- Just like the core shoe line, we hold these shoes to the industry’s highest wear test and durability standards. Because of their lightweight construction and fewer materials, runners should generally expect these shoes to last approximately 250-300 miles. Fleet Feet Sports recommends these shoes as a great “second” shoe. These shoes fall into the “minimal” category and should be introduced to your workout regimen with moderation as they will stress the body differently than more traditional running shoes.
