Lack of Support
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 October 2020
The trainer has an extremely hard and inflexible sole which offers little in the way of support and seems not to absorb any impact whilst running. In short, whilst running I found that I felt the impact of every step in my achilles and ankles, which is something I have never experienced before with a pair of running trainers.
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.
