Got this shoe for myself a few weeks ago and I love it (just got this pair for my bro's bday i liked it so much). I run trail only and typically put in 3-8 miles per run. These shoes are minimal in design and super lightweight, but not quite a full on barefoot shoe. As a forefoot striker, i love these shoes because there's just enough support for the rocky trails of the wasatch, but they are not overly supportive (causing all sorts of other issues and injuries, in my experience). The build is tough enough to handle rough terrain, but super low profile. Also, the heel is next to non-existent, so don't plan on heel striking too much. I definitely suggest them.
