Comments: I call these shoes "pancake marshmallows" because they're thin soled yet super soft. I'm used to a more structured shoe whereas these feel like wearing slippers. Not much support but that hasn't been a problem.
Comments: Wow, These are some sweet running shoes! They are super light and cushioned. I have the Nike Pegasus and the Nike Lunar Flyknit so, I thought these would be a great addition. I was right! The racers are similar to the Fly knits only lighter. I wear an 8 in the Pegasus and an 8 1/2 in the Fly knits and Racers. Super happy with the fly wire on the outside. It really helps customize the mid foot. I'm hoping to use these for my speed work.

Comments: I purchased this shoe as a lightweight trainer for shorter runs. When my sales person snuck it into the pile she had pulled for me to try, I was really skeptical, it was SO light, and it seemed actually flimsy in appearance. I tried it anyway, and within a half a mile I was very surprised to see how actually supportive the shoe is. It is very nicely snug in the heel, and fits my narrow foot as well as any shoe has. So far I've done up to 7 miles in them and plan to use them for a half next weekend. My only issue is that I seem to be wearing the outer sole very very quickly. But... I'm not the lightest runner, so often the sole wears faster for me. This is my first time in a neutral shoe also, and I find it works well for me. My weekly miles are at about 35-40 currently. I am just coming off a marathon cycle and about to start a new one in a few weeks. The plan is to use these shoes for shorter runs and shorter races. So, it is a great lightweight trainer, not sure how long it will last in comparison to my other shoes. (Saucony Cortana)
