Echoing Frank on the traction. No issues under typical conditions. One thing I will say though, is that the toe has a tendency to catch on the carpet, make you trip a little and cause the sole to peel from the midsole. I think this problem could be solved by making the toe more rounded. If the toe sloped in a way that made it progressively thinner towards the tip/front, like a ramp, it would probably solve much of the problem.
