Quality of Construction

One of the great aspects of this shoe is how "green" it is.

-BioMoGo, the world's first-ever biodegradable midsole for running shoes
-75% of the shoe’s materials are post-consumer recycled
-Biodegradable insole and collar foams
-Laces, gillies, and reinforced webbing are 100% post-consumer recycled
-Water-based adhesives are used throughout
-All dyes and colorants are non-toxic
-Packaging is 100% post-consumer recycled

They are holding up well...EXCEPT for the laces. They started to fray at the point where you tie the knot very quickly. I use elastic laces so this wasn't a problem for me, but if you are a regular laces kinda guy then you need to pick up a replacement pair.

Fit

Great fit, holds the heel well and enough wiggle room in the front for me toes.

Comfort

They feel great. Very light. Minimal. Lots of ventilation. Just enough cushion.

Durability

Laces need replacing and the sole is showing a little wear, but holding up just fine.

Value

Anything $100 or lower for a great running shoe is a deal in my book.
