Even without too much cushioning, the shoes feel solid. With direct contact with the knit upper, they also represent an interesting addition when it comes to durable shoes as they show no creases even after a few hundred miles. At the same time, the lack of thick cushioning allows the shoes to feel very flexible. It is why they are a good choice when you want to have a tighter feel. The design can be improved in some aspects, but at the end of the day, the shoes are mainly made for optimum performance beyond the best aesthetics.
