Caution: Lacks support for narrow feet

Because it fits wide-footed runners better, those with narrow feet find it too "big" for their liking. The upper doesn't hug closely around their feet for a more secure fit. 

Scratchy in the heel

The ankle collar sits way too high. There have been numerous comments on the back of the heel rubbing against the skin.

However, if you want to remedy this, you can do so by using higher socks. Runners say it's effective in preventing abrasion at the rearfoot.
