Fell apart after mild use; but, comfortable
By FreeFeetNic March 3, 2011
These shoes are super comfortable to run in. I only run recreationally, and I also have a pair of FiveFingers Sprints. I probably prefer running in these. Unfortunately, they fell apart after a few runs. The silicone-looking hexagonal pattern is apparently just for show, because my pair ripped along the inside sides where the fabric meets the soles.
Terra Plana just came out with a nylon version of this shoe - maybe to fix this problem?
The ripping was a major problem. However, I did like the placement of the laces, the soles, the look, and the fact that they required no breaking in. Maybe a slightly wider toe box would have been nice (especially after wearing the FiveFingers), but then maybe my feet would slide around more?
