Got rid of my very bad achilles and knee problems, but give me a few blisters

very good cushioned support. Totally alleviated my achilles and knee problems.
With my old new balance the morning after my achilles was that bad I was walking as if I had club feet. My knees would also be very painful if I ran over 10 miles. THese really got rid of that.
Blisters on heel, toes, and ankles. Only done 50 miles in them so far, hopefully my feet will get used to these.
Brilliant cushioned support. Really good for achilles and knees. Few blisters though. £60 from sports direct.

Great neutral shoe for wider foot

Great for people with wider feet
Very comfortable
Probably not for people with normal / narrow feet.
Look battered after 200 miles or so (even in summer training)
I chose these after having chronic knee and ankle problems with Kayanos. As soon as I put them on in the shop I knew I had the right trainer this time.

Superb shoe.

As soon as I tried them on I knew they were IT!

Like wearing slippers but with superb cushioning and stability! Wide toe box. Didn't need breaking in. Felt good from my first run in them. Recommend them to any non-heavy female runners.
Nothing negative apart from a tad pricey.
I went to buy Cumulus and they didn't have my size. How grateful am I?

Great high mileage shoe with fantastic cushioning

Needs no breaking in
A real workhorse of a running shoe, soaks up the miles
Not cheap
A bulky unit, especially in the heel region
You can run and run in these and your feet won't complain at all.

Very comfy and great for clocking up the miles. A good choice for heavier, neutral runners.

From out of the box they were very comfortable with superb cushioning.
From a technical point of view none, though they are on the expensive side so it's worth shopping around.
Great shoes for a neutral runner. I used to suffer with knee ligament problems (from other sports rather than running) but I have been able to step up my mileage (from half to full marathon training) wearing these without any problems or niggles.

Despite weighing over 15st I find the cushioning and comfort are superb.

I've clocked up around 300 miles in them at the time of writing and they are as good as when I first wore them but it's tough to comment on their durability as I would expect this anyway.

I will be searching the 'net during January to buy another pair at a price much below the RRP!
