Strengths: Not as heavy and stiff as i thought they would be.Love the lumpy laces which stay done up all the time.A not-too-bad looking shoe.Having been out of running for almost a year with achilles probs i was surprised when my new physio told me to try MC shoes.Picked these up for £40 online and over the last 6 runs have had no achilles issues at all.The fit is good (i have narrow feet) and they don't feel any heavier than my mizuno inspires did.I would deffo buy more of these.
Weaknesses: Haven't actually found anythign wrong with them at all.
Overall: switched to these on advice from a ultra runner.brilliant light weight shoe,not too much cushioning, worn stright from the box.run up to 13 miles so far but could easily run a mrarthon in these.
Strengths: worn straight from the box with no problems.Very light and so groovy looking.(ladies version!!)
Weaknesses: not sure about using these for high-mileage.
Overall: Great shoe,I love the colours in the ladies version.Only paid £35 for these from sportsshoes.com so a great bargain.I use these with my orthotics with no problems.Not overly cushioned which suits me well but maybe would need more if i were to do high mileage runs for marathon training.These also have long laces which is a bonus too.
Strengths: Very light and comfortable.Look good.Great fit around the heel and roomy in the toe box.I even like the long laces !!
Weaknesses: None so far.
Overall: I was recommended these and boy are they good.Used straight from the box, no blisters or anything.Light and comfortable but cushioned enough for my long runs too.I wear orthotics and they fit perfectly with them.Price is good too.
[Update 15/09/07] * natterjack have these for £19.99 a pair, yes £19.99.guess who bought some more?
Strengths: very light and feels airy,wicked away sweat brilliantly.Has a nice cut to it and fitted like a glove.tested it on my long run straight from the packet-no chaffing at all.washed and dried like new. a perfect top.
Weaknesses: maybe a tad narrow around the bottom, but that's because i am dead fussy!!
Overall: A great running top, does exactly what it says on the label.A good price too.Shall definately buy another.
Strengths: these shoes are like wearing slippers. they are soft but not too soft and very comfy.The toe box is roomy and they have nice long laces!!I like the guidance system and although i have orthotics these make me feel as if i am running loose and in a natural motion.
Weaknesses: these are quite wide, although i do have very narrow feet.They do also seem quite heavy for me.Expensive but the older versions would probably be cheaper.
Overall: A very good supportive shoe, soft yet not too soft and they look great.If the price comes down i would definately buy another pair or two.
