I was looking for a good pair of running shoes and these were on sale at a local store for $39.99 so I tried them on, liked them and brought them home.
I did not give it too much thought as my husband was asking me to make a decision (after 1+ hrs looking) so I liked them and they were the last ones I tried on. With that being said, lets start my review:
Color: I really liked the charcoal/black/magenta ones, they are really nice and not too in your face
Size: I usually wear a 8.5 but my toe was already touching the end so I got a 9 instead
Width: I felt the 8.5 was a bit tight as well, so getting the 9 helped with that
Heel: When I tried them on in the store, I wore thicker socks, when I tried them at home I wore the small, thin socks. My heels kept slipping and it felt as if the shoes was going to come out, so every step I took my heel was moving up and down. Maybe the 0.5 bigger did made a difference after all.
Arch: shoes have some arch support, which might be great for some but unfortunately for me I have a low arch and after walking around the house to see how they felt, I realized they were not for me. This is for someone with a higher arch probably
Sole: multi surface sole, it looks like trail running would be no problem. It is a hard sole though, if you are used to softer soles, you might not like this one.
I gave it 4 stars because regardless of the fact that these are not for me because of my arch, that is not a shoe related issue but more of a "me" thing. The sole being so hard is what made me give this shoe a four star review.
