    I've been rotating the 5.0s in with my new balances. I wouldn't use them for all-around activities until you could run very comfortably in them.

    I got the 7.0s last weekend for $60. They're awesome for lifting. Nice and low to the ground with good lateral support and just a bit of a heel.

    I only wear Asics. Nike sucks, IMO.

    I like them a lot, just make sure to follow the instructions and get used to them gradually. once I did this they were the most comfortable shoe i've ever worn. need to get a new pair though as they fall apart fairly quick.

    I wouldn't mind a pair for lifting but wouldn't want them for running. I'm a supinator so I need a lot of cushioning when I run.

    I believe in cushioning for everyone, really.

    what version did you have that fell apart fairly quickly? the new ones are supposed to have fixed a lot of the issues that came about with the older versions.

    i'm guessing maybe the thin material along the heel came apart as well as...?
