"I bought these shoes for their supposed "adaptable" cushioning. I didn't notice any difference while walking or running slow/fast. I am 175 pounds and found these shoes to be way too firm from the very first run. I guess they would be considered "fast" racers because of the lack of cushioning but it did not make for very comfortable long run training."tsauder
