When it came time for a new pair of running shoes I chatted with a consultant online via the reebok website to answer a few questions for me. I decided to purchase a pair. Nothing to lose with free shipping, right? Out of the box and on my feet I ran a 5k race 2 days after I received them. They feel great. I do notice an arch on the outside of my arch closer to my heel. At first it was annoying, but I don't know if I broke them in or have just become used to it. Either way I'm happy with the shoes. One thing I will say, if you care about this kind of thing, is they appear much sleeker in the online photo than in actuality. I went from my last 2 pairs of running shoes being the Reebok Realflex, which I loved, but they are sleeker. I don't care that much about esthetics and they are comfortable for my wide feet.
