Men's Brooks® Mach 14 Spikeless :: Runs like the wind, and weighs just as much. The new Mach 14 Spikeless keeps it light with an internal skeletal structure that secures the foot using minimal materials. Screen print design details get you killer looks without the weight, though exceptional traction means you may never be seen.

Noticed the Brooks Mach 14 hadn't a review, and I found that very unfortunate. So let me be the first.
Background, this shoe was highly recommended by a fellow ultra marathoner, who uses both the Mach 13 and 14 in street races of any distance. I've been hunting around for the following shoe properties:
1) very light weight (6oz under) road flat
2) minimal design
3) seamless interior
4) durable (time will tell on these)
While I only just received my Mach 14, I must say they're an amazing shoe out of the box. Ran my first 13-14 miles in them yesterday and not one issue - keep in mind my feet are well acclimated for minimal design. These shoes made me feel like I was wearing feathers on my feet, on top of which the lacing/tongue design is very nice - stitched into the shoe - never moving.
Keep in mind these are very light and very low to the ground, so support wise you don't have much. But if you're a minimal runner and simply need that protective layer under your foot for the road, highly recommend giving these a try. I'm really interested to see how durable these are over time... but I believe these will be my new go-to road flats for some time - I use the New Balance 110 trail shoes (very similar heal-to-toe measurements and weight), but for aggressive trail.

Best minimalist shoe & less than $75
I'm a mixed distance runner, and these scale to perform to just about anything I throw at them. At their weight, I can hardly feel them and hardly experience any pain on impact being a forefoot runner.
I did miss the intimidating fierce red of its predessor Mach 13 Spikeless, but if you're on this site choosing your shoes based on color, stop running.
Compared to the Mach 13, these Mach 14s are harder to lace properly. It was hard to lace them just right, once I got the habit of lacing while stretching my feet downward, laces snug, then the fit would be right. I'm hoping the next version to these will help make lacing less of a chore and get you out there moving the earth.
I'm still using these shoes with no problems at all. I have owned and used these almost daily since March 2013
