Comfortable Road Shoe

Comfortable
Hard wearing
Expensive when brought from running shop- much cheaper on internet
I have so ran around 400km in my Brookes, and they still have a lot of tread in them. I am hoping to get around 700-800 out of them.
I had never brought a specialist running shoe, previously running in Adidas trail shoes just because I liked the look of them. Then as I got more and more into running I invested in having my gait analysis and then brought some neutral shoes off the back of that.
In my trail shoes I was starting to get arch pain, but no such pain when wearing these shoes.
There isnt a great deal of support, and found that I have rolled my ankle a few times on tree routes.
I would recommend these shoes, I have ran intervals and long runs (up to 23km) alike in them and had great perfomance from them.

Just a great shoe

Comfortable over distance even on hard surfaces, lightweight, look great,
I transitioned to these from structured stability shoes with orthotics (that actually created more injury than they purported to aid) and immediately felt the benefit, these assist me in my efforts to become a more natural and efficient runner landing mid-forefoot. I don't have narrow or wide feet but have plenty of room in the toe box and whilst I do sometimes feel I want to tighten the laces to get a more secure fit, once I start running I feel confidant with the fit. I tried these on alongside half a dozen other shoes and new straightaway I was in the right shoe, in fact I ran 13 miles the first day I had them with none of the usual gripes I usually experienced. A great shoe.
