With a simplistic upper, the running shoes are among the best solutions for training. They are great at higher speeds. It is why they do not come with the thickest cushioning. At the same time, the shoes are among the leading options from Nike for responsiveness. They do not feel too soft and they are not too rigid either. Made for the average runner, they are comfortable and responsive across most surfaces. The fit is not bad either, especially if you are not a fan of the tighter designs made by rival manufacturers.
