Evaluation If youre a relatively efficient runner who wants a simple 10K racing shoe, the Tiger Paw will do fine. It would also be good for slightly less efficient runners over shorter distances though, as with nearly all sub-250g racing shoes, its not a model for anyone with genuine stability problems. Its built on a fairly straight last, so the ride is geared just as much towards comfort as speed; the cushioning is fairly soft; and the ride is pretty smooth. The upper is light and airy, too. Theres no wow factor here: its just a nice-fitting, acceptably light racer. There are models with smoother rides, faster feels and better midfoot stability (though not all in the same shoe), but the Tiger Paw is fine as an all-rounder.
