These are my exceptionally clean 10-year old running shoes. Reebok clearly returned something on my investment.
I’ve never felt a shoe like them. They’re clean because I only run on beach sand or an indoor track. I put them on and take them off trackside. They offer a glove fit with no discernible relative motion between foot and shoe. They tilt me forward onto the ball of the foot. I’ve enjoyed them.
The difference in foot angle on landing in-shoe vs. barefoot—and the shock transmitted through the heel up the leg into the hip joint—versus being mediated significantly muscularly through the leg is persuasive for me.
