A very capable shoe. Used these and the previous 2's to run two London marathons without any issues at all.
Great straight out of the box, I've done 10+ miles as a first run in these and had no difficulties. Comfortable snug fit, although I do have slightly wide feet, always had enough toe-box room. I have high arches which can be a problem in other shoes though these cope ammirably. The 2's can be picked up fairly cheaply at online discount websites.
Tend not to be too durable, however I am 'Heavy for a distance runner' (13 Stone) as I've had pointed out to me at various races, I still get 500 miles out of them. They aren't really grippy enough for true cross country, but then they aren't advertised as such.
I like these shoes and have had 4 pairs for two London marathons, including training of course, and I would definitely use them again in future.
