    Im going to be getting new shoes real soon and these were the 2 I was looking at the most? What do you think and what other shoes do you reccommend?

    Breathe free fit like a glove, but that's not necessarily a good thing as they can feel tight, especially on a wide foot. I don't buy that they're as breathable as you think. After all, I do wear socks.
    ACMI are very cushy at first, but all that puffiness fades after a few practice sessions. Something about the fit rubs my foot the wrong way in the middle of the shoe and tells me its not for someone without a very high arch (pardon my double negative).
    For me: Breathes beats ACMI

    It seems to me that the breathe free toebox is relativly low. Its hard for me to wear a 9.5 because of this and a 10 is too big. So I use the adidas A3 forefoot which i use in 9.5 and has more roomy toebox.

    The ACMI's are much better fit and support, but the Breathe's have that plastic grid which can flex and pinch the top of your foot,plus the ACMI's ahve a better tread pattern and wider sole.,the Breathe's rubber is just a little softer.
