Comments: Running in the shoes is great and has helped me to fix a knee issue that has been bothering me for years. in 11 months I went from barely able to finish 5 km to running a marathon with only the last couple miles giving me pain. they lose a star for 2 reasons: the outer mesh will tear after running for a few hundred miles, this looks bad but they still function fine. Second, the sizes aren't consistent, I ran 250+ miles in my first par and they were great, ordered a second pair in the same size and they were significantly shorter causing toe rub and eventually a black toe.
