Within the first week of wearing this shoe, my Achilles tendon was KILLING me. I didn't want to believe it was the shoe, but as soon as I switched to a different one I started to heal, and I haven't had any problems since I stopped wearing this shoe. I also got blisters on both pinky toes from these shoes and I've never gotten blisters from running shoes before. It also felt like I couldn't get the laces to support my foot in a way that felt comfortable. Just an ODD fit for me. I was very disappointed in this shoe.

Just started running again and bought these to replace some old Aasics Gel Kayanos that I loved. Bought them one size bigger and the shoe fits perfectly from heal to toe. However, I feel my heel lift as I walk in them. Took them for a run and did not have the same experience; no annoying lift noticed. However, I can't say I love them due to my walking experience. Good cushion; comfortable out of the box. Think the problem may be b/c they tie too low in the foot?

I've never worn this brand before, but decided to try these on a whim. It's not easy to find a low-volume stability running shoe that fits my narrow, flat foot and my orthotics; but, these fit the bill nicely. They are much more stable than I expected from their appearance and weight. My only issue has been pronounced heel impact on one foot, which I fixed with a thin gel insert (and which could just be a gait issue on my part).

This is the third time I've bought this pair of shoes because they are excellent for running. I first bought them in a fancy running store and paid almost double, so I was very happy to find them here for such a low price. I might buy another pair to trade in when mine get worn out!

I ran with these the morning after I got them and they were perfect right out of the box. I ordered a half size larger than normal and they fit like a glove. I have narrow feet so others might want to order up a either a half size or a full size. At the end of 5 miles the only thing hurting is my legs which is as it should be ;)
