Obviously this was disappointing, as the trainers had been bought with the intention of being used as running trainers. I thought to salvage the situation by just using the trainers on the exercise bike instead. Unfortunately, there was a hitch here too, as I found that the top layer of the trainer is to thin and offers no protection/barrier against the strap of the exercise bike. So, as well as not being suitable as a running trainer, the trainers also can’t be used on an exercise bike it seems.
Looking at the price of the trainer, I can’t say that I am overly surprised at the issues and I suppose you do get what you pay for. In short, I personally found that these trainers were not suitable for moderate to extensive physical exercise and that they are only suitable for light activity, such as walking. Unfortunately, I bought the trainers with exercise in mind, so found the trainers to be completely unsatisfactory and unfit for purpose.
In terms of positives, they look as the pictures suggest and I found the sizing to be accurate.
This however is not a road running shoe. The sole offers little to no shock absorbtion whatsoever, I am by no means a heel striker and tend to land more midfoot and even so found these a little jarring. For sure not for long distances and I cant imagine using them for speed work. For short jogs maybe.
On the upsides its a good looking shoe, and for the price is relatively well made. This is ideal for gym type work, jumping on a treadmill for a mile or two, barbell squats maybe even crossfit type stuff etc. As a trainer for day to day walking around its probably ideal and fairly comfortable.
For the price very good, I would pay any more than £60-70 for them as they're aren't up to the same quality as the 800 series shoes.
Although they look really comfortable with the huge amount of foam they're actually quite firm which I don't mind. They're alright as an everyday running shoe although most will want something a bit more cushioned especially if you're road running.
I've ran just under 100km in them so far with the longest run being 26km. No sore points, no blisters and feet didn't get too hot. The laces are very thin and I'm not sure they'll last long. I won't be using these for any speed sessions though, they don't feel all that responsive but you can still run quickly in them.
I'm a size 13 for running shoes and these in 13 are a great fit.
If you can get them under £50 in your size you've got yourself a bargain.
