One of the best cushioned/stability trainers. Is it being phased out? RRS doesn't have many sizes and hasn't for a while.

Just wore them on a 20-miler and they held up great. Outstanding cushioning and support with more than enough toe room. So much room that I had a little problem with my foot sliding but changing the lacing helped. 6'2" 215lbs and slight pronator

I'm an Ex-NBA player and 10 years of playing really beat the feet up. Recently training for Tri's and the Nike Kantara II is the only shoe that allows me to put in heavy miles without overuse injuries....I'm 6'6" and 235lbs. Excellent.

By far the best cushioned stability shoe I've ever worn. I have 200+ miles on these shoes, which I rotate with a pair of Brooks NXS. I am a bigger runner (5.-10./190 lbs), average 15-25 miles weekly, and try to run at least 1 marathon annually. The Kantaras have been outstanding for runs up to 8 miles. Typically, the shoes tend to fatigue my feet for anything over 8 miles (no clue why). The Kantaras complement a stiff and ridged shoe well (i.e. NXS). The only drawback is that they seem to be wearing down quickly - I don't expect to get over 300-350 miles out of them. I too have begun to notice a squeak, but it doesn't really bother me. Overall, I have been very pleased with the shoe and would not hesitate to purchase another pair.

This is probably the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. The cushioning is amazing, and so is it's stability. With that being said, there are two huge draw backs. First, the shoe has a lot of bulk to it. If it was smaller though, you probably wouldn't have such great cushioning or stability. Either way, I like my shoes to be a little bit smaller. This shoe also has the same problem as my CONSTANTLY squeaks. If it wasn't for that, I would wear them more often, but that is a huge drawback.
