Customer Reviews

Comments: I've since put about 80 miles on this shoe and it's really grown on me. The cushion was softer than I was used to, but over time I came to appreciate the long miles it allowed me to log, and I ended up favoring it over harder shoes. The upper remains trouble free, and the whole shoe is just very comfortable.

Comments: I thought these shoes were just okay. The uppers are excellent, soft, breathable, true-to-size and no rubbing or hotspots whatsoever. The soles seem to be the weak point. They feel too thick to provide road feel, but yet don't seem to have much rebound. I like a built-up sole only if the sole design provides some function. These just seem to land with a dull thud.
