Comments: My daughter bought me a pair of these shoes in September 2012. I reluctantly gave them a try early in 2013 and the results have been amazing. I am 6'3" and 280 pounds so I did not think that a minamalist shoe would help with the plethera of injuries I have. Moving from a pure heel strike to a mid foot strike has significantly reduced the impact on my hips. I am actually running frequently again and for the first time I am enjoying every mile.
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.
