I now have about 400 miles on these shoes and I still have no complaints.
My only complaint is that the sole eventually will separate from the foam in the heel, and I tend to wear outer side of the toe box pretty fast (forefoot striker). I average about 8 miles/day when I am training, and these stand up pretty well to that abuse.
Great color combo. I am ready for a new pair which is reasonable considering my use.
These in particular did not iritate my skin - a former pair I purchased had some other material that did not work well with me.
As for these Brooks, I'm 5'9" 150 lbs with a normal arch and neutral pronation. While training I've been logging 30+ mile weeks and I've been on these Brooks for a month. Out of the box, I ran 6 miles with no problems. At first, the soles felt a little soft but they were responsive and I adjusted quickly. The upper is super breathable and the shoe is lightweight; which, for someone my size with a long way to run are two very important things.
I have very mild off/on achilles tendonitis and after the first 6 mile loop I felt the ache of one of my tendons coming on. I took a few hour break and the ache subsided. Then I inserted some PROFOOT heel inserts I got here on Amazon I had in my old shoes. Following the 2nd 6 mile loop I had no aches or symptoms.
I also ran another 6 mile loop on day #2 for speed and had no recurring symptoms. So after 12 miles on the FIRST day of getting the shoes and another 6 miles the next day, I'm very happy with these Brooks. The shoe is light enough and cushion effect adequate.
LOL...the shoe lace length is just right (previous review stated too long)
