Review after 100 miles. All I can say is awesome!

Comments: This is my second review after 100 miles on the Instinct 1.5. All I can say is the 1.5 is an awesome shoe hands down if you are a forefoot runner.It's hard to find a shoe that gives enough room in the forefoot area and still fit the heel area. I did use the recommended Altra lacing method and highly recommended it myself. As far as sole durability on asphalt/concrete wears great, better than others I have ran in @ 190lbs.They are somewhat heavier compared to other brands but did not hinder my running or stride. The only really gripe I have and it's not really a gripe is that I wish they had more exciting brilliant colors; which I have heard that they are currently in the process of doing. I highly recommend these shoes. I think they are totally awesome!
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.
