"Overall these are great shoes for training and racing. They provide a good amount of cushioning for a full ironman run or even if you are just doing a sprint tri. The dynamic offset of the shoe takes a couple runs to get used to, but then feels very natural once you get used to it. These have quickly become one of my favorite shoes that I have bought in the past 2 years."corzy666

Quality of Construction

Great construction, I have had them for 3 months and logged about 150 miles at least on them and they look pretty much brand new.

(5)

Fit

They run slightly large compared to some of my other shoes, I had to get a half size down. Other than the sizing, they fit very nice and snug and just hug your foot.

(5)

Comfort

Very comfortable. It is a little weird to get used to Pearl Izumi's "dynamic offset" but once you go out for a few runs and get used to it, it is actually very nice. Out of all of my shoes (I have about 25 pairs) I would put these in my top 3 for comfort.

Durability

Still look new at ~150 miles.

(5)

Value

For the price I paid for them, they are a steal.

(5)

Appearance

I like the looks of the blue color that I purchased.

(5)

Performance

These are great shoes, and have exceeded my expectations. I always used to use Zoot tri shoes, but now I am looking into getting another pair of Pearl Izumi for training and races as well.
