Comments: Despite my initial doubts due to the steep price, I can say these shoes are well worth it! They feel similar to the Adidas AdiZero LTs that have been discontinued, but a little lighter and more responsive. The feel of these shoes when running fast is unparalleled. They were obviously made for speed. The construction is top-notch, and the fit is snug in the heel and midfoot and roomy in the toebox. Yes, they are pink, but it makes me feel dashing.

Comments: Since there were no reviews on here I thought I would contribute my meager review. Upon first inspection, the shoes are made very well. The durability appears a step higher than a lot of the adizero shoes I've inspected. This really comes down to the materials feeling so tough. While being constructed with such strong materials the shoe is incredibly light as well. My size 8US came in just under 3/8lb (6oz.) per shoe. Even the laces were lightweight adizero branded. The finer aesthetic details of the shoe are top notch with perfect seams and no runaway glue. The little choices of highlights placed on the shoe adds a simple appealing appearance that is perfectly balanced between understatement and overstatement. The back heel of the shoe along with the entire outsole is fairly stiff, with the little gripper bottom grabbing onto my carpet. There is a faint grey pattern lining the upper mesh of the shoe. When held up to the light you can almost see through the upper it is so thin, yet feels very durable. Because of this it is extremely well ventilated and with just wiggling my toes I can feel the air current pass through the shoe. The front of the shoe appears strong enough to withstand a lot of toe jabbing if used by a person who tends to abuse their shoes like that. For people who like to wear very fitted or tighter shoes then these should hold up well. I don't foresee this shoe stretching nearly as much as other lightweight shoes on the market. Everything else that is not mentioned here can be found between the several reviews on the internet. Ultimately it is a killer shoe in both aesthetics and durability and expects to be used to the limit that a user can put it though.
