Great shoe. Lightweight and comfortable with room to splay toes and not irritate my beginnings of a bunion. I take a 9.5 in all shoes as well as these Altras. (not true with my last pair of Altra "Ones" - had to go to a 10). My only gripe is what the heck is the thinking about including laces that are well over a foot too long? These shoes make me feel fast and they allow me to run fast. I've been a zero drop fan and user forever. I wanted to get a second pair for when these wear out but by the time they do, Altra may be on to their next reincarnation, so I didn't. I know, I know, I'll kick myself later when they mess up the updated version. Highly recommend this shoe. My son got a pair at my suggestion and loves them too.
