As an avid barefoot / zero drop enthusiast on a budget, these have me seriously excited. I’ve literally considered buying Jim Greens and just cutting off the heel and removing the shank. I really hope that they are reasonably priced here in SA. The dollar price is a bit on the steep side. Even then though, these look like they will be able to last many years longer than anything by Altra or Vivobarefoot, so that might justify the price (which is still less than Altra or Vivo).
I don’t see them on the Jim Green website yet, but there appears to be an empty placeholder for them, so I’ve got a good feeling.
I received my Rangers yesterday morning. I’ll be wearing them for the second day now.
They are supremely comfortable for me, right out of the box. Only around the ankle it needs a bit of wearing in. With the zero drop and the wide, flat sole it is very stable. I’ve been climbing up and down ladders, walking on roofs etc.
They smell fantastic, I’m pretty sure they were only finished a couple of days ago.
