Was this a gift?: No
I now own 2 pairs of these after putting over 200 miles on my first pair, and they are still going strong. I run almost exclusively trail but feel just as comfortable in these on the road. I average 25-45 miles a week with long a long run of over 20 miles.

The 4mm drop is perfect for my current running state. I love the cushioning in these and they feel great over long distances. Traction is fantastic in rain, mud, and even snow. Crossing creeks these drain quickly and dry just as fast. The smaller profile lugs make running on any surface a happy affair, though trails is where these really excel.

Durability has been great, haven't noticed anything going wrong or wearing out after a few hundred miles. As soon as I got a new pair for races, they went for a 23 mile trail run without any break-in. They were flawless. I recommend these for any trail runner or for Brooks fans trying for a minimal shoe along the Cascadia lines.

Really enjoy these!!
