Features & Benefits:
Lightweight and responsive, with just the amount of needed stability
I'm an overpronator but also a mid/forefoot striker. I want a fast shoe for Boston, but I also need support or else I start to get injured. These shoes are perfect. I've done four speed and marathon pace workouts in them totaling 41 miles. Each workout is 10 to 12 miles each and my feet feel great afterwards. When I pick up the pace, the shoes feel fast and have a smooth ride. The heel is constructed in a way where it doesn't get in your way at all. The only recommendation I have is to use the extra lace hole to secure your heel in place better, otherwise the heel might be loose. My heel was slipping a bit for the first two runs, but then the ride was perfect once I starting using the extra lace hole. The laces are long enough so you can do this and still tie your shoes fine!

For background info, I am 5'6", 135 lbs, am a moderate overpronator, and have high arches. These shoes sounded appropriate for me, but the first day or two I used them they felt less supportive and less cushioned than expected. After 3-4 days of wear, I developed an unusual sharp knee and surrounding musculature pain that I could not ignore or figure out how to fix, even with arch supports. Unfortunately, these are definitely being returned.
These are a miss
I wanted to like these, but they definitely are not going to work. While these shoes fit well, my knee and surrounding muscles began to have considerable pain after a day or two of wearing them, the extent of which was very unusual. They also don't feel like a level 4 cushion, either, especially for someone who weighs 135 lbs. They are attractive on and fit like they should, but with that kind of pain I had to switch to my worn-out shoes until I could exchange them.
would not buy again. I actually returned it, first time.
Claimed to be a mild supportive shoe with a 8mm toe drop but "felt" like a huge drop and found myself "slapping" rather than "tempoing"
Maybe this is why it is discontinued so soon. I have never returned a shoe, but did this one.
