Overview

While this shoe offers great support it also has very good cushioning. The smoothness of the shoe does not mean that things are not happening to reduce over-pronation. There is a good feel to this shoe as it gives fairly springy cushioning but also has a great transition from heel strike to toe off. The Control At Origin design helps to start dampening over-pronation from the moment your heel hits the ground. The feel of the shoe is very natural.

Take care of that air

Had shoes for about 5 weeks, replacing some Asics 2120. Good level of support, and very comfotable, completing a couple of 20 mile runs with no issues. Then the sole got punctured by a thorn and made the shoes unusable after only 120 miles. The vunerability of the air cushion is a major flaw is an otherwise good shoe.
