I LOVE these shoes. I used to wear the Asics Gel Foundation running shoe until they stopped selling them. The Cloudflyers feel like pillows. FINALLY a stability shoe that's not stiff! I got this tip from another review: take a photo of the laces. If you ever have to re-lace the shoes you're gonna need it. I also had a problem with the little loops for the laces at the bottom. I didn't run much and one of them snapped, not very sturdy. The first version of this shoe is AWFUL DO NOT BUY THESE. They are stiff as a board and I can only walk in them, even then they're uncomfortable. The upgraded version is perfection.
