Awesome shoe. Comfortable, good-looking. I have been using some variation of this show for a couple of years. One complaint is that it seems to wear out somewhat quickly especially in the heel.

    Recommended by running store a few years ago, I have gone through difference generation of the model. I have tried other big brand name shoes, but none measures to the syncropace. However I am a runner on a budget. At a price of well over $100, they only last for around 8 months of regular running. Other than that, I highly recommend them.

        These are so light and comfortable that you do not even know they are there. This is my second pair and I will keep getting them. Only negative I gave is traction. They are fine on wet roads, but you get on any wet metal or grating and you can feel them slip. Not really a problem for me.

          I've been running the Brooks Infinitis for about 2 years now and loving them, I run both as part of my job (military) and recreationally and was upset when Brooks cancelled the line. Took a chance on a new brand and am glad I did, for better performance and comfort. I am only withholding the final star because I can't honestly comment on the durability right now. Plus, THEY ARE OH SO STYLISH AND TRENDY!!

            Comments about Mens Pearl Izumi syncroPace III Running Shoe:

            I love this shoe. Out of the entire Pearl Izumi line, most of which I'm very found of, this shoe is a standout. Here's why, I'm 160-170lbs., 5'-8" and run some of my workouts at 6:00/mile. That really is too heavy to run that speed and most shoes let me know it. Either by breaking down quickly (less than 175 miles) or with leg strain. I rip thru shoes after 200 miles. I get 250 comfortable miles with these. One pair gave me 325 miles, a record for me. I'm an average runner with average gait and average mechanics. I recommend this shoe to anyone who is pushing the envelope, running high milage and will need support along the way.

              I love these shoes. I have a wide foot and even special ordered wide shoes were not as comfortable as these shoes in a standard width (so they must run wide). I've tried Asics and Saucony but I never found one that was "just right". These felt great the first time out and have been great since. If you need mild support and like a wide toe box, try these shoes.

              Comments about Mens Pearl Izumi syncroPace III Running Shoe:

              I'm giving it 4 stars for the fit and feel/ride, but these definitely don't provide moderate stability- more like mild. The upper is awesome and the cushioning is nice and firm, the stability is just not there. It doesn't hold a candle to the nike triax or adrenaline in terms of pronation control and those are moderate stability shoes- that is why the other reviewer thought the Kayano was superior. It could stand to lose an ounce in weight also. So if you want a very comfortable shoe and are neutral or have very slight pronation, this shoe would probably work great.

              Pearl Izumi running shoes are overrated. I think because they are a trendy choice right now and that everyone wants to sing the praises of these shoes...but believe me the Asic Gel Kayano is by far a superior shoe. I'm 6'2" 200lbs and run approximately 25-30 miles per week...have run numerous races and marathons...point I'm making is I know running and running shoes....and believe me these shoes are not nearly as wonderful as everyone else likes to proclaim....I got sucked in to all the hype and bought a pair this past Spring...and immediately new I made a mistake. I hoped that after running in them for awhile they'd break in and become more comfortable....never has happened...I since have purchased another pair of Asic Gel Kayano's and use my Pearl Izumi's to hold down the shoe rack in my closet....don't get fooled like I did....the cool design and wonderful reviews are probably from people who want to make a statement by running in a lesser know but trendy running shoe...sure people
