Comments: I loved the Instinct 1.0 for its comfort and durability (had at least 6 pair). The mesh on the 1.5 is ripping and is not comparable to the 1.0 in durability at all. Very poor quality! After 100 miles they look worse than the old Instinct 1.0 I have used for yard work. Sadly, I won't buy another pair unless this mesh issue is fixed.
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.
