This shoe IS NOT for the person that needs arch support! For those of you that state "this shoe has great arch support" you are wrong. It's a fantastic shoe, but it's purpose is not geared toward arch support. If you have bad knees and are prone to things like plantar fascitis, then stay away from this shoe!!! If you have a neutral step and are looking for an efficient shoe that can guide you on long fast runs, then this shoe is most certainly for you. Also, if you are overweight, this shoe will not compensate for the extra pounding you place upon your feet during a slow run.
I have a natural step, so this shoe does great for me. I am a runner with a mile pace of any where from 6 to 8 minutes, depending on the mileage I run. I enjoy these shoes because they deliver a soft cushioned ride which seems to propel me to accomplish a fast and effective run. I take them on the trails and roads. I have had two pairs so far and will remain an enthusiast for the Gel Lyte 33 series.
