Customer Reviews

Comments: I have these running shoes, I wore them running thirteen practice miles on part of the Steamtown Marathon Course. They are a great shoe, and when they get old you will feel some pain in your Achilles tendon. that's how I knew I needed a new pair. If you have a low arch they are great.
