feel confident in them as I felt the base was a bit narrow.
I decided to run around the block and felt like I was stomping my feet. I adjusted my gait like I did when I first started with nike frees and it started feeling better, but then started hurting. I started running more on my heels which was cushioned and it felt better on my legs but I felt awkward as I prefer running more on the mid to forefront. I thought about giving them a second try tomorrow, but once I sat down my shins started throbbing.
