First impression upon seeing shoe: Damn! This is a thick shoe!
First impression upon trying shoe on: Damn! This is a thick shoe!
First impression after a four mile trail run (hey, I really dislike road running): Hmmmm… that wasn’t bad at all. No ground feel, but they allowed for good, natural form.
First impression after wearing all day on my feet at school: They felt pretty good; students thought they looked cool (not sure if that’s a positive or not). The down side- like all shoes, they are hot.
First impression after 12 mile run on roads this morning: Four millimeter heel caused some knee pain after nine miles, but otherwise led to a pleasant run. Form got pretty bad towards the end without feedback between sole and road. The smooth, seamless interior worked very well.
Full review coming in early December.
