Customer Reviews

Comments: I was previously running in the Ride 5 but realized I needed more cushioning. I have a wide foot with a low arch but no issues with pronation. First time out did 15 miles and afterward the severe leg & knee stiffness I had was experiencing was very mild.
From: Murphy, Greenville NC, USA

Comments: The 2E width actually [feels like a] 1E and if you really need 2E you will know the difference. Previous models had more width.
From: David, State College, PA, USA

Comments: This is not a typical shoe I'd purchase; however, I'm just coming off a 5th metatarsal fracture and needed something stiff, stable, and soft.  These fit the bill. Its amazing how light they are considering they're in the same shoe class as straight last behemoths from Brooks and NB.   Upper materials are extremely soft and the inside liner is smooth as silk.  I'm a size 12 in Puma, Nike, and Adidas and these fit true to size.
