Well, I’ve used this shoe for every race I’ve done, including a 10k, a 4 miler, and a half marathon. they are amazingly comfortable and I just don’t want to race in another shoe. they have enough cushioning for the ones who are not ready to go to a lighter shoe and this would be a smart transition, but they are very light, wide and comfortable. They’re my go to shoe now. Haven’t run them in trails though, and not sure I’d do most of my mileage in them but they’re a perfect in between and definitely my right hand shoe for races (though I’d probably still wear the TypeA5 for a 5k and under). Love them. Want another pair!
Are these the new substitutes for the Wave Elixir 8s (which is MY shoe, and they’re not going to make them anymore!!)?
okay, will add some more info up there, but will test run today and report back. SO excited!
So how did you get the Sayonara? Are you a shoe tester?
