This shoe aims to provide exception levels of control for over-pronators. In that job it is great. Yes, its a little bit dated, its a little heavy and it's not the most stylish, but for control - outstanding. The quality of the shoe is every bit as good as other shoes from the brand, it's a nice fitting well made upper and cushioning is plentiful.
At first glance this is a lot of shoe. There's loads of cushioning and a large medial post. This adds a certain weight and bulk to the shoe. But it's made for the more severe over-pronator and it works very well for that runner.
There deep cushioning makes the shoe stand out, as does the medial post. It is a big old chunk of denser material in the shoe - old school style - but it works. If you are a more severe over-pronator and/or a heavier runner, this shoe will control that roll!
A well made upper with plenty of padding around the heel counter and collar helps make this a very comfortable shoe from the very first step. That comfort helps, particualrly for the heavier runner, in that it gives the shoe a more welcoming feel given its weight.
There's nothing of particualr note about the outsole, but there doesn't need to be to be honest. It's durable and does the job. In a shoe like this it's all about the cushioning and control and that works just fine.
If you are a heavier runner and/or need lots of support this shoe stands out in that it offers all you'll need at such a great price. It's almost a secret, a forgotten shoe, but seek it out and you'll be amazed at its performance, value and durability.
