Well, obviously, I bow before such a well reasoned and balanced argument.

But, I'm on my fifth pair of Perseus II's and wouldn't wear anything else for distance running. I've been put off the Perseus III because they've moved the medial post further forward so I guess that the ride will have changed in a similar way to the way in which the Asics 1090 altered when they introduced the Asics 1100.

The medial post on the Perseus III has moved backwards, not forwards. It is now purely in the rearfoot. Loved the first version, not the second and quite like the third version. Fourth version coming soon and will be re-named as Span Triax...

Hi Sensible! Good to see you.

I too loved Version 1, but have struggled with Version 2 and 3.

Will the Span Triax be more like the 1?

Hi Nessie,
No longer with a certain company, so I've got no idea what the new version will be like. Hope it will be like version 1 or the original Span Triax, as that was a splendid shoe!!
