When you a) charge an above-av­er­age price and b) make changes to a much-loved model, you need to be sure that what you pro­duce hits the bulls­eye. That was not the case here. This it­er­a­tion of­fers the fa­mil­iar sta­ble, pil­lowy, no-fuss ride for neu­tral run­ners, and the lighter Flyte­foam cush­ion­ing ma­te­rial went down well with our testers. But an ‘im­proved fit’ was the op­po­site, with a new heel clutch fail­ing to do its job, the toe­box be­ing a tight squeeze and the mid­foot sec­tion not wrap­ping the foot ad­e­quately.
