Evaluation One of the most striking features of the RC240 is its distinctly 80s look. But if you can get past the grey, yellow, blue and white colour scheme, youll find a perfectly decent racer. The RC240 replaces the
distinctly more monochrome RC230, which we said was a shoe that would suit lightweight, fast and efficient runners for short distances and
speedwork on soft surfaces.
The same goes for the 240. Thats because while the rearfoot offers the kind of
cushioning youd expect in a marathon racer, the forefoot doesnt. There are no stability features, so theres quite a bit of flex between the forefoot and rearfoot, which means stability-oriented runners should give it a miss. The soft, malleable upper,
while comfortable, also raises
questions about support and durability.
