The day I got these boots I went on a 5k run with I.B.A., with plates. No blisters or hot spots. Boots provide good support and more traction than I would have expected for a low profile sole.
Boots are extremely lightweight and breathable on par with Alatama C-4. They outperform the C-4 trainer in regards to traction and ankle support and look to be more durable in the upper as these are designed to be mission capable as opposed to a training boot.
Boots feel and perform like a minimalist 4mm drop running shoe, that is there is not a high rise heel which puts your foot in a more neutral and natural position.
I've only had them for a week , so can't comment on durability but they are Danner so I'm not too worried.
