WE SAY: It’s basically a racing flat, so it’s meant for elite runners. Still, it’s handy when attempting to clock a personal best and it offers a good level of arch support even though it has minimal cushioning. It is super light and you’ll feel very agile wearing them. It functions like a cross between a lightweight trainer and a sprinter’s shoe.
Fit/Comfort: 8.5/10 — It is a super snug fit and flexible
Cushioning: 5/10 — There isn’t much cushioning but still provides good arch support.
Stability: 10/10 — At just 225g, it’s lighter than your average canned drink. Great for speed.
Design/Aesthetics: 8.75/10 — It looks like you’re wearing a tennis ball on your feet but it’s still strangely appealing.
Recommended Retail Price: $135
Availability: Available at New Balance outlets.
