Pros & Cons

What we like ...
  • Reasonably priced at about $100
  • EVA midfoot and flexible forefoot make it a more versatile shoe for beginners
  • 0.6” (15.5mm) heel wedge is easier to acclimate to than a standard 0.75” (19mm) heel
What needs improvement ...
  • Narrow heel base isn’t the most stable compared to other options
  • Very limited color options
  • EVA foam midsole is more compressible than those made of TPU, wood, or leather
