These shoes damaged my heels - a terrible disappointment
on October 21, 2012
These shoes have been a terrible dissapointment!!
They were recommended to me as the "absolute best running shoe", and the reviews here would have also left that impression, but my experience with these shoes have been terrible - not to mention an expensive failure - I paid over US$100 for these shoes, the most I have ever spent on a pair of running shoes.
The main issue is the cushioning (or should I say lack of cushioning) in the heel. It is so incredibly poor that after a few runs (I kept hoping the shoes just needed some breaking in) the pains in my heels became to bad that I have had to get treatment and my running programme has stalled. I have never had this particular issue with any pair of running shoes I have tried, including many far less expensive ones.
I am switching and have ordered the Asics Cumulus
