"My first dedicated running shoe. After my first triathlon season, I was starting to develop some significant pain in my feet after my runs. Visiting the experts at a local running shop (Fleet Feet in Annapolis, MD) helped me find out the reason. I was misled at a different shop into buying Neutral shoes, and after spending time trying at a lot of different models the rep pulled out these for me to try. From the second they were on I knew I found my shoe. Between these shoes and the set of inserts I was recommended, I was back to running paid free within a few weeks. I've nearly doubled my training distance this year with this shoe on, and I'm still going pain free. It's probably time to re-up just due to the mileage, but I will gladly be buying another pair of these."skobasteve

Ease of use

Added some quick laces, and they were ready for the road.

(5)

Quality of Construction

I've been training in these for 9 months now and they're still holding up great. Totally serving their purpose.

(5)

Fit

I apparently have an awkward shaped foot and it's difficult for me to find a running shoe that doesn't move on my heel. These were locked right on me as expected from the moment I put them on.

(5)

Comfort

Haven't been able to try them without socks, but they've served their purpose of keeping me pain-free while training/racing.

(5)

Adjustability

I threw a pair a quick laces on them and they were totally ready to go.

(5)

Durability

I'm no marathoner (yet), but these shoes have held up better than I ever could have expected.

(5)

Value

The fact that I was able to continue training at all made these worth every penny

(5)

Appearance

I got the silver/orange models. Orange is one of my favorite colors, so these match with a lot of my outfits.

(5)

Customer Service

The expert at my local running shop took the time to show me a lot of different models before landing on this.

(5)

Performance

They've greatly improved my running through this season, and have provided everything I could have asked for.

Strengths

Stability, durability, style, comfort.

Weakness

I can't use them without socks during race without blisters forming.
