Strengths: They do dry quickly, I took them to Wales during torrential rains.
Weaknesses: Took a while for this to be comfortable, it's a rather solid sole to it and I'm still getting blisters - but then I'd get blisters whatever I wear so it's not necessarily the shoes fault.
Overall: I like pink even if these were scarily pink till I got them a bit mucky and I like trainers made in the UK. These are my second pair of New Balance trainers and I'm quite happy with them now that I'm used to them. Wish they were just a bit cheaper though!
