“iRun because I am healthy and able to do so” ~ Kim Hamill
The following is a guest post by Kim Hamill.
Pros: I like the weight of the shoe, it is lightweight and feels airy on my feet while providing cushioning through my mid-foot. There is plenty of room in the toe box for my feet to move and breathe
Cons: While I found the toebox provided lots of room, I felt the heel felt tight, almost like the shoe tapered through the midsole to the back. I also did not like that there was no support through the back of the heel.
Overall review: I used my GORun Rides for a variety of runs, short distances, longer distances and through both snow and dry weather. I am switching from a more minimal shoe where I had too little support, and found that this shoe while still extremely light, forced me to strike mid-foot, and provided lots of cushioning through the balls of my feet. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for the feel of a lightweight shoe, yet still wanting some comfort and cushioning. I will definitely continue to use them for my upcoming half marathon training.
