I have run in many shoes, I’ve tried all the bands. Finally I have come across a shoe which is perfect for running distance. I’ve tried the 4% and they don’t work for me at all. I’ve run 2 Marathons and 5 Half Marathons in my Carbon X. Best shoe money can buy if your serious about running. You won’t be disappointed.
I am now on my forth pair of Carbon X shoes. I do have orthotics which I place inside these shoes. My podiatrist has looked very closely at this shoe a recommends its design and the propulsion delivered because of the carbon plate. It suits my issues perfectly and without these shoes, running marathons for me would be harder because of a few little issues I have. I have been running my entire life, these are the best long distance running shoe money can buy. These are not a fashion shoe like some others on the market, these are running shoes made by people who run. They are comfortable, lite, breath very well and my feet have not been sore after the last 3 marathons I completed this year. This shoe is worth the leap of faith to try!
