Light, fast but rather slippery.
The Distance elite shoe is a fantastic lightweight shoe which has so far been great for short sharp interval sets and a couple of paved 5km efforts / races. However when attempting anything on a surface that is not 100% dry or paved these shoes become very slippery and I have little confidence in them being able to keep me upright. Trying the BOCO shoe for these types of condition would be an idea, But whilst in the Distance Elite I need to hope Wales stays dry.... should probably order myself some BOCO's!

Super Comfy
I'm rehabbing from a medial meniscus tear so I'm not totally up to speed and am only going out for 3-4 miles at a time 3-4 days a week; I cross train on my bike and rower, too. Here's what I've found: I took out the stock insole because it was too hard and replaced it with a more cushioned one which works great. For the first time in my life, I'm running w/o socks and it's amazing. The lug under the balls of my feet are fabulous because my foot tends to slide forward and the minimal heel drop plus the lug prevents or minimizes that. Also, the shoe's configuration allows each of my feet to land, spread out and balance as they need to; since ankle and leg reconstruction as a child, my feet are very different and they handle the striking and rolling phases of my gait differently. Not wearing socks has helped my feet balance, too. I run on concrete and occasionally some gravel. Both wet and dry traction are outstanding, even on gravel. The uppers are soft and not restrictive so there is no rubbing so no blisters. So far, I've been power walking steep and rolling hills and jogging/light running and these shoes have been great. I haven't gone full out yet because my knee isn't ready. They are a big help to my knee because instead of tilting forward as they usually do with a greater heel-to-toe drop, it's flatter and this takes pressure off the front of my knee which also helps me when I run down hill - def less impact. As with any new running shoe, I did wear them around the house and around town and went out for walks in them before jogging. So far, they have held up well and I've been wearing them almost every day because they are super comfy (and I don't usually wear my running shoes after I break them in unless I'm running so that's a good thing). The last test will be how my feet handle the impact when I start picking up the speed on concrete. Great shoe.

Favorite Running Show
These are the best. I bought my regular size instead of ordering up in size and they fit snug but have stretched slightly over time. They aren't ideal with super thick socks. Other than that they are my FAVORITE. I can run miles! Prior to getting these, my feet were so cut up, blistered from running in old shoes. These are light as could be. Want to buy these again when these get run down.

I Love them!!
The colour is inspiring. The easy slip on fit is so comfortable and relaxed.

Love it!
From the moment I tried this shoe on it felt great. It's lightweight, responsive to my foot strike and movement. I have run both short and longer distances in the shoe and they are great for both. I cannot find anything negative to say about them.
