Narrow toe box
At first these felt great. But after running some longer runs in them, I found the toe box is not wide enough and gave me a couple black toenails. The overlays on the upper are a hard plastic, as is the knit, and this irritates toenails on longer runs. I would not recommend these.

Faster, more stability, and more comfortable than Nike Next%
I had a pair of the 4% for a couple years and squeezed every last bit of life out of them. Since then I've tried out pretty much every other "super shoe" on the market. As a Nike loyalist, it was going to take some pretty convincing results for me to commit $200 or more to another brand. Well, these...

Fast!
I’ve only done a small break in run so far. They will be tested in a couple of weeks in a half marathon but first impressions are a huge speed and comfort bump. A little awkward transitioning from my 860 training shoes. Takes a little getting used too but the results were great.

Great running shoe
I tried these on my long run - 20 miler - for the first time and was prepared to change shoes at the halfway point but they was no need. They were very comfortable, responsive and no "break in" feeling. I usually wear a size 8 in my new balance running shoes and with these I needed an 81/2. I plan t...

Yesss to the Fuel Cell running shoe
Due to a prior foot injury I experienced plantar fasciitis and quickly learned that I would have to invest quality money into a quality shoe to maintain my workouts. I have no regrets with my decision to buy this shoe. Post my run there's throbbing, no shooting pain. I hope they'll make them in blac...
