Those seeking a natural feel from a running shoe have a popular option from Reebok. The signature feature of this shoe, its individual flex nodes on the outsole, enable independent, multi-directional movement on any surface, be it on or off road. Main Features
Weight: 9.4 ounces (Men’s size 9)
Blown-rubber forefoot blends comfort and traction.
Slim micro-suede tongue lends to a minimalist feel.
Removable Ortholite sockliner accommodates insoles to customize for any stride.
Additional Information Introduced in January 2012, Reebok’s RealFlex Optimal is designed around natural movement with 76 individual flexible nodes underfoot that move freely in any direction. This allows the foot to flex naturally as it progresses through each stride, which is unique to each runner and can vary with different surfaces. While many minimalist shoes feature a nearly flat drop in height from heel to toe, the RealFlex Optimal maintains a 10mm drop. This retains enough cushioning for longer distances, balancing that with the flexibility of the minimalist-inspired outsole. The upper consists of a single layer of mesh, for breathability, but adds a hot-melted appliqué for reinforcement and aesthetic appeal. A full collar lining and additional heel counter provide extra comfort during wear, and a molded sockliner adds cushioning.

I was looking for something comfortable to wear to work (hospital setting with scrubs). I have enjoyed these shoes very much. I have a previous pair I use for running and my wife feels these are the best shoes ever (she owns three pairs...just different colors).
Everything was good. only thing is that bottom is a little bit narrow but not alot. if you're not good at balancing then you might sprain your ankle. Dont worry about it too much but its good price and comfortable.
Pros: lightweight, good cushioning, breathable, comfortable
