Got mine because I wanted a pair of black trainers for the Honolulu Marathon. Wanted a pair that I could run to work in and then wear them during work hours. Not exactly sure what I will wear for the actual full-marathon, but it is pointing in the direction of wearing these for the actual race too.
Although I got the shoes for aesthetic value, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were very high-quality trainers. Incredibly light but with a very cushiony feel. Im a forefoot striker so appreciated the cushion on the forefoot and low heel. I also liked the cushioned firmness on impact and toe off.
My only complaint was that it was a little slippery inside. Perhaps because of my relatively thin foot my foot moved around a little bit in the toebox. Switching to the proper lacing may alleviate this problem.
Overall, I found the shoes to be incredibly comfortable and very easy on the legs. After an initial 13 K run I was left without any pain or discomfort except for slight discomfort under the laces in the right foot. Again, proper lacing may alleviate this problem too.
These shoes look great, feel comfortable, and are light and fast as can be.
