Customer Reviews

Comments: Wanted to like the shoe as I love racing in the Adidas Rocket and Adios shoes and wanted a slightly more substantial shoe for long distance training.  While it is certainly more substantial than the Adios (i.e., longer life), it is just simply much too firm in the forefoot to be comfortable for me.  Found the Lunaracer to do the trick for a cushier ride on longer distance training runs.
