Overview

A favourite for many runners looking for a lighter shoe to train in or to use in races. There is some support, which is not highly prescriptive, but then anyone with too many biomechanical issues wouldn't be looking to run far in this type of shoe. The Trainer is nicely cushioned given its weight, especially in the heel. New colour for 2008

most comfortble shoe EVER

the 2004 version was the most comfortable shoe i have ever run in. breaking 'golden rule no. 203 - never do a long race in brand new shoes' - no problems whatsoever. in fact it was the most comfortable 20 miles i ever raced. I went online annd bought up 2 more pairs right away. Luckily there were few changes to teh shoe until 2007 ( much like the 2008). Th eshoe now looks far more speedy, but lost the great flexibilty across the toe joint, it feels a little constrained. I still have 2 pairs though ;o)
Find the perfect shoe for you
