Reviewed by: sole_foot Date Product Reviewed: 08/26/2011 Product Type: Footwear Really loved these with the insert removed. Excellent ground feel. If you missed a stone amd hit it you feel it. The only issues with them was durability. After only 150 miles the soles had worn down in areas to the insole material. I have never had to retire a pair of any other manufacturers foot coverings in a month. Completely unacceptable! Nice summer road shoe if they put some R&D into the sole.
