I love this shoe for three main reasons: 1) the minimalist sole, which has essentially ended my issues with twisting my ankle. I feel the road better. My stride feels more natural. 2) the width. Very few trails shoes, too few in my opinion, come in a wide. 3) the construction of the toe box exactly matches the shape of my own foot. In short once I ascertained my correct size they are the perfect shoe for me.

The sizing runs small. In hiking boots or casual shoes I am usually an 8.5. In these shoes I can wear a 9 with thin socks or a 9.5 with medium weight socks or even a 10 without feeling like I'm in clown shoes. An 8.5 would definitely be too small. Right now I rotate between my three pairs, I've finally concluded the 10 is too big and I don't need to go that large again. I'm not fully decided yet if the 9 or the 9.5 is my favorite.

These shoes are super cute and would be very comfortable if they weren't ridiculously small. I ordered a 10 wide which I've always wore in New Balance products. These are extremely tight and fit more like a medium shoe, if not smaller. The length seemed a little short also. The biggest problem with these shoes is that there is a leather band going across the top and it's extremely tight. I really wish these would've worked. They are very light weight and seemed like they would've have been good walking shoes.

I ordered half a size up and they fit perfectly. Wasnt sure they would be ok because they were tight in the sides where the rubber nub is, but after wearing them around the house a bit they softened up and were ok. Took them on a 4 mile hike with a big incline and up some rocks etc. And jumped around, rode my bike 6 miles in them too. So far everything is going great and I am happy with my purchase. They will be just what I need to hike in Kauai!

I bought these to replace my original NB Minimus 10v1 which are wearing out. The new ones are not as wide as the original even though they are both the wide version and I bought the 9.5 instead of the 9. I use these for light trail running and walking around. I like them because they are light and minimalistic which I prefer. Since I've been running in low drop shoes I have not had a problem with knee pain. If someone is not used to low drop shoes, these will take time to adjust to be able to run in them.

I have bought similar products same brand in the past. The fit was smaller and narrower than a current pair I own. I was forced to return the item, but haven’t replaced yet. I have a difficult time purchasing clothes and shoes online and wish I had gone with experiences in the past. On a side note Amazon does make returns SUPER easy. I just placed items back in shoe box and took to my local UPS. I showed code Amazon provided my on my phone and done.

I said these shoes fit as expected because I followed others advice and got a larger size and also a wide fit. I have a narrow foot but I don’t like a tight shoe on any part of my foot so this worked well to have plenty space for my toes to spread.
I fell in love with Skora minimalist shoes but they sold the company and aren’t selling shoes now. These NB shoes are different in that there is arch support but it’s kind of on the side of the shoe. The inside bottom of the shoe is very narrow, maybe an inch and a half wide at the arch part, but your foot is supported from the side. This sounds odd and it’s a strange and different feeling from any other shoe I’ve worn.
The shoes are comfortable so far and I’m planning on working in them as well as everyday use. The shoes were slightly bent in spots from shipping, like on the tongue which caused some rubbing, but they’re pretty pliable and I’ve been able to straighten them out and bend them away from the spots where they were rubbing my ankle.
All in all these seem well made and have a supportive Vibram sole and are pretty comfortable. I think they’re worth the price.

I love the fact they are light weight. I have used them for my travel shoe, hiking and walking. I'm not a runner. I had back injury and was left with drop foot. These are the only shoe I can use to walk long distances. I do like my first pair WT10GG the best but they don't make that model any more. The bottoms are wearing but I will use them till they have wholes. The newer models are ok. I normally take a 7.5 shoe. I have to buy and 8.5 B for these shoe.

I purchased these a couple days before a big trip to London and they arrived as we were leaving, perfect timing! I quickly switched shoes and wore them the whole time. These are the most comfortable shoes I’ve worn, we walked about 25,000 steps a day or around 10 miles, EVERYWHERE and my feet didn’t hurt. I’ve also gone running and they’re perfect, they don’t slip. Definitely recommend! I’m typically an 8.5 and the 9 fit best.
