"A good lightweight shoe that I may have to use as a race shoe only"imim

(0)

Quality of Construction

Seems like good quality. My big toes always poke holes in the top of running shoes. I'll see how long it takes for these to get holes.

(5)

Fit

Very nice fit. Good feel on foot, no areas of tightness or looseness.

(5)

Comfort

Very comfortable. No ridges, bumps, protrutions, seams to cause hotspots.

(5)

Adjustability

Currently using Yankz laces. Once shoe is on the only adjustment necessary is to be sure the tongue is flat. A slight tug and it's done.

(0)

Durability

Have only 86 miles on them. So far so good.

(5)

Value

To this point a good value, if no injuries are sustained then value is good.

(3)

Appearance

Sporty look, but it makes me feel like a billboard.

(4)

Performance

Very lightweight. A full 3 ounces lighter per shoe than my Asics Gel 2150s. Good support and cushioning if runner is mid-sole or fore-foot striker. I'm primarily mid-sole but with some heel strike. Bottom of both heels are a little sore (I weigh 177-179). Because this shoe is lower in the heel, I have much more tightness in Achilles and calves. I'd recommend alternating this shoe with current shoe, and lots of stretching, until adaptations are made. Weather hasn't been warm enough to take advantage of the vent holes for air and water.

Strengths

Lightweight, good road feel, comfort, support, looks.

Weakness

Not enough heel cushion for my weight range.
