The LT2s live up to the high standard in performance that the original LTs had to offer (as well as the XC flats before that). Though there has been a couple trade offs and changes in looks, it will be assured that fast times WILL be hit and the LT2s shall not disappoint.
They are absolutely solid, minimalist running shoes that WILL outdo other flats on the course. It's light, mostly breath-able and has excellent traction. I recently retired my falling-apart original LTs and enlisted these in more hard run arsenal; they lived up to the task and exceeded expectations, I PR'd in my 8 miler tempo run. Another bonus is the fact that they look incredibly durable and more so than the original LTs.
However that does come with a trade-off, slightly more bulk, a sillier design and a bit less breath-ability. However, for what the rather small cons benefit, it is completely worth it.
Get these shoes. Treat yourself to faster times. These will not fail.
Feels half size too small
