My yellow Evo's came in but they are headed right back. I have to downsize one size smaller. With that said, the shoe is very light and super flexible with the insert removed. I have wide feet (4") and have no problems with it. The upper mesh material is very forgiving. Toes have plenty of room to splay. 
The only weird part of the shoe is the way the heel area is designed. It's almost square like compared to regular running shoes. While the rear of the shoe touches your heel, there are gaps on the sides.
I hope the size I go to (US 8/EU 41) is a bit better. US 9 feels fine walking around the house but if it breaks in and stretches out, it will be TOO big for me.

I have to say, those are pretty bad a$$ looking!  If I wouldn't have just bought another pair of KSOs a couple weeks ago, my wife would sign off....paying 160 for these would probably send her through the roof!!!  I guess I can wait....don't know how long though!

Well looks like I'll be $160 richer soon. My downsized replacement Evo's are too dang small. I'm an in-betweener unfortunately for the Evo model. US 8 is too narrow, US 9 is a bit too big. Oh well.
More money towards other stuff (VFFs or minimal shoes).  Grin

yah man, these things are so damn expensive!  i want a pair, but don't like the idea of throwing down 160 large...

Anyone interested in trying them Running Quest has a 40% code.  Just ordered a pair of black EVOs for less than $100 shipped.  Nice!  I hope the size I ordered was good.

Ran the San Antonio 1/2 marathon in my Evos yesterday.  Came in at 2:12.57, much faster than anticipated.  I switched over from VFFs (first KSO, then Bikila) because I kept blowing out the inside of the second toe. 

I love these shoes.
