A revelation after the 16s, which bruised and blistered my heels. The 17 is vastly improved. No blisters.
Like a dog returning to its vomit I took a chance on the 17 after the utterly disastrous 16. What a pleasant surprise! The 17 has brilliant forefoot cushioning, much better fit and much improved comfort over the 16. Also the 17 has a smoother transition due to the lower heel-to-toe drop & softer forefoot. It now rolls through the transition smoothly rather than slapping like the 16 did. The 17 breathes better - feet don't get sweaty like the 16s.
Could not be happier - this is a vastly improved shoe over the 16. The changes look small, but the net effect is large.
