Sounds great (except for the blister part, of course!) I used the MT10's for trail running last spring thru fall with MT101's for longer runs and hikes. I found the MT10's to be just what I was looking for - i.e. something close to a five finger shoe, but with more protection for my feet as I run on a lot of rocky trails and some dirt roads with scattered gravel chunks. I find with the MT10 I don't have to pay full attention to where I land my feet. Don't get me wrong, my feet will let me know when I've stepped some where or in some way that wasn't ideal, but it's a tolerable pain. With the five fingers I felt that I was actually punished for landing wrong and occasionally ended up with some nasty bruises from wearing them (five fingers, not MT10s).
So I'm in awe of the weight of those MT00s, but I'm hesitant becasue I know there just isn't enough coverage on the sole for the type of running I do. I'm not careful enough with my foot placement to always make sure I land on the padding. What has been your experience in this regard. And what type of similar shoes have you used in the past to compare? What types of terrain are you using them on and do you plan to use them on in the future.
Man, 4.8oz. I'm jealous. Love light shoes. It's like a whole different sport when you get that light on your feet, especially for hill climbing.
