Comments: A year ago I bought a pair of instincts while trying to find a shoe that works with less-than-perfect feet. My toes are long and my foot is wide at the front, so common running shoes always left me with blisters and discomfort. With this shoe I have PR'd in both my Half Marathon and Marathon times. I use them for all of my training runs, as well as trail running. I'll never go back to a conventional running shoe. It should also be noted that I started training with the Instinct after a severe bout of Plantar Fasciitis. That was one year ago, and I am running more weekly miles than I had in the past; currently about 50 mpw. I would recommend this shoe to anyone who likes the comfort of house shoes, but is serious about running.

Trust your instincts and experience the world’s first fully cushioned, foot-shaped, Zero Drop™ running shoe.
