Absolutely Amazing Shoe

I dont think I have anything bad to say about this shoe. I bought it as a mileage shoe (approx. 70km per week), and just a few runs in, I know I'm not going to be disappointed lacing these up every day.
The shoe is as light as my racing flats (hagio), and while there is very little heel to toe drop, I can feel the support they have on my feet. The upper is new, sock like instead of mesh, but I actually find it more comfortable.
If you are looking for a light shoe that has the support to let you run high milage without getting injured, but still be minimalist, then go no further. This is your shoe

I purchased this product for:myself
I purchased this product:over 6 months ago
The athletic skill level of the person using this product is:competitive
This product is primarily used/worn for:training/going to the gym
Bought the Hagio last February for summer training for this falls cross country season. Absolutely love the shoes. They are a great minimalist, with a really grippy forefoot- great for both road, and 'aggressive' trail (roots, rocks loose dirt etc). The shoe looked great, and felt great day after day. I would run approx 60-70km a week in them, and used them 6 days a week. I never really had an issue with using them this much and not having a lot of cushioning on the foot.
My only complaints would be around durability. I ran a few muddy routes in them, going through knee deep water a few times. since then the shoes have been falling apart. I figure its the sand in grit getting into the upper, and rubbing and cutting the fibres holding the shoe together. ive since run at least 200km in them with holes, but they arent quite as comfortable as before.
Pros: lightweight, comfortable, breathable
Cons: non-durable

Details On Gazelle

Just a few questions about the Gazelle that the pictures and description don't answer.
- Is the tongue separate from the body of the shoe? I tried on a pair of Adipure Motion 360 shoes, and the tongue and body of the shoe was all one piece, even though there were laces etc.
-What does the durability of the shoe seem to be? will it stand up to the elements of training for cross country? or should it be used strictly in the field of training for T/F, road races, etc (doesn't seem to have a lot of grip on the bottom in comparison to the Adidas Hagio).

thanks!

New Picture of shoe

Would it be possible to snap a picture of the shoe that you have in the warehouse to compare to this image/image on adidas website? This image appears to be incorrect. Thanks!

2012 shoe?

Im looking at getting the Hagio, but theres some small differences, so I'm wondering if these are the same ones I've read reviews on. Firstly, on the side of this shoe it says 'feather'- on the adidas website the shoe says 'hagio'. also on the bottom of the shoe, the forefoot has black and yellow grip, not just yellow like in this image.

what size to buy?

Ive heard nike spikes have an different fit than most spikes, and to buy a size or two up.. this is saying they are true to size? if I am a 10 in the addias mana, then should I buy a 10 in this shoe? or go half size up because I have a wider foot..

Durability of shoe?

how durable are they? Also, while I will majorly be using them for the 800, if I get to do some other events (like Steeplechase), would they hold up at all? (This wouldn't be as often as the 800- Just whether they'd fall apart if they got wet or anything)

is just the plate plastic? or is it plastic right from toe to heel
