Partially agreed and fixed.

That is exactly me.
I'm in the minority with these. I'm a decent runner, and there's NO WAY I'd pay $150 on a shoe that I'd put some serious mileage on or even as a casual shoe, especially with how bad these felt to me. With the F1s, on the other hand, I'd gladly pay that price, as they have pretty much have what the originals ZFKs lacked, imho; the COMFORT of the added sockliner, and the responsiveness and softness with the Lunar Bottomless Carrier. I know I'd be really tempted to run in them, but, for $150, I'd rather maintain them and use them for casual wear.
