"Environmentally Neutral," minimal, light weight Trail Running Shoe

END stands for Environmentally Neutral Designs  and I like how the company promotes itself and lives up to it's promise of "Performance + Responsibility"

This was the most comfortable running shoe I've worn. It flexible lightweight and surprisingly well built for such a minimally designed shoe. The heal gives good energy return and feels like it absorbs impact well too. And it feels like I can run a bit faster in these shoes than my other shoes because the design helps promote landing on the ball of the foot.

My main complaint was that it was a bit expensive. I found it for $55 at Amazon.com. Maybe if the did away with the box it could have been even more minimal. If they get more sales and the economies of scale start to kick in, maybe these very minimal but well designed shoes will go down in price. I would be a big time evangelist for this shoe if it cost $30-40. I also think they are working on some quality control qinks as the right shoe got torn a bit while the left shoe is holding up great. I've had them for half an year and wore them almost everyday and I can probably go another 6+ months before having to thinking about replacing them. I'm glad END is making durable shoes. They also are researching giving away shoes to under privileged children.

I do want to support environmentally conscious companies. So check it out. They do sell this model and other models at REI.
