I am 5'10, 160. Slight pronator, but having gravitated to a more mid-forfoot strike over the last 1.5-2 years I can now wear some neutral shoes and be ok. My knees and hamstrings are thankful for the change and I highly recommend that running style.
After much research, I bought this shoe for a marathon. I wanted something a little lighter and a little more flexible than the Nike Elite+, Brooks Ravenna, and Mizunno Inspire I trained in (though I love the flexibility of the Ravenna for a support shoe).
The Aegis 2's are very comfortable, lightweight, run on the narrower side (great for me), and are pretty flexible (beneficial for mid-forefoot running). The arch support is OK but could be a little better for me. I averaged only 30-35 miles/week (very low for a marathon, I know), but I got my long runs in which are key. Ran a 3:15 in the Aegeis, but my calves and achilles had to do more work than they were used to doing. I definitely recommend this shoe for someone that does not pronate too much, for any distance up to a half marathon or a little more, and wants to run fast in a lighter weight shoe. But if you need a tad more support (especially for a marathon) and are not an elite runner, the Addidas Tempo or similar may be a better choice (though I have never tried the Tempo). Also, I did jump rather abruptly into the Aegis from the aformentioned shoes, so that may have contributed to the extra calf and achilles stress over the for long distance.
I would recommend to a friend if they fit the profile I mentioned above.
Great marathon shoe!
I can use this shoe for a wide variety of workouts- tempo runs, intervals, and long distance. It feels like it sits close to the ground, yet it has enough cushioning for distance runs. Always wore racing flats for marathons, but I might wear this for my next one.
Exchanged a pair of Asics Skyspeeds for these. These are 1000 times better. The asics were knotting my calves and giving me blisters, all of which went away once I got the Aegis 2s. Very comfortable and very light. Would definitely buy again.
Great Marathon Trainer!
This is a great middle/long distance trainer. It is light enough to feel good running at tempo speed and has just enough structure in the arch and cushioning to keep your legs feeling good on the long run.
SHRED YOUR RUNS
get the darn shoe, its amazing, light, comfy and looks amazing, if your a slow runner don't get it, you will kill the cool shoe.
Worked as expected
Great for running forever on a tartan track.
