    I first discovered the Kwicky Blade-Light when a K-Swiss representative had me put them on at an Ironman event. I had always worn Asics or Mizuno before and had suffered from Achilles tendinosis for 2 years so I was wearing special orthotic inserts for that. The K-Swiss guy told me to try to run without orthotics for a little while because these Kwicky Blade-Lights were going to make me run more forward and improve my gate anyway.

    I'm not sure whether that was just sales-talk, but 2 years later I am now on my 8th pair of these shoes and I love them. They are very light and much less bulky than any other shoe I have had before, and they serve me well both for day-to-day run training as during races. You can really feel that once you pick up the pace and lean forward more they provide improved traction (which I guess is the Blade technology). I have not once put the orthotics back in my shoes and my Achilles is pain-free now.

    And the water-repellent fabric feature may sound stupid, but from experience I know that during the run of an Ironman I spend 3 or 4 hours throwing ice and water over myself at every aid station, and these shoes do an incredible job at keeping that water away from my feet, so for me that is a major plus.

    I know the K-Swiss are a little pricy, but for me they are totally worth the money. For reference, in season I run about 30 to 40 miles a week on them (all outdoors and on paved road) and replace them approximately every 3 to 4 months. I then continue wearing them as casual sneakers until the next replacement.

    I've been running "midfoot style" for the past four years, and this is one of the finest shoes for this type of runner. As many folks, I started with a barefoot type shoe--the Vibrams Five Fingers, but this was my transition shoe. The Kwicky Blade Light has a dual-density midsole since I pronate a little, but it doesn't slow you down at all...it's fast! If you're a midfoot striker and need a little support, you can't go wrong with this extremely good shoe. And last year, I came in second overall in a 5K race with this very shoe, so I think it's fast. - Tom, 55, Ballston Spa.

    The arch support is not what I expected.
    Normally I would buy K-Swiss shoes because of this feature but not this model.
    It would be great if this description can be included in your site.
