Strengths: Perhaps I will wear them as a weight training shoe to build up strength in legs. There again I could just train in my wellington boots and use these as an expensive door stop. If you are short they will make you an inch taller.
[Update 10/10/07] None relaly - quite comfortable I suppose
Weaknesses: Heavy. Cumbersome. A bit like I imagine it would be like to run in clogs. Ugly (not that I would care if they were a good shoe).
[Update 10/10/07] Well they are far too heavy and I have abandoned doing races (recently up to 10k) in them though I'm using them for steady training sessions etc. when speed doesn't matter and I see them as providing additional weight to my legs (strength exercises!)
Overall: Annoyed because I was lead to believe they were an alternative to the Asics 2120 which I like a lot. Cannot really think of a positive word(s)to say about this monstrosity of a shoe. Oh I forgeot they are comfortable but then so are my wellies.
[Update 10/10/07] I'll be glad when they wear out so I can revert back to ASICS.
