I am a midfoot striker and not a real speedster. I'm in Oz so it is mostly hot dry running. I like this shoe but there are a few things I would note: The good: The shoe fits really well with enough room in the toebox and a snug but cushy fit around the ankle. The grippy sole is faultless. The shoe runs well in hot weather doe to good ventilation for a trail shoe. The cushioning in the heel is very nice and it is quite soft when you need to use it on downhills. The bad.... The front half and back half of the shoe don't match. The front is much harder than the back. This means that the transition is a bit odd and on downhills it slaps your forefoot down. The rockshield has no effect. I would suggest that the rockshield is replaced with 3mm of EVA giving a flatter ride (8mm) but matching up the front and back better. It's a personal review .. just my opinion.
