Overview

This might not have the impressive feel of the Wave Rider but it still stands up well as a neutral running shoe that does all that you'd ask of it. Nice cushioning and a good feel.

Solid Dependable Shoe

I agree mostly with the summary of the shoe. It isn't quite as plush as the wave rider but offers pretty good bang for your buck. I also feel that the heel cushioning is slightly more robust which went very quickly on my wave riders. Cushioning is very good. Not great for going super fast and is slightly too heavy-weight for faster sessions but very good as a day to day trainer for plugging out the miles.

Comfortable

Hi,
I run every weeks over 10 km with these shoes and it's a real pleasure!
I've no more pain with my achille tendon, my knees or my back in spite of my weight (1.80m for 92kgs).
Maybe the durability is a little bit too short : 1000 km and they are off.
Regards from France
