Has some high points...and some danger
on November 16, 2013
I am a size 11.5 narrow in men's. I have a thin low volume foot with a medium arch. Size 12 D was a roomy, comfortable fit (blue and green version). This is without a doubt, the tallest, softest, most luxuriously comfortable shoe I have ever walked around in. Never had a shoe with this much forefoot cushioning. It is literally like walking on a cloud. I got spoiled rotten the first day.
As for running, I did not time it but it feels slow. Like running in soft snow. And then the danger side. This shoe is so tall and soft that it takes very little effort on uneven terrain to roll your ankle. My sample invites that type of injury. Once a little bit of tilt has started, something in the shoulder of the shoe seems to collapse and the shoe just rolls right on over. I upgraded to the Omni 12 which is much more resistant to rolling than this shoe. But the Omni 12 lacks that super luxurious ride. It's still a well cushioned shoe but not nearly as soft as the Omni 11. I run on and off road and decided to opt for safety and leave the Omni 11 at home. I guess you can't have it both ways.
I will keep the Omni 11 for walking and for standing on concrete floors . For that it is absolutely outstanding.
Softest ride ever!
Flat shoe laces that will not work loose no matter how long you wear them.
I can stand on concrete in these all day long. My feet love them.
Feels slow when running.
Set's you up for ankle injuries when on uneven terrain.
