“First run with them; I had no problem to run faster than my usual effort- it’s bouncy and I can feel the energy return and support provided by the hyper lightweight vault foam and tuned carbon plate.”

Overall, when it comes to the performance and its key features, the shoes met the expectations of most seasoned runners.

“There was plenty of grip, and the combination of the outsole and the upper helped make footing feel confident over every step and this shoe is like a beast with claws.
The shoe is breathable, roomy and strong.”

A little TMS tip, we would advise you to wear comfortable socks with more padding as the shoes have a thin upper build for a more comfortable running experience.
