Ok, I just tried them on in the office. First thing I noticed was the retro look. Kind of cool kind of not. But at this point I am looking for function over fashion. They are white with blue stripe. Very white I should say.

Next thing I noticed (and I did read a review of this) it seemed a bit longer then a typical size 12. I put in my orthodics and I can tell they would fit well and they did. I then gracefully slid my right foot into the shoe noticing how comfy they feel. I did this again for the left foot. I tied the laces stood up and immediately noticed how dam white they are.

At this point I felt walking was pleasurable but I can't get out of my mind that they are a bit long maybe big in length although as I ran up and down my office hallway employees looking at me they felt good. No heel slippage no toe slippage but I can't escape how white they are and how long.

So, I decide to try on my Ronin 2's on one foot and keep the Oregon 10's on the other. And immediately the ronin 2's did feel a bit more fitted but not by much. I am now running up and down my office hallway with a yellow pair of ronins and the white oregons. Keep in mind I am wearing white work out pants and white t-shirt. So I start yelling in my office "Ice Cream Man - Get your Ice Cream here".

So after doing the running test (and it did feel ok). I did the toe test. And it is quite evident the Oregons have about 1/4 inch or more room then the ROnin 2's.

So being the shoe addics I am I ordered from Zappos the 11 1/2 overnight . Will have them tomorrow. I am hoping for good results.

PS: I ordered them in Black with white stripes. A bit less Good Humorish.

Yeah I have the blue ones. I warned you that they would be a little big. I should have sent mine back and got a half size smaller but I don't mine them that much. You are also right that when you look down at them on your feet they look huge or as you said "Long". I do like doing up tempo runs in them.

Yes many people said they run a bit long. I say long cause they don't necessarily feel big. If that makes sense. I think the 11 1/2 might do the job we will know tomorrow.

I must say if they do fit I think this might be she shoe I was looking for. Feels like I can get away with long runs and even GA runs. I like to go lighter with Tempos however.

I will thank you tomorrow or after my first run! What a Face

Got the size 11 1/2 in black but forgot to bring my orthodics with me as I did not wear them today. But from what I can tell they should fit well. Crossing my fingers cause I really like the shoe and think it will be exactly what I was looking for for LSD runs!
