Have been through at least 2000 bucks worth of shoes over the past 3 years trying to find something that allows me to run 4-5 days a week without pain. I was very happy with the Kinvaras until my regular runs got around 5 miles (definately needed more cushion underfoot) These shoes are very similar in design (still 4mm heel/toe) to the Kinvaras (as far as I can tell) with MORE CUSHION. They are a little bit heavier, but on the road I didn't notice after the 1st run. I know the price is crazy, but these shoes are so worth it. I've put about 40 miles on them so far and I don't have any complaints...can even run 4 days in a row and feel pretty good. P.S. I'm 42 and about 145.

My best shoe of over 20 models!
The Cortanas have quickly become my favorite trainer and love them so much I often wear them in races instead of my other favorite the Kinvara 2's. I run over 45 miles per week and these are the only shoes I can run long runs in (over 15) without foot or knee pain. In fact, I have run in other shoes had slight knee pain, then switched to these mid-run and had the pain go away in the first few minutes in the Cortanas. I have over 20 different models of running shoes, all neutral and neutral Plus and this pair beats every one of them for comfort and responsiveness. One thing I love is how unrestricting the top of the shoe is, nothing like other shoes I own, except Zoot Kalanis, another favorite in 3rd place. Finally, I found the ideal shoe! There are NO negatives I can think of for these shoes.
So far, so good
Took them out on some short runs (2-3) miles, as I want to build before regular use. So far, comfortable ride, fits well, with nice flexibility. A couple of things: I'm pretty much mid-heel striker so these encourage that, I have bunions and these accommodate them, and they're my first shoe with a lower heel to toe drop. Used to use Asics, but I think I might be heading back to Saucony..Hope to use for my next half marathon. Overall, a solid shoe to step away from heel strike, but have some cushion in the process.
