im not a expert in running shoes nor have i been a runner. i started going to the gym so i needed some running shoes and saw these on sale with a nice grey and red color. break in didnt seem long i wore it the night i got it and next day to the gym. feels comfortable now but there are times when my feet does hurt. maybe because i do sort of have flat feet but its good shoes. im about 7.5 wide but all my shoes are size 8 wide i never liked my toe touching the tip of the shoe.
