Feel pretty solid

Reviewed by Aditya from Columbus, OH on Sunday, May 1, 2016
These shoes feel pretty sturdy and stable. I've not used them on any trails. I mainly bought them because I wanted something with a durable sole. Compared to a normal running shoe the feet seem more stable in these roll-wise.
As another reviewer mentioned though, the sturdiness comes at a price. These shoes are relatively less comfortable. The mesh kinda things on the upper (the kind that looks like an Asics logo) from the lace eyelets to the sole joint are made of some very sturdy material (maybe some nylon threads underneath?). While these are supposed to reinforce the upper and maybe make the toe-box more form-fitting, they can dig into the upper face of your feet sometimes.
Also, these seem to run a size smaller. I generally wear a US12, and ordered the same for this pari, but they were at least a half-size shorter than a pair of Nike running shoes I have. Consequently, the mesh-digging-into feet problem was much worse, and my toes were also a little cramped. I returned them and got a US13, and the fit is much better. Since this whole process costed me about $10 extra and a chunk of my time, I gave this a 4/5.
