race shoe, but it doesn’t have a par­tic­u­larly ex­cit­ing colour scheme. The in­ter­nal toe shap­ing makes for an all fab­ric fore­foot up­per, which can let lit­tle road par­ti­cles slip into the shoe cav­ity, which one tester found to be un­com­fort­able over dis­tance.

The tongue is quite large and free float­ing, and took some ad­just­ing to sit snugly dur­ing the test­ing. In bare feet, it took mul­ti­ple ad­just­ments to sit com­fort­ably with tri-laces. The sole is well struc­tured and the de­sign gives a good feel on the foot strike both on and off road, while the bounce feed­back balanced the com­fort and shock ab­sorp­tion in the longer runs with the re­spon­sive­ness re­quired when at­tempt­ing to put some speed into the sessions.
