Other notable features of the Stealth:
- Fits perfectly when laced properly
- Great for running in the summer because they breathe very well
- Supreme flexibility makes it anatomically useful
- Can be worn comfortably without socks
- Great for barefoot transitioning or as an alternative to barefoot running
- Improves foot strength for those with flat feet
- Excellent build quality for road racing
- Great for activities other than running, such as martial arts
- Very stylish, enough to pass for a casual shoe
Overall, the Stealth is a smooth barefoot shoe that fits like a glove and it is targeted to help runners maintain the proper forefoot running form, making running more fun and pain-free.
More Reviews on Running Shoes for Forefoot Runners:
BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
