Comments: I LOVED my cortanas and naturally moved to the cortana 2's when those were worn out. Moving on to the cortana 3 and I am hugely disappointed. The toe box is snug when first put on, but after "breaking them in" they never got more comfortable. Instead, I have 50 miles on them and hot spots on the sides of my feet after just a couple of miles. Definitely not the high mileage shoes the previous models were.

Comments: I love my Cortana's (DEBUT Cortana), so I bought 2 pairs. However, these feel so much like my Kinvara 4's. I am keeping mine, but Cortana 3's don't feel as flexible as the original shoe. I did not have any problem with the sizing- it stayed my same size in these. Overall, not a bad shoe and I'll continue to run in them.

Comments: These are more narrow in the toe box and the cushion doesn't seem to be as adequate as the cortana 2. I am a big fan of saucony cortana, but this shoe is disappointing. I feel like they are trying to make the shoe lighter and more minimal much like their kinvara, but they have gone too far.

Comments: These seem to run more than a 1/2 size small. My Cortana 2's are 10.5 but my recently purchased 3's at 10.5 are too small in the toe area. It seems to be more curved at the end of the shoe.
