Light, comfortable fast road racer


I love these shoes. The uppers fit like a glove while the toe boxes provide plenty of room for the digits to splay on foot plant. I PR'd in an 11K road race this morning wearing these shoes. The weather was dry; the temperature just above freezing. I wore toe socks. My feet remained cool & comfortable the entire time. This would not be a shoe to wear in very wet conditions or when traction is needed (ice). The tread reminds me of a slick racing tire, i.e. designed for fast speeds on dry surfaces.

Good transition shoe.


I have had these shoes for a few months now. I have slowly been transitioning to the the 6mm drop. They feel like slippers. Very light and fast. They are good on dry roads. They are very slippery off road. Just finished a half in these and set a PR! Give your self time to get used to these shoes if you're not used to the low heel drop. They killed my calves at first. Took months to get to where I could run 6 miles in them. They've held up relatively well. But they look dirty thanks to all the white. I hate the colors, but who cares.






I absolutely love these shoes. They are lightweight. I also have a pair of Inov-8 F-Lite 230s, but I found I didn't like running in them for more than short distances (e.g. those used in my Crossfit workouts). These Road-X 233s gave me everything I loved about the minimalist shoe and made it work for road runners. I always order my running shoes 1/2 size bigger than my dress shoes, so to me, they run true to size for running shoes.

This is not a zero drop shoe. It gave me some back pain after a 7 miler. I tried it out for a shorter run 4 miles but same issue. I wanted something a little more traditional looking. I now just use it for walking. I have been running in Merrel trail glove and vivobarefoots Evo so this actually has a little heel for me. Good quality, just not for me.

Awesome minimalist shoe


Ran 4 miler right out of the box great shoe. This is not for a beginner as it is a minimalist shoe and takes some time to get used to. Less for me is definitely better. I will use this shoe for 5Ks to Marathons.
