I am looking for a light-weight trainer. I have got on well with the wave rider 13 previously, however found that my right heel would slide out at the back. I have got some adizero bostons, but they are giving my symptoms of plantar fasciitis.

Can anyone recommend the sky speed or precision 11?

I wear the wave precision and it's an excellent shoe. Haven't tried the asics one though

How does the precision grip the heel?

I just recently got a pair of the sky speed and am very happy with them, very light and comfortable

Again, may I ask how the fit around the heel is?

Josh: the Precision grips the heel just fine. I did notice, and I've read it somewhere on here before as well, they feel a bit high around the outside of the ankle and this did cause a little discomfort early on in runs. I've not noticed it on the last few runs in these shoes, so I think they just needed a bit of use to break them in. Nice enough shoe; quite stiff compared to the WR 13 though.

How does the toe box compare to the WR13? I find the WR13 has a toe box too big for my liking - I want to feel snug and compact.

Josh: I would say it was more compact/snug.
