5.0 out of 5 stars Love these shoes, but be careful, 28 April 2014

This review is from: New Balance Men's Mt10bo2 Trainer (Shoes)
These shoes fit great, and feel snug like slippers. Super light, so running feels much easier, and the sole is sturdy enough to run on gravel/rocky trails without any nasty pain in the feet.

However, if you're not used to barefoot/minimalist running shoes, I'd advise caution and a very gradual transition. I switched to these shoes and started with short 1-2 mile runs daily, with a longer 5k run at weekends. After a few weeks I developed a stress-fracture in the metatarsals of my left foot, and had to rest it for a few weeks.

Now I've gone back to a traditional running shoe for most runs, and just use these for a short run a couple of times a week, which I will build up gradually.

Take it slow, and stop at the first sign of any pain.

Great shoe though!
