Great shoe, tight fit!
I havent really logged any mileage in these yet to comment on how the run is. However, I feel it is worth noting that they are very tight fitting. I normally run in the distance elite size 9 which is a prefect fit with room around the toes. A size 9 in the Tri Racer was cramped and squashing my toes. Even the 9.5 is tight. I would recommend going up at least a half size on your normal size, maybe even up a full size.
The shoe looks awesome and the quality seems top notch. The fit is secure yet still easy to get on quickly during transition with the tongue and rear loops. Well thought out shoe.

Like running barefoot
This shoe is so minimal it's like running barefoot. Easy to transition from bike to run. Very comfortable without socks. Feels fast.

Great-Fitting Sockless Tri Shoe
Just switched to these shoes after running in Nikes for 20 years. After three weeks of running in them, I'm convinced I made the right move. These shoes are comfortable with a solid fit in the heel and the right amount of space in the toe box. The contoured fit and the lacing system are perfect for my Sprint and Olympic tri needs.

Very comfortable. Hard to put on.
The TRI-racers fit very well. And we're comfortable in the sprint distance triathlons I used them. The design is said to make them easier and faster to put on than a regular show, but this was not true for me. When you insert your foot, the edges roll under and you have to work your fingers around to even it back out. Also, there is a finger hole in the back but if your finger is in it, then it's more difficult to get you foot in. The loop on the front is kind of too small to grab with wet fingers. Maybe all this extra effort only takes 5-10 seconds longer, but it's annoying. I prefer to race short distances in the Distance model.

Quick turn-over, light, overall good shoe
I've had the Tri Racers almost 2 months now and logged nearly 400 miles on them. I have to say that my overall experience is good. Smooth ride, incredibly light allowing for a quick turnover, and makes transitioning a breeze.

That being said I would say there are two main drawbacks to the shoe. First, is that I feel as if I have a lot more heel-slip in this shoe. I've ran exclusively in Newtons since 2011 and never experienced a similar feeling. I'm guessing because of the single piece of material wrapping around the shoe with elastic laces restricts how tight and secure you can get your foot in. The second thing is that the fit seems off. I have worn an 11.5 in Newton in every model without much of a deviation, but this shoe feels so much different, and larger than normal in the toe box.

All-in-all I would have to recommend this shoe for someone looking for a short distance racer that needs the added benefit of quick transitioning. I will stick to my distance s for anything over 5k, even training sessions.
