Here is a customer review from “pumped2run.blogspot.com“
When I first got them, I noticed my feet feeling a little sore, but it wasn’t that I was injured, I was using muscles that I wasnt used to using. I also started out by running no more than 2 or 3 miles in them, and my feet toughened up nicely. Now I can walk around in them all day on concrete and not feel sore, or I can even run on asphalt and not leave a good amount of skin on the track.
I still only train in them twice a week or so, and I haven’t run more than 13 miles in them, but I have definitely noticed an improvement in my running form, and alignment issues. Also, you should see the looks I get when I walk through the mall in those things!
Pricing: These innovative shoes range from 70- 90.00 per pair. They come in various colors and styles.
If anything, these would make great house shoes! They look fun and I’m sure they are the next hip trend to hit the market!
