Pros Very breathable, comfortable on long runs, lightweightGreat for weightlifting, breathable, sensitive forefootStability while weightlifting, exceptional grip while rope climbing, excels in power transfers during sprintsVery sensitive, breathable, comfortable on runsStability, support, style options
Cons A tad too much compression for weightlifting, upper not very protectiveUncomfortable for running, lacing systemSome experienced heel slip, sole is stiff for long runsLess supportive, narrow fitUncomfortable for running, less breathable
Bottom Line We love this versatile shoe for running and light weightlifting, but believe there are better models out there if you're a heavy lifterThis shoe excels in the weightlifting metric, but is not one we'd recommend as a versatile and well-balanced modelIf we could have just one pair, this jack of all trades would be itThis model excels in a variety of metrics and provides excellent stabilityThose shoes will provide stability when doing heavy lifting, but are not ideal for running workouts
