Customer Reviews

Comments: This is the single best running shoe I have ever worn, and barring its discontinuation I see no reason to ever stop using it. I do all of my training in this shoe because of its weight and the zero-drop platform; I find that it helps me to maintain my form and run more comfortably. Have run a few road races in these and they're great for that too. I am a D1 collegiate runner doing 60-70mpw at about 6:30/mile pace, 6'4" and about 160 lbs.
