Ran my first ultra marathon today and haven't logged more than 13.5 miles in my entire LIFE. The number one thing all my ultra running buddies told me was that I would get crazy blisters and joint pain. NO blisters from these shoes. It seems too good to be true, but it's real. Only a little bit of joint pain, but I did trip and fall on a lot of roots and the course had several hundred feet elevation gain... plus I did 28.44 miles without training for it. Impressed by how great I felt afterwards, and these shoes definitely contributed to that.
1. The laces come undone CONSTANTLY. I have the light blue color and the almond color, and they have different laces. The almond ones stay on better than the blue ones.
2. If you don't wear above-the-ankle socks, you will get a rub on the front of your ankle from the tongue of the shoe. I only got it on my right foot, and since then have changed my sock game. However, my first day wearing these was walking around a theme park and I bled quite a bit from the tongue.
Please, try these shoes out. You deserve it. #treatyoself
