As others have mentioned, these offer a good balance between performance and support. No break in required. Light and comfortable. I have fairly narrow feet and these feel perfect, so people with wide feet might want to consider a 1/2 up.

I bought these shoes to train for my first marathon. They offer a great balance between light weight performance and cushioning for those long runs. I have run in the now discontinued Mizuno Wave Elixir for the last three years and these are an outstanding replacement.

Pearl shoes are always comfortable and these new eMotion are no exception. No need for a break-in. These shoes are ready to go out of the box. They feel very light on your feet, which is great for longer runs.

I've put about 200 miles into the 2015 N2s now, and went from loving the shoe to finding the ride feeling a bit awkward. As a reference, I also run in the trail N2s (previous generation though), trail N1s, and N0s. First, the sole is very firm. If you are expecting plush, you should get away from the 2015 EM line. With that said, firm is ideal for a responsive shoe, and that is exactly why I like taking these out for tempo work. I find however that after spending a week in more minimal, flexible shoes, or in cushioned shoes such as Kinvaras or Hokas, I have to adjust back to the feel of the 2015 N2s, making my gait feel awkward. On a positive note, 200 miles has done very little to the bottom of the shoe-- I can see this pair lasting another 300 miles at the very least.

I'd also recommend: Altra, Brooks, Saucony

Nice and light with great arch and heel support. I had to go from my usual size 9 because they were too tight to a size 9.5 which fit great lengthwise but was a little looser in the toe box than what I like. I am a little concerned of blisters from a looser side to side fit due to having to go to a 1/2 size larger. I plan to keep these because but have some reservations on this pair. I really like PI and was successful in the past getting shoes in size 9 that fit perfectly. I wonder what changed?
