Comments: The Instinct 1.5 is a super comfy shoe, and feels just like the Instinct original...buuuuut my Instinct originals have outlived the 1.5's by a long shot. The mesh has torn on both shoes on both sides. And they are barely 2 months old. Other then that, great shoes, if you don't mind walking/running around with giant holes in the sides of your shoes. Stick with the original, for sure! They are great. They have lasted me almost a year and hundreds of miles.
An upgrade from the original award-winning shoe, The Instinct™ is the first shoe to truly marry the form-improving benefits of a minimalist shoe with the comfort, cushioning and support of a traditional running shoe. The Zero Drop™ platform and innovative foot-shaped design work together to help runners maintain proper running technique and reduce joint impact while freeing their toes to help alleviate foot pain. Trust your instincts and experience the world’s first fully cushioned, foot-shaped, Zero Drop™ running shoe.
