First Miles in the Feelmax Niesa Shoes

Posted by scott on April 20, 2009

I am just getting started testing some prototype Feelmax Niesa shoes that I received from Feelmax.  The short version is that these shoes are fantastic!

They wear like shoes, but have an incredibly minimal sole.  You get just a bit of sole protection, but plenty of barefoot feel.  I have only done a few runs in them so far – a couple on road and one on trail.  I was particularly pleased with the trail performance – could definitely feel changes in terrain.  I was totally comfortable for my 8-mile trail run in them yesterday.  They are incredibly lightweight and soft, so with socks I don’t see any chance of blistering.  More to come on these great shoes!
