Weaknesses: heavy....hurt my feet....added almost 3 mins to a 5k....made me run flat footed at best, almost impossible to get onto my toes, despite the "lift" in the toe area....£110 wasted.
Overall: been running Mizuno shoes for years, so when my nivana 5's wore out I got these, expecting improvement, not a noticable decline in performance. plodding round the shop was okay, though a 5k took almost 3 mins longer than expected. weather was good, I was good, only difference was the shoes. That inspired a testing session local to home.. I ran 1km in my xc shoes, feet fine. 100m in these, and it was obvious they are not right, almost limping after 100m. I went back home, changed into my old, worn out shoes, and could run normally + sprint fairly hard. I can't recomend these, maybe fine for someone else - anyway, if you fancy a really low mileage pair..... The average scores are for things I can't comment on - eg durability. have only done 15 km, so no wear yet. Fitted well though, felt nice while sat on the sofa..
