the short lifespan. They're only 14 quid as well. but the mangostins aren't exactly high mileage...! yes, I'd say get a bigger size than usual, adidas are small fitting anyway, and I seem to remember that all of their racing shoes produced around that sort
Weight 131gEvaluation The Mangostin takes the mantle of being the lightest racer on the UK market. Its 11g lighter than New Balances outrageous RC150, and both are 60-70g lighter than what most efficient runners would consider their safe limit
racer/trainers, and then a short-lived 180g racing shoe.Adidas came up with the outrageously-light mesh-soled 131g Mangostin in summer, and now Nike has produced something in between. Still crazy-light by any normal runners standards, the Air Streak
