I run 20-25 per week and was looking for a little more cushion than my normal go to Asic2000/2100 series. I only run due to triathlon, and running is my weakness - weighing 175 (185 in winter), I am not a light runner. I wore these out of the box on a 10 miler and they felt great. The stability and cushion was perfect. The slightly reduced heel to toe drop was not really noticed - being only 1mm or so from my normal shoes. Have about 30miles on them. I bought same size as I wear in Asics and they fit perfect. Just waiting to see about durability or I would have given 5 stars. If durable, they are my new trainers.
