Great shoe! Not that great in wet conditions though.

I alternate between this shoe and the Ghost 11. I use this shoe on faster runs and interval workouts mostly and the Ghost's for recovery runs. I love the feel of the shoe and it looks pleasing as well. My only complaint (hence the 4 stars) is that these don't have a very good grip in wet conditions.

Exceptional shoe - stable, comfortable, light

This is an exceptional shoe. It's comfortable, stable and lightweight. Gives me confidence that injury risk is minimized with long runs and many miles. And confidence in generating leg speed with marathon, half or 10k competition distances.
