'Brilliant - super flexible, great midfoot cushioning, light as a feather. '
Strengths: I've run about 70 miles in these (including two 20 milers) having decided that the Brooks Pureflow 2 wasn't as good for me as the previous version. I would definitely recommend these for any mid-foot or forefoot strikers looking for something light, extremely flexible but with a wee bit more cushioning than the GoRuns. These are a transitional rather than a minimalist shoe but I forget they are there and find myself running light and silently in them. I disagree with RW that these are mainstream.
Weaknesses: Nothing! My new favourite!
Overall: I'm planning to run Belfast marathon in these. Particular features are the roomy toebox (I have previously bought half a size up in running shoes but not necessary with these), extreme flexibility, mid-foot cushioning. A bargain at £70. I have put 'average' for durability because although they are showing no signs of wear at all after 70 miles I haven't had them long enough to give an assessment of this.
'LOVE THEM! FLEXIBLE, LIGHT, CUSHIONED FOREFOOT BUT LOW PROFILE'
Strengths: Ideal for mid-foot/forefoot strikers who want something very light and with a low heel-to-toe drop but enough forefoot cushioning to prevent bruising, leg jarring from concrete, or foot injuries from stones. I've had minimalist shoes in the past (Nike Free Runs, Saucony Kinvaras) and while I loved the flexibility of the Nike Free, being on the heavy side I needed a BIT more cushioning for longer runs. The Saucony Kinvaras were not for me: ugly (in my opinion) and inflexible (by comparison)
Weaknesses: None that I've found so far after 75 miles. I've scored only 'average' for durability as I haven't had them long enough to judge this.
Overall: So much fun to run in: light, bouncy, flexible, encouraging mid-foot striking. I've just ordered the trail version (pure grit).
