Lightweight yet supportive, these shoes boast of brilliance. I was hesitant at my first try-on because normally I wear orthotics due to my high arches. The Feline Ghost’s trim design didn’t allow extra space for my insoles so I went without. All good. Excellent cushioning combined with the sleek fit was like running in ballet slippers. Footstep after footstep along the rocky, tree-rooted trail, hardly a sound was made as my feet remained cradled in the multi-pad soles. My arches felt supported enough and I was experiencing a new sense of freedom without the bulk. No heel slippage or wasted space — perhaps less is more?
Non-stretch fabric is another feature of these specialized trainers. The upper material is constructed of nylon that has yet to break-in and stretch like so many other shoes I’ve been through. Seamless technology decreases the chance of blisters and wear, which means not only will the shoes last longer, but the lack of stretch adds to the stability of the shoes.
Vibram soles pad these flashy kicks and the tire tread pattern creates traction whether on dry, icy, or technical terrain. Minimalist, yet supportive and comfortable…can one ask for more?
