Good review. I know I have the Adam but they are similar shoes. They told me to size up at the store. That fixed my issues with size.

In terms of aesthetics I like the way the shoe look. I know it comes down to personal preference.

I did not have any heel issue on the Adam. I expected too because I have a narrow heel and wide forefoot.

I could probably agree about the tread durability. I wonder how long they will last with rigorous use.

I just reviewed these at TechnicallyRunning.com and had a much different experience. Maybe I just have the right shaped feet for them, but I have really grown to like mine. They did require a little bit of a break-in period, which is unusual compared to other minimalist shoes I've tried, but now they are very comfortable. I do, however, agree with some of the criticisms raised in this review. They are definitely not the most comfortable shoes to go barefoot in--I typically wear socks with mine.

I think the Adam/Eve were a stepping stone to get into the minimalist game. I agree with alot of the critique above, they are definitely not barefootable. due to the abundance of seems. First time I went for a run in them resulted in a blister. And for a while they were my to go to shoes, probably put a good 100 miles on them or so. But after getting the Samsons the Adams just felt TOO loose to me. Not to mention the toe strap is the epitome of uselessness.

I have been a huge fan of these and actually put over 250 miles on these things, running over 5 half marathons and my first full Marathon. Durability is good and sole is still in great shape. It's a shame you had such a bad experience with these shoes, considering it has changed my how I've run. A very good perspective on the shoe, nonetheless. I do agree that the front strap is pretty useless for me (almost cut mine off, since I have a wide food). Cheers and keep the reviews coming

I run rocky trails in my VFF Bikilas & KSOs but my feet get too cold in winter. I bought the Eves for winter running. I wear them with smartwool socks and even use YakTrax when it's icy. They've been an awesome winter option for me in Northern Colorado, but as soon as it warms up I'm right back to my VFFs. I'm glad I have both options!

@Robert Yeah, definitely have to size up.

@Maegan Good to hear they worked out well for you!

@Minimalist Evan I agree...there's too many seams on the inside which makes them uncomfortable.

@RunsFromZombies Wow, that's great! Congratulations on all those marathons!

@Shannon Nice! I bet they do a pretty good job at keeping your feet warm while wearing socks with them.
