      Review by JOltrop (Posted on 1/20/17)

      I picked these up partway through the 2016 race season and I don't think I'll every go back to a traditional shoe.

      It is the only shoe that I've ever had on for a 50km run that I didn't want to take off immediately after stopping.

      There is a adaptation period if you are used to shoes with hell-toe drop or are accustomed to shoes with a sock type upper (I wore Adidas Ultra Boosts for the prior year).

      The will never win the stating line fashion show but you and your ugly shoes will be the happiest person when you cross the finish line.

      I've put 380 miles on these and plan to keep going until they literally fall off my feet. So far, the treads are the only thing showing any wear. No issues with the upper fabric (some reviewers have commented on this). These kicks are just unbelievably comfortable without must cushioning. Feel fast!
