Customer Reviews

Comments: First time ever trying the K-Swiss. Have always wanted to and now...... wow, right out of the box they feel awesome! Going to give them a real workout at a Bootcamp class, but I can tell they will do just fine. The fit is perfect.Not too wide in the toe box, snug at the heel, and size seems to run true for me. Event hough these have more of a heel toe drop than I am used to, so far I cannot tell any leg fatigue for me. I think I may have found yet another great shoe!

Comments: I love this shoe!  I had been wearing the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 12 and with all the changes Brooks made on the shoe the fit was not working for me.  I wanted something new that would be more comfortable for my fit.  I do have a hard time finding running shoes because I over pronate and need a stability shoe. I found this shoe on and compared it to the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 12 and saw how close they were in resemblance, so I purchase the K-Swiss Blade-Max Stable and Love It!
