'Not the lightest racer around but they are fast (and comfy)!'
Strengths: I'm using these for speedwork and tempo sessions, the faster you can run in these the better the energy return, I am actually loving the action/ reaction technology. I love the bright colour too although it may be a bit flashy for some people! They are extremely comfy!
Weaknesses: The price is the biggest let down! I have only clocked around 50 miles on mine at the moment and although they are wearing well they do seem slightly less durable than the Newton Motions which i guess should be expected!
Overall: I really rate this shoe, I prefer to use the motion for longer distance as it is slightly more durable and has a thicker insole! For anything upto half marathon this shoe is great!
Strengths: Great fit, lightweight, good for midfoot running
Weaknesses: price and limited availability
Overall: This shoe took a while to break in and I wasn't sure about them at first but after 100 miles they are my comfiest, most supportive road shoe! I midfoot run naturally so I didn't need to work too hard to get used to them, even so it took a few months before I was happy! They come up quite small so I would order half a size larger than normal!
'great lightweight neutral shoe cushioned enough for long distances.'
Strengths: Compared to many other rival shoes these are fairly lightweight, yet still cushioned enough for long distances. I completed a marathon in mine as well as all the training leading upto it. I have also ditched my racers since having these as they work well for short fast runs too! These are a great fit and comfy from the first time worn. Being a mid foot striker I love that they don't have the bulky heel of many other shoes. Mine have done over 300 miles now and are still faring well!
Weaknesses: No real grumbles! Seem to feel slippier on some surfaces (concrete paving slabs) than all of the other road shoes I have had but I've never actually slipped over!
Overall: Great shoe will be buying the same again!
