Road Race Suitability
Hot Spot Part II
I ran Berlin marathon in them and aside from a bruised toe, had no aches, pains or blisters the next day. The heel is thin enough to allow good form but cushioned enough to smooth out stones on canal towpaths.
I train and race in 2 pairs of these which I alternate and I really can't fault them.
They come in a whiter than white faux-suede which will be tan with road dirt before a week is out but then running shoes are meant to be used to looked at
