Love these shoes! I am 100 lbs. overweight and have a short, wide foot with a high arch. The Monday after Thanksgiving I started the Couch-to-5k running
program and was wearing some Asics
when I started but saw these mentioned on a running
forum the week after I started training. Intrigued, I ordered them and have hated taking them off ever since! The speed laces are fantastic, and they're actually lighter than my old runners - I tried wearing the Asics
after a couple weeks in the HOO's and my legs and feet hurt almost instantly. I am currently on Week 6 of my training and running
12 minutes at a time without stopping and I know without a doubt these shoes have been instrumental in my success as a new runner! I want another pair already. Don't let the look fool you - they're not as bulky as they seem, and they're super lightweight without being cheap. Mine still look new and I'm running
on both dirt and roadway.
