Are They Any Good?

Gear Patrol listed it as one of the best running shoes of the year 2017, saying simply: "I love these shoes."

Customer Daniel G. left a review saying: "This shoe has quickly become my go to for runs on the road and on packed trails."

Customer Emily J. left a review saying: "I keep re-ordering Itens because they are a really great shoe and fit my foot and my running needs well. I like that they are minimal and light, but sturdy enough to do my longer distance runs (half marathons) and give enough support for speed or interval workouts."
