These look interesting, but why such a high price?

Didn't know they were available in the US yet... They have been talked about for a while, but you could only get them overseas. I think Wanjuri wore them in Chicago last year. Looks like a nice shoe but probably a little to minimalistic for my old feet...

I agree that they may be too minimalistic for my taste. Plus, they are Nike. So, they are probably too narrow for me anyways. Why $125 for a shoe that weighs 5.3 oz is beyond me.

It is a $25 increase from the lunaracers.... But still cheaper than vibrams

I think there's only one pair of vibrams that's more than $125, most are right around $100

You're right. I was confusing them with the Evo, which I always liked but didn't want to shell out $150.

Thanks Nick....just ordered a pair from Running Warehouse. Now I'll have a pair to train in and another to save for races. And more fodder for Greg to make fun of me.
