Forefoot: A bit too narrow for what I like. Being used to a wide toebox similar to the minimus, this felt constricting to my toes. Can still run in though. Much better the the extremely narrow Nike FlyKnit
Cushion: Revlite foam is really noticeable in the heel and is great for longer runs when tiring cause the heel to strike little more then normal after the forefoot strike. Does tend to push up against the arch in the medial part of the shoe
Flexibility: Bends in the middle but can’t completely roll up.
Overall: Not a true minimalist shoe but recommend. Designed as a racing flat I would save this shoe for races. Though not intended for marathons, I think for runners used to minimalist shoes, this makes for a great racing shoe for a half marathon or full marathon.

Hi, I just wanna ask about it’s durability and how are the shoes holding up? The New Balance guys at the store said it’s lifespan is about 600km, is that true?
