2nd pair; Izumi owner for life
on February 10, 2014
Over a year ago I got the tomato/blue (like others said it's a bold, not necessarily pretty look) and fell in love with them, which is why I just bought my second pair, but in orchid/blackberry. They are a little less 'in your face' and more of a nice looking shoe. No matter the color they are awesome shoes!
They are very light, comfortable, and offer support throughout the foot, even up around the back of the ankle and Achilles. They lasted about a year of 15-20 miles of cement/concrete running a week before the tread was pretty worn down. I'm a mid foot striker with plantar fasciitis in my right foot and these made running a lot easier and much less painful.
I've thrown them in the washer over 6 times and they are incredibly durable with no sign of wear...even after the washer cleanings. (Note, I let them air dry.)
I'll own Izumi running shoes for the rest if my life!
