Give these babies a try and never look back. They will change the way you run and give you stronger feet, a much healthier gait and maybe even cure your fasciatis (sp?) - worked for me. PLus you really will feel more connected to the earth - seriously!

You must get used to them at first and your calves will ache but it goes away. I cannot run in my old Asics anymore. Old shoes are like running in a mushy cloud - these are so much better.

The true gloves rule too but these are better for wider feet or if you prefer more toe-box freedom.

Wear can be an issue as they are quite thin, but I am pretty easy on shoes and mine lasted me a whole season. Well worth it!

These are simply fantastic shoes and will change your running entirely. You will need to get used to them and your calves will ache, but get over the hurdle and you will be rewarded with stronger feet, a healthier running form, and you'll feel more connected to the earth with every step - no kidding.

And my one bout with faciatis dissapeared almost overnight after switching to these babies.

One bad note, they do not last very long compared to much thicker shoes (less rubber to wear off) but this is not a problem for me as I am light and never hard on shoes.They lasted me a full season last year.

I have tried the trail glove as well and I kind of like it better as the toe box is more open. So if you have wider feet go with the trail glove. Narrower feet, true glove.

Just got mine (at a huge discount!). And I can tell you first hand that this is the same unit as the Solaris 6 but it comes with an extra cable for an iPod (this extra cable will not work with iPod touch or iPhone as the polarity of the cable is switched for them for some reason - thanks jerks at Apple).

But alas you can use this with any cigarette style car chargers that you have so it does not matter. Throw the extra cable away if you want and you still have a Solaris 6 with the other 3 cables. Win win!
