Also Xero shoes makes several shoes all of them are minimal models and no not all of them are running sandals, they may have started by making those and a single pair of running shoes. Also the brand makes the rubber so well the shoes last 1000-2000 miles, upper is what fails first.

How's the width on these? Color me interested for the price. I bomb through dg shoes fast

I have not used them but I have seen online the shoes in reviews are more inline with Merril Tailgove or Vaporglove type shoe, so skinnier then the average running shoes as that is how the minimal shoes from Merril tend to be.

I have seen people wear them for trail running, ultra marathons well the older model of the two that look like Merrils in 2013 about the time the minimal running shoe thing was at it peak, newer model was not out yet. Saw them when working a station at the Black Hills 100 in 2013, a race that is tough due to having many little hills during the whole race on the Centennial trail in the Black Hills a guy in his 50-60 was running in the shoes and they were holding up fine. Also saw the guy in his upper 80's who did the Fargo Marathon as his 2000th marathon and he had on the older model but a white color of the shoes they used to sell though his were near the end as he shoe goo, because he probably just put way more miles on the shoes then one is supposed to on any pair of shoes. The other trail model that Tesla is selling not the minimal model that looks like some version of Salamon shoe, is not great, I have seen reviews stating the upper is stiff and clunky and the midsole is hard. The road model has mixed reviews, the one that looks like an older model of Nike Free or older Adidas Bounce shoe model.

Those are newer like from 2019 or 2018 so no not enough about them for me to say. They do look like the newer version of the old, so they should work well is my guess.

Just ordered a pair of the blk40. I'll let you know how they fair. I might be sing them for the random dubs round of a charity tourney I'm playing this weekend.

I'm currently just using UA running shoes sprayed with camp dry, so they'll probably be an upgrade for me.

I got them for around $25 on amazon the 2 day shipping (1 since I ordered early in the day). There are reports of them both running small and large. I typically wear a 10.5 running shoe...naturally they weren't in stock so I got an 11, so we'll see how the sizing runs. I've got clear weather here in GA for the weekend but it's going to be soggy, so I'll need all the pairs of shoes I can get my hands on
