Great running shoe, but try it on first
on July 30, 2012
The first thing I will say is that for ANY shoe you should try it on before buying. Feet shape/size and running form are different for everyone, so a shoe may work wonderfully for one person and cause considerable pain for another.
That being said, I have purchased multiple pairs of this shoe. I purchased the first pair from a local running store where I was able to test them out, and have purchased subsequent pairs from Amazon because they are cheaper and I already know what size I need.
Some important things to note: I have a very narrow foot. A few other reviewers have complained about the shoe's toe being too narrow. Again, trying on the shoes will quickly resolve this issue. Also, these trainers are light- to moderate-weight, so they will not hold up as long as a heavier shoe like the Saucony ProGrid or Adidas Supernova, but they are (obviously) lighter to run in and are therefore better suited to running half or full marathons.
Case in point: this shoe is great if it fits your foot and running form, but as with any shoe I would at least try it on and, if possible, have your running form evaluated at a running specialty store while wearing the shoes before purchase.
