I really like the shoes. They seem to run narrow, but that's perfect for me since I need to wear narrow Nikes or Asics. They are holding up well for my ~25 mi/wk. Biggest drawback is that when I run on packed-dirt trails, gravel pieces always get stuck in the treads. Rocks as large as a 1-inch diameter get stuck in the heel as well.

As your sister, with similarly narrow feet, I love this shoe. Though I can second your criticism by pointing out that snow also can get packed into that crevasse as well and be a big pain in the winter time. It leads to alot of foot stompin' during a snowy run.
