Xero Shoes TerraFlex

Product Review (submitted on 27 June 2019):
Arrived stupendously fast. Lovely quality feel to the shoe and very lightweight considering the level of protection they have compared to other barefoot shoes I own where i feel every lump on the trail which slows me down to a tiptoe sometimes. Just had my first 5k trail test run in them and they are extremely grippy as claimed and the insole does a smashing job of taking the sting out of rocks and roots on the trail whilst still giving you that barefoot feel. Xero seem to have reached the perfect compromise here regarding level of cushioning for a barefoot trail shoe.
My only negative thus far and its a personal one, is that whilst the toe box is very roomy and allows natural toe spread, the area across my metatarsals is not as roomy and as a result my big toe bones (wide feet) rub on the upper and slightly overhang the sole. Be aware if you have WIDE feet these may not be suitable. I have now ran outside in them so cannot return so am hoping they will give a little. If youre wider than 2E try before you go out in them. Perhaps a slight outward curve in the sole here to be truly foot shaped is a future consideration??
Suffice to say they are VERY comfortable out on the trail and meet expectations. Its just that I can feel pressure on my toe bone but thats something I've come to live with.
Thanks Xero :-)
