Excellent running shoes, comfortable and quite responsive and flexible. They find just the right balance between lightness and strength of the materials and they offer a great potential for versatility. They are a good compromise between the new trend of ultralight running shoes (such as the Puma Faas 300, offering extremely light and breathable upper constructions) and the traditional training shoes, with tougher upper parts, more robust and more stable, but necessarily with some more grams.
Surprisingly good grip on all terrains and conditions, they adapt well to fast trail running also on loose terrains and even on snow, thanks to the clever design of the sole. A nice extra: the side stripes are refractive.

                     

The Good:
  • Versatile
  • Comfortable
  • Light
The bad:
  • The strength of materials could be improved in some of the critical points (e.g. on the lateral part of the upper where toes flex)
