first run last night - before going out i noticed a small lump inside the shoe where the 'stripes' are stiched to the upper on one of the shoes. Thought it was just some unfinished plastic from the mid foot cage but it then appears it may be some stitching. Was only there on the left shoe but decided to go anyway and see if it really would dig into my foot which luckily it didn't.
First impression was the shock of the cold air rushing onto my foot through the knitted upper - boy it was cold. You could definitely tell there was more boost material though - both in bounce and weight, i think these are about 30g heavier than the old ones which i could really feel later into the 7 mile run.
Best bit - the heel section with the 'cutout' for the achilles - so much room at the back for the foot to move it was really noticeable how comfortable it was at the back.
First verdict - easily the best shoe they have done so far - just worried about the weight. I was an Energy Boost regular but the addition of the knitted upper and the heel section has made a really good shoe even better.
