I'm a hard-to-fit person and picky about comfort. You know when you put something on and you think "ahhh....." , for me, these are those. absolutely one of the most free fitting and comfortable shoes ever ! You know those favorite shoes you wished you'd purchase more of ? These are those and this time ? I did ! Love these !

My CWP trainer wore these and I could not take my eyes off them. I finally asked her where she got them. I ordered my first pair immediately when I got home. These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever had on my feet. When I finish my daily walk, I find that I keep them on versus kicking them off. I just ordered my second pair. Wish I could get them in black. Love, Love, Love these shoes.

super comfortable and versatile

I love these shoes! I have been wearing them working a beach patrol all summer. They are lightweight and flexible. I walk through soft sand, water, and on pavement and these shoes do it all!

Love them

I just got back into running and have several different brands of running shoes. These are the only ones that do not make my feet cramp, hirt or ache. They are thin compared to my other ones bit I bounce in them better then in other running shoes. Highly recommend

These are the best pair of shoes I have purchased in a long time. I wish more colors were available.

Love these!

I had some Adidas Powerlift that I used to lift in, I go through squats in the Adidas then kick them off and deadlift barefoot or in socks. The constantly made my arches ache, even after I put a new liner in them. I finally accepted they were not the shoe for me and sold them (they only had about 20 wears in the Squat rack only.
I found these earlier and finally decided to give them a go. For me they fir true to size, I wear a size 7 in virtually everything and after reading reviews on the Recon Trainer I ordered half a size up - they felt sloppy in the toe box so I exchanged for my normal size 7 - perfect fit!
At the gym I do not take them off. I go from squats, to deadlifts, box jumps and everything in between. I have no problem with lifting heavy weight in them, they keep my foot secure and I have zero slippage. Enough lift in the for the squat rack but not too high for deads. Sole is nice and flat for all lifting.
I would recommend for cross fit although I am not a cross fitter.
I am not sure how they hold up for running or trails as I am no cardio queen but for slinging weight around they are my new go to. Will be ordering additional pairs.

LOVE these shoes!!

I purchased these at my local indoor range. Did have to go up a half size. Most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. Luckily I work at a university and our colors are orange and blue, so these will get a LOT of wear!!

Where have you been all my life?!

From Heather


I saw these on someone's Instagram. She swore they were better than Reebok Nano's.. I never owned a pair of Nano's but I did know they cost a lot and the pairs I've tried on have way too much room for my toes. My feet aren't narrow, but there is no way I could wear them with that much space. So, I decided to check out this website. At the time they were $70, plus extra 25% for the current promotion. Score! Pretty much getting them for 50% off!! I fell in love with the Orange color and it's even better in person! I love the color and the shoe is magical! So much better than my converse that I was squating in! I will never wear my converse on leg day again. My feet would always slide around and I had to constantly adjust them... Little did I know it was because of my shoes. These trainers do not slide around! They grip the floor and don't budge! These are the BEST shoes and I cannot wait to catch another sale!!

Great athletic shoe

Love these shoes! The fit is perfect and are so great to wear if doing an athletic activity. (I recently wore them while to rock climbing and they were great!) The logo that is velcro on the back is a little pointless and frays with use but that's the only negative I can think of.

best shoe yet

I have a problem finding shoes that actually work for my feet. These shoes are comfortable and have a very low to no arch (great for me maybe not others). They are a bit pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. They were shipped quickly and arrived in 2 days (but that could be because they were shipped from one state over). All in all great shoe and i need to buy all the colors!
