USER REVIEW BY DAVID RANDALL
A very comfortable and lightweight shoe (I think I have socks that weigh more!) though on wider feet they're a snug fit at first (especially around the midfoot area). The inner sleeve made them feel more secure, and after about 20 minutes they adapted to my foot shape and felt good.
When I first ran they felt hard and not very responsive, but after a short time they felt softer and gave a smooth ride, helped by the flexible grooves and waffle lugs in the sole. Occasionally, I felt as though the shoe was resisting, especially on harder terrain, but overall I felt in control and this lightweight shoe seemed very durable.
They gave good support at the heel and toe; the midsole less so. They felt very secure in the toe which gave me the confidence to attack downhill without fear of slipping or getting unwanted movement inside the shoe. I lost control on loose or very wet terrain (gravel, very slippery trail etc.), but overall the support was solid.
They were surprisingly roomy in the toe box, accommodating a wider foot such as mine and there was enough space for my feet to breathe. The upper mesh was lightweight and breathable and not compromised by the supportive Flywire.
A good price and although the ride feels a little harder than I prefer, and they're not as supportive as I would like, they arguably make up for those negatives with improved control and comfort tied up in a very lightweight shoe.”
