    I tried a pair on the other day... and to me... they felt like my "old school" Converse... with just a little more padding. But I don't say that in a bad way, I was going to buy a pair, but I had just spent $100 on a pair of Oakley's... so I had to put it off for now.... I didn't care too much for the choice of colors thou...

    I haven't really read up on em, but if they're as light as the advertising compaign makes them seem, they're probably not great training shoes because they'd be too light. It's good for a shoe to be light, because too heavy of a shoe can put un-needed stress on your ankle and make running a bitch, but too light of a shoe and you dont get the added training-benefit of having some heft on your feet. They wouldn't be great racing shoes either because a racing flat would be considerably lighter. The only good part about them I can see is that if you're running through rain, they wouldn't become like 3 pounds each by soaking up an assload of water. If you run on trails, these shoes are right out because of lack of ANY support.


    If you want a pair of gym shoes, buy some chucks for PL'in or just get a regular pair of running shoes / crosstrainers and avoid the fashion hype - this is my suggestion.

    They say that they are not for everyday running. They are for increasing the strength of the foot and are only supposed to be used a few times a month.
