Unfortunately I do all my running on the treadmill at the gym, and I was quite adamantly banned from wearing them in public. They are the dorkiest looking shoes that ever existed.
I've gone as far as 23K in mine, and I'm comfortable going further. They've come out with a couple of new road models- a thicker, more cushioned one, and a racing one.
Totally agree about dorkiness- I have the black version of the original Instinct. The Instinct 1.5 looks quite a bit better- I read that they are finally make enough money to hire a designer, so the newer versions are much flashier looking.
