Rated 4 out of 5 by Light Weight Not as cushioned as well as though, but better than most. Needs little more arch support. Ordered in store home delivery excellent! March 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great neutral shoe Not only does the shoe look amazing it is a comfortable running shoe. May 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GreAt sneakers The manager was very helpful. I will definitely ship there again. He should get a raise. Eileen Eckert April 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dicks shoes The shoes are great, probably over priced for a foam shoe from new balance. The nike lunar glides have better anti pronation support. But I had to come back to the store the next day because sales man forgot to remove electronic tag March 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than the commercials! (For myself) I thought that it was a product that was just selling, because of the commercials and "foam" concept. Yet, as a daily jogger and runner, it is an awesome product for those who want cushion in their step. It does wrap around the feet extremely tight (compared to most shoes), but it is well worth the price. It doesn't need breaking-in or time, because it is comfortable. However, it might take getting used to. They aren't the lightest shoes around, but when running they sure feel that way. I definitely suggest trying them on before purchasing them. March 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Shoe I've Ever Worked Out In The most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. When I wear my Foams, I have an extra hop to my step! March 11, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lots of Hype, Just Another Shoe I read a lot of hype on this shoe and I was very excited to get into the store, purchase it, and get to running. After owning them, I can say I am just plain underwhelmed. With approximately 30 miles on them so far I struggle to really feel a difference from my previous running shoe. The one big difference; they don't nearly fit as well. I can't put my finger on it, just not a good feeling shoe. Sure, they will hold up for the duration, I just don't see them as living up to the hype. Hopefully they break in and feel much better, but as of this point I am not excited. March 11, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not for a Heel toe striker Decided to try shoe because of the weight and new tech. For me not a good choice. I am more of a heel toe striker and noticed this felt like I was wearing a tennis shoe. Not much cushion or arch support March 10, 2014
