Cracking lightweight trainer/racer

Lightweight
breathable
great grip
look great
in a size 7.5 mine weigh in at 210g
Not much cushioning, but that's not a con on a lightweight racing trainer!
My first pair of racing flats, I much prefer the low heel drop and little amount of cushioning on the heel, suits my running style very well, and I don't lift my feet very high off the ground, wore these in my debut marathon, which I completed in 2.53 and they performed amazingly.

Super lightweight yet at no point did I wish I had more cushioning, so perfect!

I also race 5k Parkruns in these, and the light weight makes it feel like you're flying along, hardly notice you're wearing them!

A great performance shoe from 5K to Marathon

Light. Bright. Comfortable. Good balance of flexibility (in forefoot) and control (in midfoot/rearfoot). Great traction from sole material.
Need to buy half a size bigger than your usual size as they come in on the small side.
I love these shoes (and I don't say that very often). They are a very good performance shoe that you can race in from anything between 5K and the Marathon (and I have) as well as tempo runs and intervals. If you're a reasonably efficient runner (ideally not a heel striker) and not overly heavy on your feet, you could probably use these shoes for all your running though I tend to use them only for performance sessions/races as well as 20+ mile Marathon training runs. If I had any complaint it would be Adidas's usual idiosyncrasy of making shoes a good half-size smaller than the benchmark size they indicate (why do they do that?) - otherwise they are faultless but I wouldn't recommend them for runners who need lots of cushioning.

A super ride!!

Lightweight
Great fit (wider toe area)
Amazing 'Continental' tyre grip
Breathable mesh
Check out the fluorescent and black colour way @ wiggle
Nothing really worth mentioning even the price point is very competitive.
I would however prefer a tiny bit more cushioning in the toe area but a thin sports insole and a good pair of socks always does the trick to make a snug perfect fit.
If you’re looking for a performance shoe to race or train in at high speeds for a sub 3 hour marathon or a 38 minute 10k then look no further. This shoe provokes lighting pace without the fear of slipping. The grip is so amazing this shoe could work off road and on track as well. I am working towards a 2.50 marathon in Brighton this year and after testing these out I now believe anything is possible what a find!!!
