Let me start this review by saying that I prefer a neutral running shoe with a 4 mm drop. The Brooks Pure Flow 3 and the Saucony Kinvara were great shoes for me in the past. If you prefer a taller drop or you need a support shoe, this probably isn't the shoe for you, but if you're like me, then this shoe was love at first wear! The full-length EVERUN insole results in far less foot-fatigue and much more cushioned ride. The ISO lacing system is perfectly snug where I want it to be which is important because I've had some shoes where it clamped down in the wrong areas. My favorite thing is the crystallized rubber on the bottom of the shoe. I feel like it grips the ground even in wet and snowy conditions.
I've put about 60 miles on these shoes and it seriously makes running more enjoyable for me. I've read some reviews where people talk about how they need more arch support or they want more cushion; that tells me that they don't really know what type of shoes is right for them. Go to a true running store and get an evaluation to see which type of shoes are the best for you before you start buying running sneakers (especially sneakers that cost $160!!!). I had the ability to demo these on a 6-mile run before I even considered purchasing them so even though they were more money than I like to spend on shoes, I knew that they were the perfect fit for me.
If you get them, I hope you love them as much as I do! Enjoy!!!
