With all the positive reviews I've been seeing about this shoe, I had to try them for myself. Albeit the slightly strange appearance (not your typical running shoe), I was not dissapointed. The shoe was very comfortable and light, but offered me enough support such that I would be happy to wear them over a 5k or in a marathon. I have yet to attempt a triathalon, but if I do, these shoes will be my top training shoe.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
