Overall: The shoes fit well - they are comfortable without feeling like there is a lot of spare room in them, the materials feel and look better than my last pair of Asics 2100s - the sole in particular is hardly showing any wear at all after 100 miles. A minor point but the laces are good and are just the right length.
They offer good support and my knee pain has diminished significantly since wearing them.
The only downside is the price tag - I am waiting until the price drops to buy a second pair!
Finally, this is my first time wearing non-Asics trainers in 5 years and am happy I have made the break. The Trance 5 is a decent alternative to the Asics 2110s or Kayano.
