A little background. I was a regular runner, then I tore my calf muscles. Then I sat on the couch for too long. My calf’s healed and now I’m getting back into running, walking on the treadmill first. I’ve always been a heavy runner, so finding lightweight, but also stable, shoes was always a challenge. These shoes are somehow both amazingly light AND stable for a heavy runner at the same time. I’ve put in some miles and their fit is perfect and they almost feel like they’re urging me to test them and run (not ready yet at 267 pounds). I feel like when I’m ready to really run, these shoes will be an even greater asset. I highly recommend them and my wife will soon be getting her pair or pairs (if the shoe fits, buy it in every color).
