Rated 5 out of 5 by Blackcoog Great Running Shoe!
I love this shoe. I was overdue for a shoe replacement. I run about 5 miles a day, usually on the treadmill with some outside running. Recently, my right shin started getting sore so I figured it was time for a new pair of shoes. I wanted a neutral shoe with some good cushion so I picked these up. I immediately put them on and ran 5 miles without any shin pain. The red color looks great. The shoes are extremely light. There are a lot of color options but the stores don't appear to stock many colors (black, red, gray at mine).
My concern is that the mesh fabric may not hold up over time. When tightening the laces I was worried the mesh would tear. It's fine for now so I guess only time will tell. The other downside would be the price. This is not a cheap shoe.
The Dick's salesman hated Nike. I'm not sure why. He tried to push me to a Brooks Glycerin 11 B (he owns them). Those were too bulky/heavy and slightly uncomfortable. I wanted something smaller/lighter. The Flyknits were a much better fit for me.
