    by fromAwesome for treadmill but nothing else I'm 6'5", 235lbs. When I first put these shoes on I thought they were the best running shoes ever. I normally go for something closer to a light, barefoot feel but these are so light and the cushion was amazing. I use these shoes for running on the treadmill and wearing around town. I take very good care of all my clothes, especially my shoes. Within the first two weeks the black started coming off the rubber on the toes. At this time I was only wearing these shoes at the gym for treadmill and stair workouts. I'm pretty sure the first time I kicked the guard on the front of the treadmill the coloring came off the shoes. During the first month I had two other pairs of running shoes I was also wearing at the gym so these may have been used a max of 10 runs less than 3 miles each. The other shoes are Saucony Type A5 and both pairs are over 6 months old with very little signs of wear. After the first month I started wearing them around town. After two months I had to buy expensive insoles to put in them because it felt like I was barefoot on concrete. I've now had the shoes for 4-5 months and more than 50% of the sole has come off the bottom of the shoe. These shoes were so light and so comfortable I wanted to buy 20 pairs. I'm so glad I didn't because the construction is so bad. If you do buy these shoes only wear them on the treadmill for short, slow runs and remove them from your feet immediately after you get off the treadmill.

    by fromFine for running but flimsy I purchased these shoes having been given great sales patter by a sales assistant. The shoes are very fast and fairly comfortable- well at least for running not for walking around all day. However the main problem is the flimsy construction. The sole literally is falling apart after less than 6 weeks of wear. The color has faded and worn. All in all nowhere near the price paid.
