This is going to sound crazy, but I would almost say that these shoes are under priced. I run A LOT. I tried these shoes on for a whim because they looked cool (black/red/green), and I could not believe the fit, feel, support, and weight. The only question will be how long they last, but for the price, a person could afford to replace them often. I love great accidental finds like this. And yes they do fit about a half size smaller, but I like a tighter shoe so this is perfect!
