Customer Reviews

Comments: Pretty awesome shoe! Right out of the box ran two 9 mile training runs and four days later a 50K Ultra without even a small blister. This shoe is very comfortable for longer runs with a smooth responsive ride. I like the ease the shoe goes on and the "sock" liner. Although weighs almost 11oz (size 10)it feel much lighter.
