Lightweight and Supportive

Sarah 6 months ago Verified Purchase

These shoes are awesome! Super lightweight with great arch support. My only concern is that the soft portion of the bottom is already showing wear after about 30 miles. Watching to see how they hold up but overall very pleased with the performance so far!

Great Shoe

I am very difficult to fit with a comfortable shoe but this one is excellent. The staff in the store are very helpful going out of their way to find the best shoe for you.

Ended up returning

MrunsPGH 8 months ago Verified Purchase

I bought these a month ago and tried them 6 separate runs. Roughly 3-7 miles each time as an athlete and someone who loves running! I have never in my life had problems with my calves or my strike when I run. These shoes gave me the worst calf cramps and strains and I know it was them because it was the only thing I changed in my running routine. I purchased an 8.5 wide which the size and feel felt great! Definitely a great wide shoe but I returned due to the calf cramps.

Just Right

J. 8 months ago Verified Purchase

A perfect shoe for me. Fits your foot snuggly both at instep and heel. Just the right amount of cushion. Comfortable but doesn’t give you that unbalanced feeling. This is my second pair.
