I have always been active, and I use these shoes to *finally* run longer than a couple of miles, again. I have high arches, bunions, bony feet, and a handful of other subtle asymmetries that became a real problem when trying to run due to constantly developing deep blisters around the side and/or bottom of the distal end of the first metatarsal. I have tried changing shoes, socks, stride, posture, stretching, strengthening, tape, separators, covers, you name it - to no avail.
These shoes have virtually eliminated my concern for this problem, now. I only say "virtually" not "completely" because I have to be extra careful to lace them just right and choose the appropriate socks for the temperature and/or foot swell for any given run or I could develop a hot spot after 4 or 5 miles, but that is really nothing compared to what I used to go through.

I first tried these shoes (in Women's size 9) because they were so reasonably priced plus I found them on sale. I loved them so much, but the size was just a tad too long (still do-able, and I have already pretty much worn those out). I thought to try the men's because I wanted a smaller shoe without sacrificing the roomy toe box, so I went with the men's size 6.5 (perfect.) This style really glows brightly for a long time, by the way. I have to keep them away from my bed at night, or else they keep me up (not kidding.)

I run on pavement and rocky trails in Austin, TX. These shoes work anywhere, but they are very stretchy in the toe box, and will stretch out a bit during break-in. I find they run big in men's and women's sizes (I have both - prefer the men's, but there doesn't seem to be much difference in shoe build that I can tell). In other words, once they wear in a bit, my forefoot tends to slide around if I hit uneven ground, but not in a severe way. It doesn't really prohibit trail running, and it is DEFINITELY worth the added give and comfort of the toe box without feeling loose and floppy.

They are very lightweight yet quite cushioned, and I love how the M-strike supports my high arches and helps keep my practically-non-existant heel from sliding around. This also helps prevent the friction on the bunion area. Basically, my feet stay comfortable, fatigue is diminished due to less impact on joints and none of that shifting of stride as the hot spot emerges, so I can just run and run like I did in my 20's.

My only complaint is the ugly colors (the only one I can really stand is the night owl lime green, but I don't like dark running shoes - too hot for Austin) and rising price considering how easily they wear out. The comfort and lightweight characteristics of the Ultra sole are awesome, but they lack any hard rubber on the bottom. I will say that they are still cheaper than any other comparable shoe and many that are less performance/feature rich. AND they do last longer and are more sturdy than you probably think.

Ok, I think that is probably TMI, sorry.... TRY THESE SHOES :)
