Staff Reviews

  • "Good, just don't need quite as much stability for my foot." - Jim R. 
  • Higher volume fit though the mid-foot compared to previous versions. Seems the the overall shape of the shoe feels a little more on the curved side. The shoe is super lightweight and flexible which gives it an extremely natural ride. Almost feels like I am barefoot!" - Brian V. 
  • "The shoe feels very light and not much different than my neutral shoes that I run in. I would use these shoes for my training runs. They are really comfortable and I feel like they can be used for runs anywhere from 2-10 miles." - Sinclaire J. 
  • "Pure Perfection." - Chris P. 
  • "Fits very nice. Wider in the toe box than previous versions. Nice and lightweight. Comfortable upper feels really nice on the foot. Fits slightly snug for me, but not uncomfortable." - Jess C.
  • "Very light for a stability shoe. Snug but it stretches with the foot which is really comfortable! This is a good shoe for someone needing light stability, or even a neutral runner. Feels similar to a minimal shoe, but with actual support!" - Jen Y.
  • "I have been running the neutral version of this shoe and slipping it on, I felt like I could still run in this shoe if I felt I needed a little bit of insurance in the shoe. I am really loving the updates to the Pearl shoes and this is no exception." - Kelley L.
