I ordered these shoes and highly recommend that others order them in a size or two bigger than they normally wear. There's an uncomfortable inner seam that rubs against my small toe, and I have to wear two pairs of socks to be comfortable. Hopefully, when the shoes wear in it won't be such an issue. Other than the problem seams, these shoes are comfortable. The latex insole, while a very basic, archless insole, is squishy and comfortable enough for walking around. The outsoles are grippy--which is an important distinction among minimalist sneakers. The new cotton material is supportive, and I expect it to wear-in to comfortable softness.
