I wear the shoes for 2-3 miles daily/twice daily walking my dog. Shoes are lightweight, and have a very good heel to toe roll. Sturdy enough to jog/run when the dog makes me! I'll be buying a another pair soon so I have the same shoes when I retire these so I won't have to go looking all over again for that perfect pair of shoes.

You Pay for What You Get

This is not a good running shoe. More suitable to walking or casual wear. The bottoms are slippery and wear out quickly. You pay for what you get.
