I love these shoes! They are the second version of this New Balance model and I have run a lot in both of the, from fast training runs to races. They are light and responsive, with great road feel and ride. I use them for any run, but especially longer tempo runs, where they "shine" due to their speed and cushioning. I also have run races from 5k all the way through my PR half marathon: after debating many different shoes, I went with these and was very impressed! Their color is bright so I feel safe in them as an extra way to make me visible to cars. They are good on road and smoother trail (I would not use them for trail running). I also like that they still have a 6 mm drop, so they're not totally flat. The ride is very neutral, which is perfect for fast runs. If I had to choose one shoe that can do just about anything, these would be on my list. They are terrific.
